"We Entertain When It Rains"  


We left Boston around noon on Saturday.  The traffic was light and we were not in a hurry.  So after we crossed the Sagamore bridge, we picked up Route 6A and drove on the local roads for a while.  It was a lot more scenic and only added an extra 30 minutes or so on our trip.

We got to our destination around 3 PM.  We had stayed at the Chandler house last year and was able to secure accommodations in the same unit (#5) this year.  The unit has 2 large bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, and bath.  There were plenty of windows and an amazing water view. 

The center of town was just about a mile down the road.  There were plenty of tempting restaurants up and down Commercial Street.  However, we decided to try some of the more traditional vendors... like CJ's at the corner near the main pier.  We got a great lobster roll for $12!  It was so stuffed with chunks of meat that we had to eat it with a fork :-)  

We found great coffee and FREE Wi-Fi at the Wired Puppy.  We logged in, checked our email, and checked out a local artist all at the same time.

Whether it was a pirate ship pulling into the pier or a parade going down the center of town, we could always count on something going on in Provincetown.  We strolled up and down Commercial Street until dusk and went back to Chandler House and watched the sun set.  Tomorrow we are going whale watching....

This was our third Whale Watch excursion this summer.  I guess the third time was the charm because we saw a ton (...I guess hundreds of tons) of whales this time out!

We went on the Boston Harbor Cruise Whale Watch in June and the New England Aquarium cruise in July. We only saw about three whales in total on the two outings.  Some of the folks at RainyDayMagazine claimed they were actually the same whales :-)  

This time we drove out to Provincetown and booked a cruise with Portuguese Princess Excursions.  We are hoping we don't see the same 3 whales we saw in Boston!

The Portuguese Princess folks actually arranged a full PTown Pass for us.  If you are going to visit Provincetown... we highly recommend taking advantage of this combined package!
