Is It in You? A Letter to My Daughters About Cape Cod

I wrote this on Monday, August 14, three summers ago, and posted it on my blog. I’ve updated it here with photos and details.

Dear Figgy (on the cusp of 22) and Skipper (age 10),

Tell me, is it in you? The love of Cape Cod?

I have gone, on and off — but lately, most definitely on — since I was about four. My parents took their maiden voyage in 1951, a honeymoon road trip from New York City to Maine, New Hampshire and Cape Cod.
