The natural beauty and character of Cape Cod sets the scene for this collection of humorous and touching stories from East Texas Gastroenterologist Rick Seidel's thirty-five summers spent on the Outer Cape. Fishing feats, boating fiascos, and sibling squabbles pepper these lively anecdotes, and, although centered in New England, Seidel's delightful vacation memories— good, bad, and ugly—will touch the soul of anyone who has spent summer vacations with family, particularly those who understand the strong bond between father and son. We all understand the experience of eating ice cream, it’s just the flavors that change.
