As much as I love exploring new destinations on the road, one of my favorite activities is to return again and again to favorites spots so I can discover something new, a hidden gem that I had never noticed until a new trip finally reveals it to me. Since moving to Massachusetts almost a year ago, I have made numerous trips to Cape Cod, Massachusetts, exploring much of National Seashore Park and Provincetown. Another trip to the cape this past weekend, intended originally to show some of my favorite sites to a special guest, instead turned into an unexpected and delightful discovery.
With my girlfriend in town to visit this weekend, we had plans to explore Cape Cod, as she had never seen it. The day included a leisurely breakfast at a favorite restaurant, scenic views of dunes and lighthouses, and then two fascinating discoveries in a public library in Provincetown. Rather than my usual narrative, however, I thought to turn this post into a photo essay and let the pictures tell the tale.
Cape Cod continues to be one of my favorite locations to visit in New England. This past Saturday was a beautiful winter day on one of the most rugged and scenic seascapes in North America. National Seashore State Park is open year round and is free to the public during the off season (although if you visit during the winter, bundle up!). The Provincetown Public Library is also free of charge, and is open seven days a week. I hope you enjoyed this brief photo essay, and thank you for coming along on another journey down the open road ahead!
