On Cape Cod we recommendsCape Cod Beer Beach Blonde for the beach the barbecue and all your summer bashes on ICE!!!

A very drinkable golden ale with a hint of toasted malt character and a clean finish. A   R-e-f-r-e-s-h-i-n-g  light bodied golden colored American Blonde Ale is S-m-o-o-t-h and easy drinking. Perfect for the beach, the backyard, or just relaxing after a long day.

There’s an old saying, that once you get Cape Cod sand in your shoes, you will always return. “Once you get a taste of Cape Cod Beach Blonde Ale, you’ll always come back for more.”

Bobby Byrne’s

Recently, we had dinner at Bobby Byrne’s in Hyannis and had the ROAST STUFFED CHICKEN it was
delicious!  An oven-roasted boneless breast filled with cranberry-cornbread stuffing, topped with chicken gravy and served with cranberry sauce, mashed potato & chef’s vegetable of the day! We highly recommend it!

Bobby Byrne’s is well-known eating, drinking and talking establishment since 1973. They have 3 locations on the cape. You can visit them at Mashpee Commons in Mashpee, Hyannis or in Sandwich.  It’s well worth it!

Bobby Byrne’s was also voted “Best Chowder” at the 2010 and 2011 WCOD ChowderFest!

Mill Stone Pottery: I LOVE This Pottery

I LOVE This Pottery

About 24 years ago I bought 4 dishes from  Gail at Mill Stone Pottery

Back then her studio was in an old mill!  I still have those dishes and not only have they served many a meal; but they have served as an inspiration in creativity and dreaming about my own goals in life.

There’s something in the design, colors and glazing in Mill Stone Pottery’s work that speaks to me more so than any other pottery out there! Sure there are many potters and we sometimes can find a piece we like here or there, but I find I consistently like the pieces colors and design from Mill Stone Pottery! There’s something serene and comforting and healing in them – kind of like taking a morning walk on the beach.

Maybe, its Gail’s education in interior design and art history, or her talent for teaching. But I am sure if you visit her studio in Dennis or her website by clicking the above link we are sure you will find something you like as well! Keep up the good work Gail!

Chatham Bars Inn

Last week we experienced our second visit to Chatham Bars Inn  We loved it soo much in April that we had to return again!  Chatham Bars Inn has been known as New England’s Finest Ocean Front Luxury Resort and Spa.  It is noted for excellent service, fine cuisine and beautiful surroundings since 1914…and we could not agree more! In matter of fact, we have never traveled anywhere that we were greeted and served so well, experienced fresh great food and in a great atmosphere.


Chatham Bars Inn is known for its ambiance, luxury and an unforgettable experience. The  rooms are impeccable designed and everything from the lobby to the restaurant, bar, lounge, veranda and spa have true unforgettable ambiance and luxury.

We had several delicious full breakfast buffets during our stay as well as great lobster rolls in the bar and amazing Lobster Nachos from the oceanfront Beach House Grill.

We also experienced their amazing Spa and we absolutely loved this experience as well. Once again the decor of the spa is as amazing as their service. Massages here are a must! Plus since we stayed in the main building we were thrilled with the service they provide to drive you ala Range Rover style to and from the Spa building.

We suggest if you have not been to Chatham Bars Inn, that you put this on your Things you MUST DO list. Whether it’s off-season or in season.  You can also experience their dining and spa services if you are not a guest of the resort but it’s always best to call first.

We have never gone anywhere that the service, the atmosphere and the food are soo good!

Thank you Chatham Bars Inn for doing what you do so well!  I can’t wait for my next visit!
