Provincetown Sites

This morning I woke to a beautiful sunny day and thought it would be a perfect time for the wife and I to take a drive to Provincetown and spend the day just taking it easy while checking out some of the great sites around the area. We decided to check out the dunes and the moors area's rather than go right downtown because we planned to spend the day in P-Town another time. The weather and the time of the year could not have been any better for checking these places out. I hope everyone who sees the Pictures will enjoy them as much as I do . If you ever get a chance to come to Provincetown, try and make a point of seeing as much as you can. If you want to check out the Dunes and have a good time and find out the history of them at the same time, they have Art's Dune tours that leaves about every hour and takes about 90 minutes. You can find out everything you may need to know about it by clicking on the Title on top of the page (--> Provincetown Sites ). If you decide to go to the moors you can find it by checking out a map or just ask someone in the area. It is a site really worth seeing. My wife and I are going to do a lot more on Provincetown thru out the coming months and I hope everyone will be able to enjoy the posts when we complete them. In the mean time, have a great visit and take care.

Bass River Sports World

Now that spring is here, the season is about to begin. I know a great place to tell everyone about where you can a really good time and spend the day with your family. There is a variety of things to choose from. You can try out the Golf driving range, or Soccer, Softball,and Baseball Cages, they also have in line Skating and Skateboarding, and of course the Adventure mini Golf Course is a really good way to have fun. There is a Papa Gino's right in front of the parking lot for those who may want to have lunch or even dinner. I recommend when you are in the South Yarmouth area to stop by and see for yourself. It is very easy to find, off of RT 28. I know when the weather during the day isn't that great for a day at the beach, it is always good to have a place to go and Bass River Sports World is one of the few that are at the top of my list. I hope you will have a great time when you visit Cape Cod and get a chance to enjoy everything you can.

Bass Hole Boardwalk

Today I decided to go to a place called the Bass Hole Boardwalk for a long walk to exercise and breathe some good fresh ocean air. My fiancee showed me this beautiful place a few years ago and I have been coming here ever since. For those who don't know were it is located, you can find it in the town of Yarmouthport off of Rt. 6A to Grey's beach. The view of the water and marsh land together is really a site to see. The boardwalk is 868 Ft. long and if you walk up and back three times it will equal one mile. Also when you look down into the water you can see small fish and some fiddler and horseshoe crab. I took a few pictures so you could get some idea of just how great the view is. It's a good place to take the whole family for the day. There is a large picnic area and a trail to explorer were you may see the Osprey nesting in the large nest in the middle of the marsh. I consider this to be a place were you can capture a view with an everlasting memory. It is a must see when you are in the area.

Scargo Lake

We have a lot of visitors who come to Cape Cod and never get to see some of the very special views like the one of Scargo lake in the town of Dennis. To get the best view, you have to go to Scargo tower and climb to the top and you will find it breathtaking. I know I did. If not from the area, it can be quite hard to find. I have a link setup at the top of the page. Just click on the --> Scargo Lake Title and you will get all the information you need from the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce webpage. Go to the town of Dennis, then to attractions and sites. There is also a tale about the lake from ages past. Once there was an indian Princess from the Bobuset tribe. One day she was walking and saw a young brave. When they first met, they fell in love. To show his feelings, the young brave hollowed out a pumpkin and filled it with water. He then put four fish inside and gave it to the Princess. He told her he had to go on a journey and would return before the fish were fully grown. The Princess loved her gift so much, she hollowed out a small pond in a field and returned each day. As the fish grew, the time apart from the young brave made her love start to fade. Then one morning she arrived at the small pond and found the pond was drying up from the hot summer weather. Three of the fish had died. She then cried for a long time and her tears are what kept the fourth fish alive. As the days went by, she grew sadder. Her father, who is the chief of the tribe, wanted to do something to make her happy again. He called his braves into a meeting and told them to shoot an arrow into the air. Wherever it landed, they would mark some boundaries and all the squaws, using large clam shells for shovels, dug a hole within the boundries. In a very short time, the rains came and filled it in. The fish seemed to survive in the lake and this made the Princess happy again. Now she could continue to wait for her lover. And, as he promised, he appeared before the fish had fully grown. Within the next few days, they were married and lived happily ever after and made Scargo lake their home. And some people say descendants of the fish are still swimming there. I really hope you enjoy the view of the lake if you have a chance to see it.

Martha's Vineyard

Martha's Vineyard is a 100 sq.mile island and the only way to get there is by plane or by boat. Most visitors in Hyannis take the Hi-Line Ferry out of Hyannis harbor or they can choose to fly using Cape Air from the Cape Cod airport . For visitors in the Falmouth area you can take the ferry from Falmouth. I perfer taking the ferry myself because it is a lot of fun and the site of the land from the water is nice to see. You have two choices of ferry's the photo on the right is the fast ferry and it only takes 55 mins. from time of departure to arrival. The photo on the bottom left is the regular ferry and it takes about 1hr. 45mins. I have the schedules for times of departure and arrival along with a lot more information for anyone who may want to know more, all you have to do is click on the page title --> Martha's Vineyard located on the top of the page and the Hi-Line Ferry schedule will come up. When you do get to the island you can check out all the shops and resturants. If you have time to see some really good sites take the tour bus to the other side of the island to a must see spot called Gay Head. The photo on the top is just a small part of the beauty and another part is you being there to share it. If you can only go to the island for a day trip it is best to leave early so you can make it an all day affair that way you can get to see as much as you can. I really think everyone will enjoy the experience.

West Yarmouth

We got our third snow storm yesterday afternoon and evening which amounted to about 8 to 9 inches. I hope it will be our last one for the year but one will never know about New England weather. Like the old saying that goes (if you don't like the weather just wait a minute). The pictures are of my deck and backyard I find a fresh coating of snow makes a good photo. I am going to do my next blogs on different towns and must see places of interest also I intend doing articles about Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Islands and the Ferry's that take you over to them, my reason for this it to make it easy and informative for people that have never experienced going over to the islands.
