Our Mother-Daughter Trip to Cape Cod

We arrived at the airport at 4:30 - that was AM, raring to go... with smiles on our faces:  Kate, Kim, Jean, Tawny, and Tiffany.  This was a Mother-Daughter trip to the Cape and Boston planned by Kimmy and Tiffany.  Two moms and four daughters, 6 total.  Tiffany's sister, Megan, flew in from Denver and met us in Boston.  The rest of us started out in Phoenix.
Flying into Boston...
Love the housing!
We took a bus from Boston Logan Airport down to the Hyannis Bus Station.  We drove through this tunnel, which seemed very, very long.
We arrive in South Yarmouth at Riverview Resort - this view is from the back deck overlooking Parkers River.
Our first meal just had to be seafood - Tiffany was the first one to dig right in by ordering lobster.  it looks like it is hugging the dish of melted butter.
At the resort, on the top of the lighthouse, is an osprey nest - a mama and her baby.
The Veschios on the left - and the Bradsher girls on the right.
On the first day, we walked to the beach.
I don't know why, but I love seagulls.  I don't want to touch them or get close, but I like to watch them - and photograph them.  (I have no clue who the guy is in the background.)
We stopped at a Trader Joe's - fun pic of Kate and Kim.
We stopped for ice cream, more than once.  This was just the first of many stops.
Kimmy and Tiffany...
We are all interested in oils and/or herbs, so we found a lavender farm that we could tour.
Inside the lavender is drying...
and such a cute little cottage on the outside.
The whole outside wall housed birdhouses - again, not sure why, but I really like them.
These ladies are picking the lavender.  It looks like a tedious job.
One of the first places we went to was Provincetown, the very tip of the Cape.  We really had a wonderful time - a lot of walking and shopping.  We came across Scottcakes - a cupcake shop.  They bake only one kind of cupcake:  yellow cake with butter cream frosting.  I have to say it was probably one of the best - if not THE best - cupcakes I have ever eaten.  Really tasty.
We stopped for lunch at The Canteen and the meal was SO good!  We ate outside where we could see  the ocean from our table/bench.  I think this was my favorite meal on our trip.
Just a shot of a walkway - it really caught my eye.
More tomorrow!
