Cape Cod Pt. 5: Random Shots
I have quite a few shots that don’t have any specific category, or where there aren’t enough in a category to have a post dedicated to them…so here they are:
On Sunday night we went to see Harry Potter 7.2 at a drive-in theater in Wellfleet which was very cool! I had never been to a drive-in. There was a big screen (obviously, I suppose) and you tuned your car into a certain radio station to hear what was going on in the movie. The movie started at 10:20 PM (the earlier movie was Cars 2, and I was not about to sit through two hours of talking cars) and it was my second time seeing HP7.2, so I had a bit of trouble staying awake, but nonetheless it was a cool experience. Later in the week we went to a flea market which was held in the parking lot of the theater, so I got a daylight shot of the screen.
Cape Cod Pt. 4: Dune hike
On Tuesday, Kathryn and I decided to go letterboxing in Wellfleet, MA on a dune trail. Disclaimer: Never go on a dune hike on a hot sunny day - there is no shade and you will feel like you’re going to die.
I digress. Letterboxing, for those who don’t know, is akin to a treasure hunt for a small weatherproof container in which you find a stamp and a logbook - you sign the logbook, and if you are an avid letterboxer, you will have your own logbook which you stamp at each letterbox you find.
The trail was 1.8 miles each way, but getting lost for a bit, combined with hiking through sand which slows you down to about half normal pace, it was a very, very long trek. It was also very pretty though, despite its sunny-day drawbacks.
The first thing we saw was actually wierdly interesting. As we were walking, we noticed our impeccable view was blemished by a giant, ugly, new-looking house. Obviously the wealthy owners did not care about anything but their own view. However, disheartened hikers had an interesting way of protest…see below:
“Abominable House: Tax the Rich!” Indeed, if you look up “Abominable House Wellfleet” on Google maps, several photos of this house come up. I wonder if the owners know about it? Judging by the house, they probably don’t get out hiking much - the house looks virtually unlived in! Tax the rich, my friend, tax the rich.
Cape Cod Pt. 1: Truro Beach House
I just got back from a week long trip at Cape Cod. My parents rented a cabin and my friends Kathryn and Liz each came for a bit of the week to visit the Cape with me.
We stayed in North Truro, near Provincetown.
The beach house we stayed in was at Pilgrim Beach Village. We’ve stayed there five times including this stay, since I was little. Here are photos from the cottage and the beach in front of it:
