Walking the Planks With SIPPITY Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/13/2015

We were nearing the end of our week’s vacation at Yarmouth on Cape Cod so I decided to take my husband, Kent, and our two boys, Ryan-13, and Craig-9, out for a special dinner. From all the restaurant reviews I had read, I determined that we would go to the Naked Oyster in Hyannis.

While enjoying our appetizers of grilled Thai shrimp and crab cakes we reminisced about the good times we had this week: the whale watching trip we took from Provincetown, the rollerblading we did along the old railroad trail, getting ice cream at Buffy’s in Chatham and watching the Chatham Anglers play the Brewster Whitecaps, and of course the many beaches we enjoyed. “I’ll never forget that beautiful sunset at Herring Cove.” I stated.

“I liked running along the beach at Newcomb Hollow,” Ryan enthusiastically added. 

“And I liked the waves at Breakwater Beach,” Craig inserted.

“What did you like the most, honey?” 

“I thought the views of Barnstable Bay at Sandy Neck Beach were absolutely spectacular. Particularly that light house at the end.”

The cool, crisp air of the mid August night greeted us when we left the restaurant. Within two blocks of walking off our haddock and lobster and seared ahi tuna entrees we all began to feel cold. “I have a great idea,” I announced to the boys. “Why don’t we buy some sweatshirts, get some hot chocolate and go for a walk down the boardwalk overlooking the wetlands we saw the other day in Yarmouth.”

“There are 278 planks in the boardwalk,” Craig declared as he approached Kent and me as we stood at the end of the boardwalk glancing out over the breathtaking salt marshes enjoying our hot chocolate in our new sweatshirts.
