I'm so excited to finally be able to share with you my Cape Cod travel diary! My husband and I just recently celebrated our 10-year dating anniversary and really wanted to go somewhere where MaQ would also have a great time. He is our baby, and after our little scare, we definitely didn't want to leave him behind. Initially planning to go to the Keys for our romantic getaway, we quickly realized that given the weather during this time of year on top of being away from MaQ, was not the best of ideas. Enter Plan B. Since we wanted to explore someplace we both have never been, my husband thought the Cape was a perfect location. Approximately a six-hour drive from New York (that's with very little traffic), it was worth every single second. 

With miles and miles of beaches to discover, the views by the ocean are breath-taking and some of the most beautiful, peaceful beaches I have ever seen. It's no wonder the JFK's vacationed there. Ultimately chic yet casual, the magical Cape will help you unwind, leaving all your worries behind. Some of our favorite beaches we visited were the Head of the Meadow Beach, the Beachcomber in Wellfleet, but my most absolute fave? Marconi Beach. I know, I know. You say Macaroni, but I say Marconi! ;) The sand dune cliffs barrel up over 12 feet as you zigzag down a wooden staircase to the most incredible beach. It reminded me very much of Santa Monica. Total Cali vibes, yet we were on the East Coast.   

We also checked out PTown, or Provincetown, which is on the very tip of Cape Cod. Provincetown is a unique blend of old-fashioned fishing village and hip arts community. Its narrow streets are lined up with quaint old homes filled with shops and galleries. We took a day trip where we enjoyed lunch at Pepe's Wharf, downing of course, all the fresh delicious lobster we could get our hands on. The best part was our chance encounter with another German shepherd, named Maggie. The owner's son was the sweetest little boy with a passion for photographing dogs. We spent the remainder of the day together, playing in the marina with an afternoon nap soaking up the sun. You can see some of the action in our video down below. All in all, this serendipity was far too coincidental. I mean, come on, what are the odds of running into another German shepherd like that? It was just meant to be. 

Other areas we scoped out were the Highland Light, a lighthouse on the Cape Cod National Seashore in North Truro. It is the oldest and tallest lighthouse on the Cape, with exceptional views at their observatory deck. We even did an editorial shoot here, check out the photos. We also got to a chance to see the Wellfleet Harbor where there was a low tide during our visit with oyster shacks and shucking stations galore - a completely different type of scenery near the shore. We enjoy exploring many different parts of a place we visit, that way you get an all-around sense of where you are, all the while really being able to take a look around and absorb it all in.

We managed to do all of this in less than three days! I definitely want to go back to embark on more adventures, as I know there is still so much more to see! Thanks for having us Cape Cod, we we will be coming back for sure! Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out our travel video below on our YouTube channel!
