We decided to hike the trail around the Cliff Pond. It is listed as 3.2 miles so we estimated that it would take us an hour or two. That’s about the same distance as a 5k and you can walk that in about

We headed to Jo Mamas for breakfast. On their logo the â€˜o’ is a coffee bean which helps explain their selection, they have coffee and bagels and also bagel sandwiches. We each grabbed a bagel sandwich

Back at Cliff Pond for the afternoon we were enjoying the clear water and the sunshine. James was fetching his ball farther and farther out and having a blast. I still hadn’t pulled out the fishing
We decided to head to Provincetown at the end of the cape. We had heard it was a really neat place to visit and that they had some good restaurants so we planned to have lunch up there. The drive was
