Cape Cod

Unlike many native New Englanders, I have never been a frequent visitor of Cape Cod. My family has a beach house on the Connecticut shore, so we spent our summers there. In fact, I had never been to the Cape until I started dating Andrew. He took me there for a weekend and we had a great time. Though my heart will always be at the Connecticut shore, I can see the appeal of the Cape. I mean, they have their own drink, and not only is it easy to make, it's delicious!

A Cape Cod (also called a "Cape Codder") is just equal parts vodka and cranberry juice. Pour it over ice and garnish with a lime. What a sweet summer drink!

We have been so busy this summer - we put a new roof on our house (did the whole thing ourselves!) and have been traveling almost every weekend. We got back from our annual trip to Acadia National Park in Maine on Sunday. Here are some shots from our vacation:
