Well, I fulfilled a dream today but had a few surprises.
Caryn and I had pancakes outside in our wooded setting and watched the boy scouts in the next spot. Theirs is a group site and they were there for 2 nights. Perfect neighbors.
We headed down the Cape on Rte 28...the south side that wanders through several villages. Chatham was our favorite and Hunter got to go shopping there. We visited light houses, little harbors and almost made a wedding but didn't want to wait 30 minutes for it to start.
I was really looking forward to a quiet little spot to enjoy a sandwich or such in Provincetown...maybe hear that magical song on the jukebox...but found there are no quiet little spots (and probably not a jukebox in town). Other than the charming Cape architecture, it is very reminiscent of Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco with over-the-top shows and people. Many tourists...very crowded...but their busy season does not even start until the 4th of July weekend.
I bought a sweatshirt and enjoyed watching an angel mime whom I thought was great. We saw one in NYC also...but this one was my favorite.
It started sprinkling just as we were done with our walking tour. Weather has been kind.
We returned up through the center as we had already explored the north coast our first night. It's hard describing directions on the cape...and I never could get it in my head which direction I was headed and I usually have a pretty good nose. But the way it juts south and then curls up north seemed to confuse the directional capabilities of my nose.
Although I really liked our campground, our electricity continued to be on and off at our site, and holding a signal on the Internet was worse. The campground though - without me asking - gave me a free night. I thought that was very fair.
Well, I'll play my song now.
