Truro and Provincetown

As I mentioned yesterday, I went to the Cape for a long weekend getaway. Saturday we took another ride and we headed to Eastham to see if the Eastham turnips were ready, but found out they won't be ready for market until after the first good frost. I want to get some of the sweet Cape turnips for Thanksgiving. The Cape hasn't had any hard frosty nights yet so far this fall..very unusual.  No turnips, but we decided instead of heading back that we would keep going and head to Truro and Provincetown. I stopped to take a few photos of the beach in Truro, because the clouds looked so pretty in a straight line over the water.

So, then it was on to Provincetown...we didn't get to Provincetown until late afternoon. My cousins Debbie, Cheryl and I parked the car near the harbor and walked along Commercial Street.

We stopped at the Mayflower restaurant for a lobster roll, french fries and cole slaw for supper. Yum!!!  The meal was delicious.

After walking around a bit we headed back to the car, and were starting back home, but first we continued thru town into the west end. So many yards were still awash in color as there flower gardens were still in bloom and going strong.

Did any of you watch the TV show Tabitha Salon Takeover? Well, one of her shows Tabitha took over the hair salon in Provincetown, and here is a picture of the shop.

I love these photos. Now I'm homesick for New England (grew up in Connecticut, taught in Rhode Island, lived in the Berkshires for two years - all before I moved to the midwest almost 30 years ago.
