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!

  1. Thanks for sharing your grey day on the Cape. ;-)

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