Spicyland takes Cape Cod: Part 3 (Provincetown and Martha’s Vineyard)Posted: October 2, 2011
We awoke to this view our first morning in Provincetown:
I mean, really. If you saw this every morning, how could you ever be grumpy to face the day?? I think I would be a perpetually happy person by the sea.
After breakfast we went out to explore the beach outside the inn.
We took a walk down the breakwall.
View back to shore:
Now, to spend the day in downtown Ptown!
And a lovely day it is.
As we walked, here are some houses we saw. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
Why isn’t our house on this block?! Why don’t I live here??
David’s quest for a lobster roll is fulfilled, courtesy of the Burger Queen:
I had a biga$$ burrito from Big Daddy’s Burritos.
Our tummies were full and ready to stroll Commercial Street.
First to the Way Down Town’s patio, and their pomegranate Mojito for DT and white wine for me. A beautiful beach view.
Then to Patio’s patio for some refreshing and aesthetically-pleasing Mojitos. The orig for me, and watermelon for DT. So pretty! This was such a fun place – I loved sitting outside, but the restaurant inside was so chic and beachy. I’d love to dine inside if it was a breezy night (on our next trip!).
We stumbled upon the Underground. And that was pretty much where we had some drinks, played some music on the jukebox, and rounded out the night. Aaaaaand….our camera is apparently a pile of doody because none of those photos turned out. So, no matter.
Well, this one, kind of:
Anyway, now it’s Tuesday and we had to depart my beloved Ptown. 😦 I wept, I cried, I begged for more time. Not really….but yes, a little. I loved Provincetown!
There was still lots of vacation left, but gosh. The first leg was just. So. AWWWESSSSOME! How could you top it?? (Well, we didn’t really top it – but dangit, we definitely met it with flying colors. On a more Boston-urban level.)
Onward. Dry your tears.
Our mission on the way back to Boston was to hit Martha’s Vineyard. We stopped in Falmouth on the way for a pizza lunch at Stone L’oven Pizza Co. We ordered a large with banana peppers. And it was GOOD. The crust was thin-ish and perfectly cooked; the sauce had some zip.
Now, to catch the ferry.
Here we are – into the harbor!
First things first – Vineyard Haven’s Main Street.
We quickly made ourselves at home at Bunch of Grapes bookstore.
And, well. I required ice cream. Or frozen yogurt, as it were. Helllloooo Mad Martha’s.
Chocolate peanut butter for DT, Oreo for me (a double scoop, thank you).
I ate my Oreo frozen yogurt happily on the beach.
We caught the 4:00 ferry back. On our way, we stopped at the infamous Christmas Tree Shop. WHY isn’t there one of these in Minnesota?? I could so easily decorate our home for fall with about 100 of their offerings.
