Cape Cod, Massachusetts

I have always loved the cape and I still do.

I spent some time at the tip of the cape in a little community called Provincetown.  Each town on the cape has its own distinctive personality and charm and there is something special about every community you come across.  I didn't get to spend as much time here as I did last September, but it was special just the same.  There really is something for everyone on the cape.

Most of the days were rainy when I was visiting but I took advantage of the clear breaks when they came.  I took Max for a spin in his trailer, walked along the beach, went to the bark park, strolled around commercial street and soaked in the sights.  I didn't take as many photographs as I did last year, but these are a few taken with the three cameras I have with me.  I did pretty much the same as I did a year ago.

Sometimes I like to set the timer on my camera and jump around on the beach to entertain myself.  It's actually quite the workout and good for a few laughs when you watch people passing by staring at you.  I don't mind.

Other people didn't mind the weather and enjoyed a campfire on the beach even though it was windy and in the 50's.

It was also interesting to see new signs up that tell you the mileage from PTown to Long Beach, my home base.  Just in case you were wondering, it's 3,652 miles.

I look forward to sharing more adventures coming up within these 3,652 miles.

Thank you Lauren! Yes, it was interesting to see a sign to show the exact mileage home. :)

I'd love to just take off and explore this country. Vaguely remember visits to Cape Cod with my mom when I was little. She's from Millis, Mass. About the only impression of those trips that really stuck was Plymouth Rock being smaller than I thought it should be. Wonderful photos! I can't wait to see more.

There used to be an army surplus store in P-town where I got a lot of cool photos one year in college. A bunch of us drove there over the columbus day weekend, stayed just outside of p-town in a cheap motel and in P-town day and night. Is that store still there???

Yep, that shot of Max with the wind in his face is great. I'll have a talk with Sinbad and see if he'll do likewise for me next time out.

Thank you for your comments Rocket Man, Amy, Sinbad, Anonymous, Sandy and Kim!

Max is a tough one to capture lately since he tends to look away each time I get the camera out and ready. :)

@Amy - I think that store you are talking about is still there on commercial street. :)
