Day 34 – Cape Cod’s Sandy Shores Part 3

Day 34 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Cape Cod

What a glorious day…60 degrees and sunny!  I started out with a soft boiled egg and toast compliments of Eric and Lise.  Before we headed to Wellfleet Oyster Fest, I walked the dogs down to the neighborhood pond, Long Pond.  It was nice mile walk just to take the edge off the dogs so they could enjoy a rest in VANilla while we tried out the local fare at Wellfleet’s Oyster Fest.

Day 33 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

What a lovely day, despite the wind!  I spent the morning with Eric and Lise. Eric whipped up a great frittata while we chatted about the joys of house remodeling and determined what places I should see today.  We decided it would be best to stay around the “elbow” of Cape Cod and visit Wellfleet today and visit Provincetown tomorrow.

Day 32 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

The weathermen predicted a storm overnight and into the morning, and they were correct!  The wind howled as the waves crashed against the shore until finally…pow…a transformer blew and the power was out!  George has a gas stove though, so we still enjoyed blueberry pancakes, and I made the coffee just in time!

Day 23 – Mohawk Trail of Massachusetts

Day 23 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Wow!  I had an extremely active day sightseeing.  I covered three different states, picked up a geocache, made several stops, and got soaked in the process. Yet another dreary day!  After an excellent day on the Mohawk Trail of Massachusetts, I’m all alone in a campground blogging. It’s a little spooky by myself at this rustic spot. I’ll definitely be sleeping with my gun and bear mace tonight.

I wonder if no one is camping here due to the weather or due to its lacking facilities. I had hoped to find a campsite with electric now that I had left Vermont and was in Massachusetts. But no such luck! This is the most rural spot yet. Pit toilets only…no showers or electric. Regardless, the campground is beautiful.  Hopefully I will arise to sunshine so I can capture some photos of the three ponds Pillsbury State Park.

Anyway, back to my day on the Mohawk Trail…
