I recently had a working vacation on Cape Cod. I worked a few hours a day, and then got to enjoy the area, the restaurants, the shops and the culture.
The first day I went to Scargo Tower in Dennis...
…which overlooks Scargo Lake and the Cape Cod Bay in the distance:
I had dinner in Sandwich, overlooking the Cape Cod Canal and the Sagamore Bridge:
I then spent 2 weeks in Provincetown and this was my morning walk to my beach:
The sunrises were warm and bright each day….
…and I got to enjoy breakfast on the quiet beach:
I even got to enjoy a few "Happy Hours" on the beach:
As well as a few in the local restaurants!
The restaurants were very good...
…and I spent an afternoon at the local winery:
I gave my husband a tour of PTown. Here he is on the buoy bench on the MacMillan pier:
My favorite time on the beach is walking at low tide…
…there is always something to find!
…and the boats are all grounded in the sand!
This was my view everyday from work (I worked as a caretaker for an elderly couple and they were staying at a waterfront cottage) :
The sunsets were amazing ...
Race Point Beach:
Herring Cove Beach:
But the best part of Provincetown is its shops, art galleries and people!
I was there during Carnival week and there was always entertainment….
…a wonderful parade...
…with a Candyland theme…
..the businesses and inns were decorated with candy...
...and so were the homes….
…and even the people...
…and I even had my pic taken with a few festive parade participants:
This is the very tip of the Cape:
It was a great way to mix working and vacationing and a perfect place to do it!!
