To Cape Cod

Friday, September 1st, 2006 | All Things, Family, Travel

Mom, Dad and I set out for Cape Cod in the early afternoon. Labor Day traffic clogged the I-95 through the southern half of Connecticut; the GPS informed us that we lost an hour and a half in traffic, but as the cars ground to a standstill around New Haven, it felt much, much longer.

J & J drove in from Boston after a full day’s work to meet us at the Cove. By the time the four of us settled in, it was well after dark. Alas, perennial favorite Seafood Sam’s closed at 9:00PM on Friday — Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in New York City anymore — as did just about every other restaurant in the area. After considering our dwindling options, we settled upon a dinner of classic American chain fare at Friendly’s, home of the Fribble and the Jim Dandy: five scoops of ice cream, strawberry, marshmallow and chocolate topping, a split fresh banana, sprinkles, walnuts and whipped topping — “divine decadence” indeed!
