Dear Paula and Charles,
Yes, our 50th anniversary vacation was just wonderful! I was
entranced with the decor of your cottage.
We were delighted with the way you so tastefully and cleverly
decorated it. Everywhere you looked, there were reminders of the sea or amusing quotes. It is the first
time while on vacation that I've taken more pictures of the inside of our cottage than outside to show
our family and friends.
We enjoyed swimming and walking on both our beach and Nauset and did a lot of cycling (the path though the dunes in the province lands near Provincetown was super).
Thank you so much for the flowers and card. It was heart-warming for us and what a surprise!
It was also a surprise to be greeted by your good neighbor Sue and
her sister and friends as we arrived at the parking lot on our second day and to be congratulated on our 50 years together. I think Sue had something to do with the flowers (they lasted the 2 weeks). We really appreciated the tips we got from Sue and Lee on good restaurants that were not too far away.
Lastly, Paula, what is the name of the book you are reading about
Billingsgate Island? I am very interested in reading it. Charles mentioned it when I asked him about the the plaque on the 2nd cottage from the beach. When I finish the book I'm reading, I am going to read Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau.-I've only glanced through it and noticed he mentions Billingsgate. Have you read Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh?
We will be visiting our daughter and her family in Switzerland next
year and,if we can swing it, we will go to Cape Cod as well.
