Monday Memories: The Eighteenth!

Cape Cod June 2007 057 (Medium)

June 2007

My memories today are of vacation 2007.  We were in Cape Cod!  We went at the end of June and there were no crowds yet.  The weather was pretty cool still and the ocean was f-f-f-freezing.  There was a little ice cream parlor/sandwich shop down the street from where we stayed that we went to for sandwiches and ice creams!  The inn that we stayed at was a little weird.  The room that we were staying in was connected to the rest of the inn, but it was like our own little cottage.  It had a big room on the main floor that was a living room/dining room/kitchen.  It had two sets of stairs going up to the loft area.  Well, they called them stairs, but they were as steep as ladders!  The loft had three tiny bedrooms.  The bathroom had such a low ceiling that my husband could barely stand up in it.  The shower felt like it was about 2′ x 2′.  (I’m sure it was bigger, but not much!)  They had a print of a cowboy over the toilet that had creepy eyes that looked like they followed you.  In the evenings when we were downstairs watching tv, we heard all kinds of bumping and thumping noises upstairs.  I told the kids that was just the people in the attached room making noise upstairs.  Then, on the day we were leaving, my kids read a guest journal that was in the room that mentioned how supposedly the room is haunted and the guests thought it was so cool to hear all the thumping.  I looked from the outside and saw that the adjoining room did not have a second floor.  Yikes!  Also on the day we were leaving we had a cute little visitor to our room.  A chipmunk ran through the living room and out a hole to the outside!  What a place!
