Day 50 July 29
The plan for today was to drive around and explore Cape Cod, and, explore we did!
I was still hanging onto my book, “The Most Scenic Drives in America,” for a little direction on what to do and see. Problem was that my book was falling apart. Cheap binding glue, I think. New pages were falling out each day. It was starting to look more like a pamphlet than a book, and it was getting annoying, so I finally just tossed it aside.
Cape Cod is stock full of cute little shingled cottages. Everywhere you look, shingled cottages. Mark decided maybe we should try putting wooden shingles on Fiona, ‘cause that would be so darn East Coast cute!
I also couldn’t help but to notice that, for such a small place, there were a metric ton of small graveyards everywhere. Made sense, I suppose, that since the east coast of America was settled early on, that dead people have been happening ever since then.
The northern end of Cape Cod was where all the action was happening for us. First, there’s Provincetown, or, P-Town, as the locals call it. It’s a very cute little town, loaded with eateries, and little touristy shops. Very pretty. But, you haven’t really experienced P-Town until you try to drive your RV through the middle of the extremely narrow and crowded main street. Dumb and crazy thing to do, but we didn’t know. Ignorance is bliss.
Since we couldn’t find anywhere to park Fiona in P-town, we bagged it and just drove to the beach with the big parking lot. Found ourselves, all four of us, on a beautiful beach where it was perfectly legal to let dogs run off-leash. All of us had a great time there!
The only thing we could really do to top off this awesome day, was to stop for a proper lobster dinner at the Lobster Shanty. Lobster, clams, clam chowder, corn on the cob, and ice-cream.
Another perfect day came to a close!
