After spending Tuesday in Nantucket, my family and I stayed on Cape Cod for the 4th of July. We planned to drive around to some of the other towns, but knew it would be crazy due to the holiday and the little bits we did drive around proved this point so we stayed relatively local. One place I did really want to go to, and luckily we didn’t have any troubles getting there, was the Cape Cod Lavender Farm. Seeing as how I have no immediate plans to head over to Europe to wander the lavender fields I always see and lust over on Instagram, this farm will have to do for now!

I wore a bright blue tee and navy blue shorts with white flip flops for the holiday! Oh and blue sunnies from Quay Australia too. No red, but that’s ok.
The lavender farm was really cool – smaller than I thought it would be – but a nice little trip. I walked around, took a bunch of pictures, stopped inside the little shop and bought a lavender candle before heading out.
After grabbing some lunch at a boulangerie (don’t forget, food post to come this weekend!) and stopping at Trader Joe’s and Starbucks, I headed back to the hotel and spent some time at the pool. I haven’t spent time at a pool in forever, so this was so nice and relaxing.
I’m totally into the one-piece swimsuits this year and plan to write a whole post on the ones I’ve gotten this year as well as my thoughts on them and my own opinions on body image later on this summer.
After walking down to the Hyannis Harbor – about a 20 minute walk from my hotel – we found a place to grab dinner and then headed over to watch the fireworks. We decided to watch from the little park right by the marina. I am a huge fan of fireworks. I love them so much! These fireworks were nice, but not spectacular or anything in my opinion. I mean, it was a nice show but not super impressive or anything. I’ve probably been spoiled with the fireworks in my hometown which are so good people come from other towns to see them and Disney fireworks because seriously those are the best!
Anyway, I think they were having technical difficulties or something because after 5 minutes they stopped and everyone was confused as to whether the show was actually already over or not. I saw a good number of people leaving. After about 10 minutes, the fireworks started back up so luckily we didn’t leave!
Clips of the firework show will be included in my upcoming vacation highlights videos!
Today is my last full day in Cape Cod before I head home tomorrow. Tomorrow is Friday which, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know is my Photo Challenge Friday post day so I’ll be resuming my travel posts this weekend!
