Provincetown Whale Watch
My best friend Kathy and I decided to spend a day on a whale watch out of Provincetown. She is the only friend I have who can and will take a day off in the middle of the week, to do something touristy like this! I made a lunch to bring with us; ham and cheese sandwiches, crackers, grapes, and le Oreos for dessert. Just a couple of hicks pretending to be tourists on the Cape. Even though she has lived on the Cape for more than 30 years, she had never been on a WW, so I , being the vetran of sorts (this was my third trip), led the way. We made the 12:30 boat (pictured above) and settled up near the bow of the boat on the port side. We had gorgeous weather, calm seas and this is some of what we saw...
Provincetown is a hub of activity.... fishing, cruises, art, shops, people watching, museums... the place bursts at the seams in the summer.
The Pilgrim Monument is one of the most recognizable structures on the Cape.
The Lobster Pot has some great seafood, and if you want to do carryout, they even have FROZEN Clam Chowder that you can take with you to heat and eat at another time.
On Tuesday, February 10th, 1998 this is what Provincetown looked like. Click here for the full story.
It was a great day, and we both decided we'd have to do it again before the season ends.
