As it so happened, we had a run of absolutely gorgeous fall weather and we decided to take advantage of it and head up to Provincetown. First, I wanted to finally stop in Truro and get a picture of the row of cottages that I've seen from the highway every time I've gone up there. We got off the highway at the exit for Rte 6A, drove up a couple of miles where I was able to access the beach. It was soooo nice out.
Looking across the bay at Provincetown.
These are Days' Cottages and they have a very interesting history. HERE is their website; totally worth a look around. They were built in about 1930 and each one bears the name of a flower. There are about 22 in all. I could not have asked for better conditions to get this photo. Perfect weather and no people.
They are now on the market for sale, but not as the whole colony. You can buy individual cottages.
Hopped back in the car and headed up 6A which becomes Commercial Street as you get into PTown and that road is so narrow (and thankfully one way into town) that I kinda wished we'd gotten back on the highway. We parked at MacMillan Wharf and started walking around town.
Started on the wharf first.
This whale's name is Bubbles. How adorable is that?!
There were still quite a few people downtown considering it was an October weekday, but for the most part, it was very uncrowded by PTown's standards.
Of course we went in the famous Shop Therapy! Wish that truck wasn't in the way.
Shop Therapy used to be in a different location in town but I don't remember where it was. There was a huge mural on the side of it and I took a couple of pics in the early 90s when I was visiting. I didn't realize that the mural was carefully cut up and placed on the side of the new location. Some of the photos I took of them aren't family-friendly for my blog.
