Truro Vineyards, Cape Cod

Last Thursday was a grey day on Cape Cod so we drove to the end of the Cape and visited the Truro Winery:


The gift shop is housed in a lovely old colonial:





The wine tasting was held out in the back yard, overlooking the vineyards:

The winery bottles some of their wine a bottle shaped like a lighthouse!





And I fell in love with this sign:


Provincetown, the very last town on the Cape, is a quaint fishing town, with lots of shops selling local art and common seaside souvenirs.  


We had lunch at the famous Lobster Pot, overlooking the pier - you can see the lighthouse in the back center of the photo:


The Lobster Pot serves the BEST Bloody Marys - adorned with an olive, lemon, lime and a jalapeno pepper!


This is the Nauset Lighthouse....


...and the Three Sisters Lighthouses - which have been moved back from the sea due to erosion of the dunes:


 I was exciting to see seals at Marconi Station Beach - but the grey day made it difficult to get a good photo! 


It was a busy day, loaded with lots of adventures, and a great way to spend a "grey" day on Cape Cod!

  2. Beautiful, rugged Atlantic coast vistas. Reminds me of the summer during college that I spent living on Nantucket Island. Cherry Kay
