Farewell to Cape Cod

October 4, 2013

In our last 18 hours on Cape Cod, we squeezed in a lot – dinner at a fabulous restaurant, a swinging game of putt putt and a ridiculously good pie.  Let’s rewind… After a wonderful day in Provincetown, we returned to Chatham and had one of the best meals of our entire trip at Del Mar Bistro.  Of all the dinners we ate on vacation, Del Mar came second only to our Italian dinner in Boston’s North End.

Del Mar was busy when we arrived, and eventually we scored seats at the bar.  The atmosphere was trendy and modern, the bartender was engaging and right away we knew we’d found our kind of spot.

I started out with a crisp and fruity glass of Sauvignon Blanc and we ordered a few items to share for dinner.  Starting with a mind-blowing salad with grilled peaches, prosciutto, figs, candied pecans and fresh burrata cheese…

Followed by a Lobster Tostada that rocked my world…

Then we rounded out our dinner with a thin crust wood-fired Hawaiian Pizza that was delicious that night and made great leftovers the next day.

Wanting to work off a little of that fabulous dinner, the next morning I took a leisurely run down to the beach.

After showering up and saying goodbye to the Chatham Guest Rooms, we grabbed a fresh seafood lunch at Chatham Fish & Lobster Co.  Then we knew we had to hit up the one recommendation I’d been drooling over since we arrived: Marion’s Pie Shop.

From an amazing lineup of mouth-watering pies, we selected a mini Blueberry Peach pie that was literally the best pie I’ve ever eaten.

The fresh fruit filling was amazing, but the crust… oh the crust.  It was slightly sweet, totally buttery and perfectly flaky.  Eventually we tore ourselves away from pie heaven and headed for one last adventure before hitting the road back to Boston for our flight: mini golf.

Holiday Hill Miniature Golf didn’t look like much from the road, but it turned out to be a really nice course.

We had a blast, and I even got a hole in one.

After our round of putt putt, we swung by the beach to say one last farewell to the Atlantic before heading back to the mountains.  From jam-packed days exploring Boston to our more relaxing time on the Cape, it was a truly fabulous trip and I was sad to see it end.  But – and I know I always say this – returning to the beautiful mountains of Colorado makes ending even the most fabulous vacation much easier.  It’s good to be home!
