It was amazing...

... truly amazing. This vacation to the US has always been my dream, and it was exactly as I imagined. I would like to share some pictures with you.
We visited the lovely countryside of Cape Cod and drove down to New York. Two opposites; this made this vacation very special.

I adore lighthouses. On Cape Cod, there were so many of them!

There was actually someone living in this house. Having your own lighthouse, how amazing is that?

Breathtaking beaches... with the typical Cape Cod fences.

Right before Halloween, there were so many pumpkin patches. They made such sweet decorations in front of the white houses.

Oh, another lighthouse with the crystal blue sea... This one was on Martha's Vinyard, an island near to Cape Cod.

We went whale watching. I've rarely been so impressed.

We were living next to this beautiful lake...


Cape Cod has their own beach seat style. They know how to relax (and that you absolutely need a place where you can put down your book!)

Lovely countryside and white houses...

I love the American prim country style. Even though it can be quite colorful, I think it can be lovely on white!

I wish I could have shopped till the airplane dropped! Unfortunately I couldn't buy this entire shop (including furniture)

How I miss those!!

I wish this cutie came home with me!


This mailbox is so cool!



This house is not so representative because it's red (and not white or grey), but it looks so sweet. It's actually a great decor shop.

Little house...

... and big house: NYC


Hope you liked the pictures!

Good night,

Chani

  1. Liebe Chani!
    Schöne Fotos aus den USA, obwohl ich ja gestehen muß, daß Amerika so überhaupt nicht mein Land ist!! Aber diese ländlichen Aufnahmen finde ich toll... du hast recht, wie toll muß es sein in so einem Leuchtturm-Haus zu leben!!!
    Ich freue mich auf mehr Fotos (oder??)!
    Viele liebe Grüße von Ann

  5. HAllo liebe Chani, solange habe ich nichts von Dir gehört und nun lese ich das Du Dir einen großen Traum erfüllt hast!! Das sind wirklich tolle beindruckende Bilder, ganz besonders das von der Walflosse!! Da meine Tochter ja im August aus den USA nach Hause gekommen ist, habe ich gerade die Bilder von Martha's Wineyard schon gesehen. Sie war dort mit ihrer GAstfamilie in Urlaub! Auch das Bild von NY bei Nacht kommt mir sehr bekannt vor lach!! Gelebt hat sie für ein JAhr in Norwell, 10 min. entfernt von Boston! Auch eine Stadt die Ihr persönlich sehr gefallen hat. Nun dann geniesse deine Traumreise beimAnblick der Fotos nocheinmal!!
    Ich wünsche Dir noch eine schöne Restwoche und schicke Dir allerherzlichste Grüße
    Marlies

  6. Hello Chani!

    You've captured Cape Cod (and New York!) so beautifully! I'm glad your accommodations here on the Cape were pleasant, and that you were able to enjoy the fall colors. I wish I could send you some Dunkin Donuts! Hopefully on your next visit we will be able to meet. Have a lovely day! ;)
