Happy Valentine's Day!

How this foodie does Valentine's Day.

Before all the snow moved in...(Nauset Beach, Wellfleet, MA)

Treasure hunters out on Corporation Beach in Dennis.
One never knows what the sea will wash up with all these winter storms we've been having.

Low tide in east dennis, ma. In a couple months this beach will be filled with people,
hard to imagine now that it's 20 degrees and very blustery.
Lands end in Dennis, MA.
A couple days ago this was covered over with the ocean.
One day it's calm and beautiful, the next day it's covered with raging waves and snow.

Sagamore Bridge, Cape Cod, MA--gateway to cape cod.
Have you crossed it? Rather have you sat in traffic on it?

Imagine having this view every day? Dennis, MA

New ice cream joint on the cape: The Local Scoop in Orleans on cranberry highway.
Make your own sundae.
They have nutella whipped cream!

**Someone very sweet, went and nominated my  blog on The 2014 Homie Awards via The Kitchn.
First, whoever did that thank you so much!
And second, since I'm up there, I would love to see how far I can get up there; be kind of neat to get in the top 20 or top 10?
Would you mind voting for me?
That would just be so neat.  And thank you so much if you did and to whoever went ahead and nominated little old me.

  1. What adorable cupcakes! Happy Valentines Day, Dawn! :)

  2. My husband's job took us from the Boston area to Chicago over 20 years ago. We never dreamed we'd be here as long as we have been, but the plan has always been to go back to retire on the Cape. We're heading there next week to check on the construction of our retirement home in Falmouth. I am beyond excited! In the meantime, your photos brought a big smile to my face, and I'm still smiling. :-) Thanks for the heads up on The Local Scoop. You had me at Nutella whipped cream. Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. Dawn, you take the most amazing photos. I really enjoyed that coffee bean video you posted, because I am such a coffee fiend. :) I hope you had a great valentines day - and I'm jealous. Whole Foods loves you and I haven't even met them....yet. They should be opening soon in my area!

  4. Your man rocks! Such a great gift. I agree with Shelby, your photographs are just awesome. Strawberry almond milk? YUM! And nutella whipped cream?? I'm in

  5. Any man who gives you Nutella is worth keeping.
    Happy Valentino Day, doll!

  6. that ice cream places makes me want to take a day trip to the Cape! haven't been out there in about 2 years.. and I've been stuck in traffic on or before that bridge many times!

  7. Those pictures remind me spring actually will come one day. If I didn't know it was winter, I'd think it was 70 degrees. Gorgeous pics as always!

  8. I'll go vote for you right after I finish this comment! Great list of links, as always. And a fun post! Thanks.

  9. Yes, I would love to have that ocean view every day. And, that sundae. And, now I want to make homemade tortilla chips.

  10. Such beautiful photos! My husband's aunt lives in Dennis, MA, and it sure is nice there. You've compiled some awesome links here as usual :) In particular, I NEED those bday cake m&ms. What took them so long to come up with that?! ;)

  11. Gorgeous landscapes and lovely links!
