EVERYONE loves to give me shit. “What are you doing there???”…”why are you living on the Cape?”… “you need to move.” blah blah bleh. I could go on for hours about the constant bitching and unwarranted advice.. oh yeah, did I mention this ONE “why aren’t you working in the oceanography field?”
Well guess what you BETCHES
And sometimes you end up on a gigantic sand bar
Seriously like this place sucks…
Now I see why everyone says MOVE..
Here are 6 legit reasons living YEAR-ROUND on the Cape does not suck:
1. We live where you vacation
Didn’t the guidos in Jersey Shore invent this phrase? LIVE BY IT.
2. The temperate climate
Because the Cape is surrounded by ocean, the climate is significantly more moderate on the Cape. Remember reading about the urban heat island in geography class? That shit is real!!
Boston: 85°F Cape Cod: 68°F
3. The ocean
Feel stressed out or just want to relax? Walk the beach. Plus having it all to yourself in the off-season is not too shabby.
4. The architecture
Cape Cod style homes are all the rage. When I lived in LA, I couldn’t walk 5 feet in Brentwood without seeing one. Which leads me to…..is there anything better than a quaint Cape Cod style home???? HOLD HERE…I’ll wait.
Bogs are EVERYWHERE! Watch these nutrient packed “craneberries” grow all summer, come falltime, witness the magic that is harvest, and when the bogs are flooded in the winter, enjoy an outdoor skating rink (if global warming would chill the f out)! YES
6. Unlimited nature
Here on the Cape.. it’s all about the outdoors. I mean look at this perfectly free bike path!!
People like to call year-round Cape Codders townies. I like to call them snobs. Living in one place all year is normal, having multiple properties is not.
Here’s to adopting a new, more realistic mindset. 🍷🍷🍷
