We got to go to a wedding for a friend, Caroline (picture below with the dogs) which was in Cape Cod, MA. We were even luckier that we had a couple days off to extend the trip and hang out with Nick & Jen in Boston (again, we visiting a year ago). We took a red-eye which was dragging us down a little upon arrival until we started to meet up with friends - it was a great crew attending this wedding - and the celebrations lasted for 2 straight days. Cape Cod is a wonderful place, especially in the summer. The town was old and the houses were huge, the beaches were very different from Southern California (trucked-in sand, lots of open space), and most things about the time there were charming and fun. The day after the wedding we drove back to Boston with Kait and Kevin, stopped in Plymouth for food - and as the hangovers wained we reached Nick and Jen’s place. They took us to the waterfront on the Charles for sunset and enjoyed a local beer / home-baked bread picnic on the docks. It was picture perfect. That night Nick and Jen taught us all about mezcal from their recent trip to Oaxaca, and unknowingly convinced me that I need to go. We all sampled mezcal from their trip and caught up. They took us up to a lake north-west of Boston before our flight back to LA the next day.
Now, a month later, I’m still processing some of the activities and fun that was able to be packed into about 3.5 half days.
