The one place in the world I love beyond all others is Chatham, on Cape Cod. I grew up spending summers in sailing school and cruising around town with my friends. Eventually I folded more shirts (1st job) and served more food and drinks (every summer job after the 1st) than I knew what to do with. But we always had fun. Living in the middle of the country has it's benefits, but come July, the beach sounds pretty good. A long (ok, maybe not so long these days) morning run by the harbor into town is a great way to start a lazy day in paradise. Maybe one of these days we'll just pack up the car and head out for a week... puppies love the beach!
