I never think to take photos when I’m home (to be honest, I’m not really a photo person, and taking them is always a conscious effort). But home is just it, it’s home. To me, it’s ordinary, fairly unchanging, a normal place that I deeply adore, but a visit there is none too remarkable. I don’t chalk it up as an exciting destination worth writing home about. LOL see what I did there? Going home does many things for me, but it just doesn’t scratch my travel itch.
Sometimes when we see something or someplace all the time, we forget how spectacular it truly is and how lucky we are to be there. Cape Cod, and more specifically my hometown, Dennis, is exactly one of those places for me. I’ve been home many times this summer, and not once wrote an article or shared a picture of my visit. It’s just home. It’s cozy, it’s comfy, it’s safe, it’s mine. But it also happens to be a major east coast tourist destination with spectacular sceneries and is a summer vacation dream come true.
This past Labor Day Weekend, I went home for a glorious four days (last of the summer Fridays #sob). I tried to look at my home with a fresh pair of eyes, the eyes of a visitor. This is what I saw.
I hope you enjoyed the photos, I enjoyed taking them much more than I expected to. It’s fun to share a little bit of my hometown, that is so very much a part of me, and truly my favorite place on earth.
