A Great Wall

I just thought I’d share a couple of photos of this great picturesque wall of a house I saw, along one of the coastal roads, in Cape Cod ~ of Cedar Shingles and Lobster Floats.

Simply Eye-catching!

Meeting venue (without agenda) of Chairpersons

You come in hungry,
you take your seat; you eat.
You finish, stand, sigh happily…
then it catches you eye and
you stop to scrutinize and read.

Sorry, no red-carpet either, but by golly, I’d happily hold a chow-down meeting there again if I’m in the area.

The carpet is definitely not red.

Cape Cod ~ Chatham to Provincetown (Pt 2)

Nauset Lighthouse icon of Cape Cod potato chips.

The Lighthouses of Cape Cod are so famous that they even have their own iconic brand of Potato Chips!
So how can I not visit Lighthouses while there?
They were a must to see.
(BTW, those chips are delicious!  especially with some cold beer ~ this is not an advertisement & I get no commission 😀 )

The Chatham Lighthouse had a tour for school children when we were there so they also had a US Coast Guard vessel on display.

The Lighthouse also functions by day, showing its slow constant timed flash.

The Lighthouse Tower.

The Highland Lighthouse, Cape Cod’s 1st lighthouse, was built in 1857. It was actually moved 453ft further inland away from a cliff.
Today, the moved Lightouse still functions, operated by the US Coast Guards, and if interested, you can read more of its history here.

For afar I took a shot of the Woodend Light but unfortunately we did not have enough time to seek it out to explore further.

Cape Cod ~ Chatham to Provincetown (Pt 1)

It’s still Spring (June 21 is the 1st day of Summer) and the northern hemisphere is supposed to be slowly warming up but it suddenly got warmer than usual in the short time when we were up in Cape Cod, yes, we were caught in a heatwave, a tropical heatwave… (like the Ella Fitzgerald song goes).

Nevertheless, we explored Provincetown and Chatham.
I found the buildings and little streets simply beautiful and filled with history and took some photos to share.

The Frying Pan Gallery

Door color matching road lines ~ strikingly charming.

Little street shops ~ see Ice Cream & Fudge? 😛

Self-explanatory…

The Public Library – set up in 1895.

Old cart-wheel and driftwood furniture ~ probably an artist lives here.

Street serenity – no large buses, no bumper to bumper, no smog.

House with a garden (& path), right along the main road.

Another main road house with arty décor and a beautiful garden.

Restored old Fire Comfort Station, 189 Commercial St., Provincetown.

A side street with beautiful cedar-shingle buildings.

I kept wondering, while walking the streets and absorbing the beauty … when Summer and Fall ends, what does Winter bring?
