Sundays in My City

Unknown Mami

Yesterday my mom, B and her friend A and I went to....
Ptown is the tip of Cape Cod. If you look at Cape Cod as an arm, Ptown is the hand, Chatham is the elbow and Falmouth is the armpit. (Sorry Falmouth). We went to Race Point Beach first.



As you can tell, it was a little windy and chilly, but beautiful nonetheless. We finally found the base of the Pilgrim Monument (trust me, we drove around and around). In the summer season you can climb to the top. We had to be satisfied with a picture from the bottom.
Provincetown's streets are very narrow. In the summertime, this street is hopping with people.

This is a buoy, lobster pot bench.

B and A having a whale of a time!

The fishing industry is very big in Ptown. The boats are mostly draggers and trawlers. I liked how this one was called Blue Skies, because it was a very blue sky day!

This is a warehouse on a dock that has pictures of women who have been important to the fishing industry.


B took a picture of me, sitting on the newest bench in town.

There you have it: a winter's tour of Ptown. I promise to come back in the summer and show you the difference!

Love P-town. Most of the time, we hang out on the flabby, underside of the upper arm. You know, Hyannisport.

Didn't we have a wonderful adventure? You never got me one of those fish you were sitting on, however. Such a beautiful day! Nana

Other than the color of the sand, Ptown looks a lot like my little harbor town. It's crazy around here in the summer too.

You captured a gorgeous day!

Love the pictures! I attended college for a couple years in Boston. I loved going back home with a friend who was from the Cape. I remember the first time I saw it snowing on the beach, and thought it was so incredibly beautiful! Being from South Dakota, and only having spent time on beaches in warmer climates, it was a breath taking sight! :)

Re: Justine's word verification - one time mine was "panties". I nearly had to close the comment window and start over.

I love the building with the pictures of the women on it and I am taken with the beautiful blue skies.

You make a lovely bench model.

Hi! First time in your blog came over from Suburban Scrawl :)

Great picture tour! Always wanted to visit Ptown! It's nice to see a beach (even cold and chilly one) over snow! :)

Fabulous pics of Ptown! I have never been in winter.

I found your blog through Tales of The Toll House Cookie. I love finding other New England blogs! I am now following yours. Hope you can visit mine!
