Fall Color on Cape Cod

329 Shares

Fall in New England is the perfect time of year to see the turning leaves and experience Fall in this beautiful area of the country.

Hey friends!  We are back from our New England/Cape Cod vacation and wow, was it fun!  It was my first time up there, so I had no idea what to expect, but it was a lot of sight seeing, looking at the beautiful Fall leaves that were all turning during that time and eating so much good food.  We saw some gorgeous scenery and houses and I can’t wait to share it all with you all, but it will take me awhile to get through all my pics and get them edited.

So, today, I thought I start with some quintessential Fall leaf peeping in New England. We were on Cape Cod the whole trip and ended our visit in Newport, RI, so once I get my thoughts together and can get it all posted, I’ll share the highlights from each stop, from Chatham, MA to Nantucket, to Falmouth and finally Newport. All were unique and different and all had plenty of inspiration to see and explore. It’s true what they say about New England in the Fall. It’s spectacular with all the Fall color!

Let me just say that I’m officially in love with lobster rolls. I had the cold ones and the hot ones and they are both delectable treats. I can’t wait to get another one!  I can now see why Mark has been raving about them since I’ve known him. He’s been to the area at least 3 times and was a good tour guide for us.  We saw some new things and he shared some of the things he had experienced before and it was a wonderful trip.

We had mostly good weather, although the day we arrived and the day we left, it was rainy and windy. But the rest of the days were mostly sunny and cloudy, so it made for some beautiful pictures.  I took hundreds, I’m sure, I haven’t even counted them all yet, but I’ll start getting my posts together and share the rest with you soon.  There were SO many beautiful homes in Cape Cod that my home loving heart was filled to the brim.  These Cape Cod styles really speak to me SO much!  I’ll do a whole post just on the beautiful homes I photographed, as well as the B&B’s and the restaurants we liked.  It was an amazing trip, one that I’ll never forget and we had such a great time together.  This was our first big vacation since we’ve been married and I’m already looking forward to the next one.

So let’s start off this Fall week of November with some gorgeous leaf turning in Cape Cod.  These were taken during our whole week there, from Chatham, to Newport and in between, so I hope you enjoy!  I’ll tag the photos where they were taken.

I hope this gave you ALL the Fall feels in case you haven’t had enough Fall color in your world.  We are just starting to turn here in Georgia and it’s looking beautiful with all the Fall leaves shining in the sunshine in our backyard.  I dearly love Fall and this time of year. Seeing all the brilliantly colored leaves is so inspiring and definitely gets me in the mood for the Holiday season.

Mark and I both enjoy traveling, so you’re going to see more of that in the future as we visit more places and see more of this beautiful world of ours.  In fact, I’m so excited to tell you all that we have been invited on a Viking River cruise in December and we’ll be embarking on December 8th on the Romantic Danube river cruise. We are both so very excited to experience this trip together!  This is a blogger media trip and will be paid for by the cruise line (all we had to purchase was Mark’s airline ticket). As a blogger, I have been so blessed to get to do these things and share them with all of you. What a trip of a lifetime this will be and of course, I’ll share every bit of that trip too with y’all!  It is sure to create memories forever!

  1. In a word…Stunning! Thanks for sharing. It’s good and refreshing to get away every so often, isn’t it? Glad you and Mark had a great time.

  2. So happy you guys loved The Cape! I love living in Connecticut not far from the shore. Occasionally get a day trip in to The Cape or elsewhere.

  3. Beautiful! I grew up in NH and nothing beats Fall in New England it’s gorgeous!!!

  4. Hi Rhoda, beautiful pictures, I look forward to seeing more. Yes we have pretty color here in the Pacific Northwest. Wonderful for you to get to experience it where you did. What a fun sweet blessing for you and Mark to get to go on this cruise soon. Have you been overseas before? I don’t recall seeing it here on the blog in over the 8 years I have read it.

    God bless you guys.

    • Hi, Erika, thank you so much! I have been on several cruises and also traveled to Europe in the early 90’s, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been to Europe, and never visited the countries we are going to so I’m looking forward to it. We’ll be going to Germany, Austria, and Hungary.

    Wow! Beautiful photos! I’m so glad you had a nice visit! I live 30 minutes north of the Bourne Bridge, in the beautiful South Shore town of Marshfield, Ma. Fall in New England is beautiful, and the cape is charming year round!

    Rhoda, what a gift these pictures are. Thank you so much for posting them. I’m a native New York who has lived in Southern California for the past 50 years, so I don’t get to see the fall-colored leaves very much. Occasionally, we see yellow leaves, but never the red. Looking at these pictures helped me remember the fall beauty of the east coast and my earlier life back there. I too love Cape Cod-styled homes. Our home here is in that architectural style, which thrills me, but the trees outside are palm trees!

  7. Fall is my favorite season so you know I am at my best right now just walking around like a happy fool admiring all the colors!

  8. You will absolutely love the Viking River Cruise. What a wonderful blogging benefit! My husband and I have taken that same cruise and you are in for some amazing scenery.

    • Hi, Bonnie, I’m so glad to hear you’ve been and loved it. We are so excited, what a trip of a lifetime.

  9. What a romantic getaway and it brings back memories of my time in Cape Cod. Is a perfect time of year to go with all the fall colors.

  10. Beautiful pictures. Although I’ve never been there, something about Nantucket makes my heart go pitter-pat.

  11. Linda Hickey says:

    Absolutely breathtaking there. Hope to go and see it for myself next year.

  12. What wonderful pictures! We went to NE October of last year for our first trip and OOOOOOOOH I want to go again. AND get another lobster roll. ha! Thanks for the memories.
