Silent Sunday: A Cape Cod Morning

Over the next five months, Eric and I will be making trips down to his family’s house on Cape Cod.  Last weekend was our first time back since November.  Maki, our adorable pup, is in love with the outdoors and, as expected, was up bright and early on Sunday morning to explore.  But she can’t do it alone.  Oh no… she wants us out there with her.

Even as we’re eating breakfast, she stands by the door and barks at us.  She doesn’t want to come in and see what we’re doing, but, rather,  does whatever she can to get us to play with her.

You must get tired of reading and listening to people say how gorgeous your pictures are, but as you know, I don’t care: your photographs are gorgeous. Thanks for bringing a little of the Cape into my Sunday! You pup is adorable, and I can see she doesn’t want to pose! Cute!

Take care, Terra

El Amor de Domingo, es um amor puro.

Cape Cod looks so gorgeously peaceful! Well, except for Maki on Sunday mornings. It’s just because she doesn’t like awkward silences. I can tell.

so tranquil! With fog settled in all around me north of Boston, I love looking at your photos. Happy Sunday!

Gorgeous photos, Brian. I’ve never been to Cape Cod, but I’d love to visit there sometime. How lucky you and E and Maki are to have a place there to spend some downtime.

So charming. The pup has grown up so much & loving it on the Cape I see:).

Angela@RecipesFromMyMomApril 24, 2011 - 10:26 am

Thank you for sharing your Cape house with us. Reminds me how relaxing a Sunday should be and to go explore the outdoors with puppy-like enthusiasm.

Maki is precious! Can’t wait to see your photos from the Cape this Summer! Enjoy your day. :)

Love these beautiful pictures. Nothing says family more than breakfast together and play time with the pup. What a special spot to spend time together in. Love this Silent Sunday!

Beautiful, Brian. I’m on Fire Island and it’s like that here now. Quiet, eery, empty. The roar of the ocean is the only sound floating in the air.

SMITH BITESApril 24, 2011 - 1:38 pm

sigh . . . i can hear the ocean if i get my mind quiet enough . . . thank you for taking me there . . . happy sigh . . .

Maria @ ScandifoodieApril 24, 2011 - 2:34 pm

Gorgeous photos and Maki is just too cute!

Parsley SageApril 24, 2011 - 5:05 pm

I’m loving the morning Maki had. No wonder she was eyeballing you to hurry up with breakfast! Lovely photos :)

Barbara | VinoLuciStyleApril 24, 2011 - 5:10 pm

I am as ready as your pup to break free of winter and romp! She is adorable and I’m ready to show up on your doorstep.

KristenApril 24, 2011 - 6:51 pm

I love Nelly’s comment and agree – I’m going to say it again. Simply stunning!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the KitchenApril 24, 2011 - 7:10 pm

What a beautiful place, I can just imagine spending a lazy afternoon in that hammock. Enjoy your weekends!

Rachel @ Baked by RachelApril 24, 2011 - 8:10 pm

Always love your pictures and so jealous of having a place to visit on the Cape – enjoy! :)

CarolynApril 25, 2011 - 7:35 am

Can I come? Please? It looks so gorgeous, I am wild with jealousy.

Emily @ A Cambridge StoryApril 25, 2011 - 11:12 am

Aw, sweet pup. Our dog also strongly prefers that we play with her – even inside – and will be pretty clear in telling us!

MeganApril 25, 2011 - 3:36 pm

I love this… and wish I were back on the Cape.

sweetsugarbelleApril 26, 2011 - 12:49 am

I didn’t want the photos to end. I wanted them to go on and on and on. YOu get lots of this, but your photos are the second best thing to actually being there. WOW!

kitaApril 26, 2011 - 1:33 pm

Lovely photographs. I love the pic of the trees and sun.

ASHLEAApril 26, 2011 - 11:24 pm

Ah, how refreshing are those pictures. I visited your lovely little destination a few summers ago and it’s just as wonderful and breathtaking as those photos.

DaisyApril 27, 2011 - 9:18 am

picture perfect :) their place is going to be a great escape this summer.

Marian (Sweetopia)April 27, 2011 - 9:17 pm

Brian; what a blog of veritable beauty! I’m happy to have found your ‘home’ on the web; am in awe of your photography… if only I could do it half as good as you do!

Jen @ My Kitchen AddictionApril 28, 2011 - 11:24 pm

I absolutely ADORE Cape Cod. We’ve gone to the Cape for our vacation the last few years, but don’t think we’ll make it up there this year. Loved living vicariously through your photos.

ElleMay 3, 2011 - 11:00 am

I love Maki–she’s adorable! Amazing photos, as always, Brian!
