In the quiet days of August we stayed in Rome and enjoyed the somewhat calmer pace of this chaotic city. Mark's days at the office were shorter, Noah's friends had almost all left to start their first year at university; it is a time of year when the evening light lingers and a long walk to dinner through the center is a relaxing activity. We took advantage of the somnolence and tried a few of the new places that had opened recently in town. One of these newcomers is Emma Pizzeria.
The irony is not lost on me as I am heading to Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary to meet the research team and volunteers to check on turtle nests. My own proverbial nest is just days empty and here I am looking for baby turtles tucked safely into sandy nests on the Cape Cod sea shore at the Wellfleet Bay Nature Sanctuary.
Sometimes you want an adventurous vacation. Somewhere new and exciting and bold. Sometime you want your comfortable standbys. To end this exciting summer we were looking for something in-between the two.
Cape Cod, about two hours from Boston, was a new destination for us and Woods Hole Passage is a comfortable as your best friends house where she left you the key and a full refrigerator. In a word Perfect.
