Memorial Day Weekend

I hope everyone had a beautiful Memorial Day Weekend!

Jason and I didn’t have any real plans, but we ended up having such a great weekend just being on Cape Cod and soaking up the unofficial start of summer!

We started off treating ourselves to a HUGE plate of fried seafood and chowder to celebrate the end of our semester (and both doing well in our classes!) – this thing had fried sole, shrimp, scallops and clams and it was AMAZING!

Memorial Day Beach…we even dipped our toes in the water, but I think it’s safe to say that’s all that will be going in the water anytime soon!

Memorial Day Feet in WaterOn Saturday yoga on the beach made it’s return!  I’s been one of my favorite summer activities for years, I was so excited to see my friends Nancy and Don who teach the class and loved taking my yoga practice outside to the beach again!

I’m working on the full recap, but (*SPOILER ALERT!*) Jason’s only goal for his second half marathon was to run under 2 hours and he CRUSHED it finishing in 1:54:56!  (I finished about 2 minutes behind him after I made him leave me at mile 10 when I started struggling – I didn’t want to hold him back!)

Did you race this weekend? How did it go?

Would you want to live where you vacation?

  1. Congrats to Jason, that’s awesome! I love to vacation on Cape Cod, but unfortunately I don’t think we’ll make it this year–too much other fun stuff going on.

  2. I never really went to the Cape when I lived in Boston, but it was fabulous every summer weekend when so many people were at the Cape and I stayed home. All the streets and stores were so quiet, it was great getting errands done.
