Lower Cape

Temperatures on Cape Cod on Easter Sunday reached the upper sixties which means it was warm enough to be on the beach in a tank top! I took full advantage.Mom, Adam and I road tripped about the Lower Cape, visiting a number of beaches on the Atlantic side in the beloved towns of Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown. (With a little Commercial Street thrown in for good measure.)Cahoon Hollow Beach, Wellfleet Ballston Beach, Truro (North and South Pamet Roads) i love this house.i feel bad for this one.Erosion in full effect :(Swells. I'm actually not sure why the water is so dark and green. Seaweed influx?Race Point Beach, Provincetown Followed by a picnic lunch and some Right Whale sightings at Herring Cove Beach.After we had our fill of beach explorations we wandered around Commercial Street. We browsed the shops...Had a photo op with the matching blue fence...(We somehow wore the same color.)And drank some drinks at the Top Of The Pot Bar at The Lobster Pot over looking Provincetown Harbor.They make a phenomenal Bloody Mary with black peppercorn, lemon peel & pepperoncini infused vodka (spiciest ever!) and homemade Bloody Mary mix. Even though 5:00 seemed too late for one, I couldn't resist. Adam drank a Cape Cod Cherry Soda which was an interestingly sweet blend of Plum Vodka with cranberry juice and ginger ale. It was so nice to spend such a gorgeous day on Cape Cod, especially before summer tourist season kicks into high gear. I was so not ready to return to the city and back to work!

Your beach photos are making me want to be near water so badly. I only ever visited P town when it was still a little cold. I need to go when it's nice out.

I've been to Race Point and Herring Cove, but I don't think I've been to the other beaches you mentioned. I have some exploring to do! Love P-Town. We almost always go to the Purple Feather for gelato when we're there!

Lizzy said...

wow so many beautiful pictures daisy. I hope we are both on the cape this summer so we can hang out (my best friend bought a house in brewster!). And this drink: Plum Vodka with cranberry juice and ginger ale seems like it was made for me!

Alicia said...

Rafe and I need to get to the cape - BAD! I love that you went to Cahoon Hollow - that is one of the beaches we frequent!!

Easter was wonderful with you & Adam! What a beautiful day! So glad we went to 8 beaches and finally saw those beautiful Right Whales!

Ameena said...

Beautiful photos...but this made me laugh because when the weather is in the upper 60's we avoid the beach like the plague! It's way too chilly for us and yet there you are, rocking a sleeveless shirt.

You are so pretty Daisy!
