The second week of our vacation was spent at Pop's house on Cape Cod. Brian's brother was already there.

This was the vacation of sunsets. We saw a beautiful sunset at each of the three locations we visited. The sunset we saw at Thumpertown Beach, looking west over Cape Cod bay, was one of the best I have seen.
We of course had to celebrate Brian's birthday one more time. And I made his favorite birthday cake.
We had a great time on the Cape. We managed to rest and relax, catch up on our reading, walk on the beach, spend time with Pop and do a few chores around the house. And, yes, I took several walks to admire the salt marshes.

My mother in law was an antique dealer, and the decor at the Cape Cod house is very early american. Brian and I bought a very modern painting by S. P. Goodman at the Left Bank Gallery in Wellfleet. And hung it in the living room.
We thought it looked great there. And luckily, Pop agreed.
