The land of the fisherman and the artist. The battle ground of the locals vs the tourists. The beach and the bay and the kettle ponds. The longest stretch of national seashore which came about due to some famous fans like Thoreau.

Do you love it? Here's a place to discuss all things cape cod.

I will have to listen the only place on the Cape I have been to is the park on the hook, my partner on that particular trip would not pull into any of the towns along the way so all I saw saw a not so quaint road. The exception was of course the beautiful beach on the tip (cannot remember the name) one of the best I ever saw on the east coast.

ah P-Town, love the place when i can get all the way out there! Muchly fun and enjoyable even.
Took a great Whale watch from there with the little ones <when they were little o course> and it is a grand memory.
So is the pyschadelic place down there...wont go into it just, believe that I lost quite a bit of innocence just travelling from the front to the back.
Cape Cod...lovely place to visit, wouldnt want to live there though. Not that the locals shouldnt or anything, its just not my all the time cup of tea.

Would'nt that be some fun. I could see the real stuff not just the tourist stuff. I did walk around town quite a bit though, got to see the Red Socks and the main stuff. But I really wanted to see Ole Cape Cod and stop for dinner or something there.

wellfleet and truro are beautiful places, nice little small towns. art gallerys all over. the back roads are worth taking the time to explore, on both sides of the highway, don't hesitate to go down a dirt road at all, you'd be surprised what you'd find there.
the back road from wellfleet to truro is a trip, if you you know your way around.

the beach was prob race point or herring cove no doubt Joanne.

It was 1985 I think, a long time ago. The main thing I remember was the beatiful sunset, we got there late. And the cute little cabins, would loved to have stayed there, on the Cape, for at least a week.

stained glass, yes. I don't think they ever did it out of their house. The store used to be in the strip-mall where Ben and Jerry's is. Now it's across fromm Ace Hardware (chocolate sparrow, roll-up, fairway, etc)
