cape cod.

OK, so last week we took a little vacation to Cape Cod.  We love Cape Cod and have dreams of retiring there some day, but in the mean time, we try to go up a few times a year for little vacations…  this particular morning we got a late start to the beach and as a result we missed out on our favorite beach due to no parking.  We found another beach that had a full parking lot as well,  but this one allowed you to sit in your car in line until others left and parking spots became available. While we were waiting I noticed this beautiful view…

It reminded me of a saying I saw painted on a little wooden sign in a shop near Watch Hill, RI — it said, “If you’re lucky enough to have a house by the beach, then you’re lucky enough”.  I felt so lucky and so grateful in that moment, to be on vacation with my family, to be in a place that I love, to have a view like that (even if the view was from the car!) …so I’m putting this photo in my Project Life book as part of my gratitude project.
