Yesterday, we went to Dowses Beach, a local establishment for Hyannis residents in Cape Cod, Massachussetts. The water was thick with a green algae and Nicole and I had some fun dressing up as a mermaid and a merman. I think we look way too cool.

The beach was rather windy, and it amused us to no end that our towels were sandy within minutes of shaking them off. A sea gull snatched a bag of our potato chips. Nicole chased the bird down, and retrieved them. My only regret was not having my camera ready for that spectacle. We baked in the sun for hours and it was good. It was actually quite nice to sit on a beach that didn’t smell bad (aka Bradford Beach in Milwaukee, Wisconsin).

Today, we leave Cape Cod for Boston, where Nicole spent a good ten years or more before moving to Milwaukee. I’m excited to visit, as I have never been there before.

I am excited for you and Nicole off on a trip together. It sounds like a lot of fun. I’m happy you’re in this relationship (which is a sentiment that is long overdue, since you’ve been with her for a while now) I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.
