Cape Cod, MA and Burlington, VT

Sandy Neck Lighthouse, Barnstable, MA

After over two-years of relative isolation, social-distancing, and canceled travel plans due to the Covid-19 virus, we decided it was time to return to a somewhat normal life.

We had always enjoyed northern Vermont, and decided that it would be a good area to visit during the hot Florida summer. We found an apartment rental in south Burlington, and booked it for the month of July 2022.

Our Florida neighbors, Kenn and Jeannie, who live on Cape Cod during the summer, had cordially invited us to visit them on our way North. Never having visited Cape Cod before, we were looking forward to taking in the sights. 

While at our friend's home, we went on a very successful whale-watching trip and took a drive to Provincetown, at the extreme tip of Cape Cod. Kenn and Jeannie were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed our time there.

Once again, Burlington and NW Vermont didn't disappoint. Summer is full of activities, and sometimes it was difficult choosing which one to attend: 4th of July fireworks, Vergennes City Band, the many fabulous farmer's markets, festivals, community concerts, breakfast on the farm, wine-tastings, and drives through the beautiful Vermont countryside, just to name a few.
