On The QT

Cape Cod, USA

Blogger: Stephanie Lynch

Cape Cod is one of our favourite places in the world. We are delighted to share with you our new vlog and blog on our adventures on Cape Cod recently. A place dear to my heart with people I adore and cherish. It’s true how people always make a place and it is certainly true with the amazing family and friends I have on Cape Cod. As many of you know, the concept and idea for OnTheQT came from many summers working in Cape Cod Sea Camps(check out how the idea came about here).

First stop was Sandwich boardwalk which is always one of my favourite spots on Cape Cod. Nothing beats jumping off the bridge at the boardwalk as a perfect way to start your day on Cape Cod. Always a great spot to watch people kayaking and even jumping into the water. My favourite part of this baordwalk is the way each piece of wood is dedicated to somebody… something so lovely and memorable.

Next stop on our road trip around Cape Cod was the Cape Cod Canal with the Sagamore bridge in the background. A great spot for cycling along the water. Also a great place to sit down and watch the world go by. All the amazing boats could capture your time for hours.

We had amazing locals show us around so our next stop was Green Briar Nature Centre. This centre is where the creation of Peter Rabbit was born by Thornton Burgees. Mr. Burgess, who was born and grew up in Sandwich, MA., went on to achieve national and international recognition for his children’s stories that teach lessons of conservation and love of wildlife. Over 170 books and 15,000 stories of the tales of Peter Rabbit and his friends. Through these engaging stories, generations of young people have learned about the natural world and developed an understanding of the importance of conservation of our natural resources. To learn more about Green Briar NATURE Centre, the volunteers and the amazing work they do.

The last stop was to visit our dear friends at Cape Cod Sea Camps. A place where you will find some of the nicest people in the world. Friends for life. I feel everybody should spend a summer working at camp and become part of the camp family. An experience you will remember forever. We headed down the 6A towards Brewster for my visit to camp. It had been three years since I was at camp so I was over the moon to see the many friendly faces I adore. Many people have an influence on your life and many people at camp influenced me. There is one person that always sticks out in my mind when it comes to Cape Cod Sea Camps and this person is somebody who thought me to have confidence, dream big and always smile… that is the camp director Otis. The confidence I built up in my two summers at camp have impacted my life hugely. I have learned that I can do anything I put my mind to and to always dream big. The confidence I gained at camp gave me the courage to set up my own business ‘OnTheQT.ie’. The camp itself is a little piece of heaven and holds fond memories for many people. For me, standing on the Cape Cod Sea Camps beach or out on the water sailing at camp is my favouirte part of the USA.
