2nd stay at Captain Kelley House, early October weekend. My hosts welcomed me back as warmly as (more warmly than?!) my own family. When Rick and Tom learned that I had a migraine, they offered to bring me breakfast in bed. How could I refuse? This is treatment I could get used to! I inhaled the pumpkin cranberry scones and the apple pancakes as well. Good quality green tea hit the spot (I'm a tea person.) Stayed in Patience room this time (last time I stayed in Capt. Kelley room.) Patience was of course immaculate, as is every inch of Capt. Kelley house, as well as the perfectly manicured garden and grounds. The decor of my room was charming and as I lay in bed, waiting for my migraine to pass, I welcomed the peace and quiet and enjoyed the opportunity to linger over each and every decorative detail: the paintings, wall hangings, textiles, etc. So tasteful, serene, pleasant. I do want to run away from home and move into Captain Kelley house. I can't do that, but I will return again as soon as possible. I'm so happy I have family in the area and an excuse to return often. Added bonus: Rick and Tom referred me to a little taste of Paris on the Cape, not far from the House: Pain D'Avignon. The desserts were out of this world--took a selection of desserts to a dinner party and they were as good as those in the best big-city French bakeries. Lunch at Pain D'Avignon was also excellent. It doesn't get any better than this, folks.
