Trip Report Part 4 Cape Cod

Part 1 Lincoln, NH (White Mountains)

Part 2 Ashland, NH (Lakes Region)

Part 3 Boston

Part 4 Cape Cod

Wednesday June 26: We left around 9 am from the Comfort Inn in Plymouth. My wife and I were ready to go, but our 2 grown daughters and their husbands did not get in until late driving from a night game at Fenway.

We drove to the Park Service Salt Pond Visitor Center. The ranger at the desk was very helpful planning our day on the Cape. From there was a short drive to the tram parking area for Coast Guard Beach. We took the tram down to the beach and walked the beach to Nauset Beach. Then up the stairs and walked over to Nauset Light. And since we were there, we walked over to the Three Sisters Lighthouses.

We were all tired of walking in sand, so we walked back down the road to Coast Guard Beach. There were not many cars and a nice walk with some views of the ocean.

We took the tram back to the cars and drove to Provincetown.

We all were surprised and enjoyed the large sand dunes on the road to Provincetown. We had lunch at Lucky Dog and a short walk through town.

We arrived at Race Point Beach along with the rain. We were able to take a couple pictures and ran back to the car. So we went over to Herring Cove Beach. It was still pouring, but we did see a seal swimming by in the ocean.

So we decided to drive to Highland Light. We drove out of the rain and arrived before they closed. We took a few pictures and drove on to the next stop, Chatham Light.

Great views of the beach in the parking lot at Chatham light. We were about to leave when saw a man walking up the steps from the beach with a Acadia NP t-shirt. I was also wearing a Acadia NP t-shirt so a stopped to talk to him. He told us that there were many seals on the beach (about a mile south). Of course we had to go see them. But, by the time we walked out there, the seals

where out into the water.

When we got back to the parking lot, my daughter was talking to a couple about places to eat in the area. They recommended the Squire in Chatham. We went there but there was a half hour wait. So my wife and daughters walked across the street for fudge while I waited with the son-in-laws. Dinner was good at the Squire. After dinner was the hour drive back to Plymouth.

This was our first trip to Cape Cod and everyone enjoyed it. We are looking forward to coming and spending more time.

Hi bmoruzzi,

We did have a great time on the Cape. Weather was just a small part of our visit.

Hi Senior65,

I am glad you enjoyed my trip reports. We just had a small taste of the Cape the day we were there. We do want to see what more it holds for us.

You saw a good sample of the Cape. No matter how many times I see the Provincetown dunes, I'm always enthralled.

Chatham - another of my fave spots. What an excellent trip you planned out. I'm sure you could have spent days in any one of these locations and will be back to do just that. BTW - you've hit all of this in summer - another time you may want to try fall - fall foliage season in late Sep and early Oct is spectacular throughout New England as I'm sure you're aware.

Thanks for sharing
