The Cape: Day 2
Day 2 of our Cape vacation was another very low key one...breakfast with Grandma and then a decent amount of time spent down at the ocean. The best thing about going up there in June is that you don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn to get into the more "public" parking lots ("public" is in quotations because townies have stickers that get them in free...but it's all the same lot and spaces fill up very quickly).
I'm glad we got in as much day beach time in as we did this year even though it rained two days. Last year, because we went in August, we had to rely on my family getting us out to the Outer Beach, which they could only do on the weekends because they work. Since we were there this time before "peak season," we had a little more control over where we could go and when. The down side? I am very allergic to cottonwood trees. Guess what is in full bloom in June up there? Thank God for Claratin-D.
After dinner with Grandma, that night we went to the Drive In movie theatre to see Brave and The Avengers. Talk about a double feature! I hadn't been to a Drive In since the third Pirates movie came out, and The Boy hadn't been since he was a little kid. Considering it was rainy and not sunset-worthy, it was the perfect night to go!
We only had about 5 minutes of rain total. Considering they were calling for 60% chance of rain all night, I think we did rather well!
