Our First ever family beach trip to Cape Cod

Usually every summer we spend a week in Narragansett, RI. Renting a house 0.75 of a mile from Scarborough Beach. This year we switched it up and checked out Cape Cod. After countless hours of Internet research I was able to find this house that is 1/3 of a mile from the beach and comes with private beach access. It was in Harwich Port which is on the Nantucket Sound side of Cape Cod which meant warmer waters than the northern part of the Cape and waves unlike the bay side of the Cape. Let me tell you the Cape did not let us down. Our house was a typical smaller beach house but the street it is on was filled with gorgeous houses and the beach was right at the end of our dead end street. It was a private beach so it was never very crowded and we were close enough to the beach house that Keira and Israel could walk back by themselves if they needed to use the bathroom which was AWESOME.  Due to being so close we spent even more time at the beach then we normally do. We walked there in the am's because the kids always woke up way to early. We walked there in the evenings just to check it out... It was heavenly.  And being that we did not have a newborn this year and I was not pregnant and Samuel was old enough to play and have fun and not mind the wind at the beach=awesomeness. We have already booked our week for next year. The Cape may have horrendous traffic but oh my goodness is it beautiful and definitely worth the drive! I feel lucky to live within 3 hours of this gem of a place.

 That tiny bit of blue at the end of the road is the beach
 All the yards were immaculate and filled with Rose Bushes and Hydrangeas. Never seen so many blue Hydrangeas in my life. I'll admit I find the Cape Cod architecture very appealing. Its so beachy!
 Its slightly past nap time for Samuel... can you tell?

 Beautiful, short walk to the beach.

 No one else is on the beach at 8 am...

 We had 3 cloudy days but only one with torrential downpours.
Check out these Lavender bushes!
