Murdo Girl…Cape Cod..Provincetown

When you’re on an RV trip, sometimes you have to shoot from the hip. There is virtually no way you can adhere to a schedule, and if you get thrown by an interruption or a change in plans, then RV Travel is not for you.

After our long day, and our eight mile walk through Boston Common and beyond, Kip and I were a little slow getting going yesterday morning. We had intended to drive to New York, but there was an issue…I wanted to see Cape Cod, which is only about forty miles from the Boston/Cape Cod KOA where we were staying. We decided to walk down to the office and pay for another day. It was a good plan.

Unfortunately, there was no room at the inn. They had booked the entire park for the whole week-end. We hurried back to the RV and got everything ready to go before the eleven o’clock check-out time. Then we headed for Cape Cod.

I had taken a few minutes to check online for a reasonably priced RV park that hadn’t closed for the season. I found a couple that looked like they would work, so we headed down the road without calling either of them. Why? Well, because we didn’t know how much time we wanted to spend there. I had been terribly disappointed the night before, when while doing some research on a TV show that had made me fall in love with Cape Cod, I discovered it had been filmed in Mendicino.  Cabot Cove was in California of all things. The entire ‘Murder She Wrote’ series was 3000 miles from the truth!

Anyway it all worked out!

In the last pic, we were turning into Sweetwater Forest RV Park in Brewster, MA. I forgot to take pictures when we got here, but I will later this morning. It’s next to a horse ranch and the off season rates aren’t bad at all.

After we got settled in, we put the dogs in the Jeep and drove to Provincetown. It was just like I had pictured the little town of Cabot Cove would look like.

Pilgrim Monument was built in 1910 to commemorate the first Pilgrim’s landfall in 1620 and the signing of the Mayflower Compact in Privincetown Harbor.

The downtown area has numerous quaint bed and breakfasts. I can imagine Provincetown is covered up with visitors in the spring and summer.

I wish I had captured more of the neighborhood homes. The streets are very narrow and the town is hilly. The homes are all two story and almost all of them have the New England style shake siding. I love them!

I was trying to show the picures of the weathered old women painted on the side of the building in the distance.

Below are pictures of the sand dunes.

I can’t wait to see what today brings! Happy Saturday!

    I have stayed in the house in Mendocino where “Murder She Wrote” was filmed.

        We lived in Fortuna, near Eureka for a year and went to Cape Mendocino to see the rugged beach, but I’m not even sure where Mendocino is. I’ll look it up. It must be charming if it’s like Cabot Cove.

    Keep them coming. Looks a bit chilly. Ken likes not planning and just going wherever you like, no set schedule.
