Jul 14-21, 2017 Cape Cod, Massachussetts

New state!!! Staying at Bay View Campground in Bourne, MA. Large park with pool and lots of activities. Had to stay in one site for one night and move to another for the remaining 6 days... it was the only way to stay in the area. All parks are full this time of year...
  

  

The people that work at this park drive their golf carts like maniacs... unfortunately, a little girl darted out from behind a car and was hit by a golf cart... She is fine, just a few bruises... it reminds me of the guy we helped in Bucks Lake in California... Don't like this kind of excitement...


PROVINCE TOWN, MA
Took a long drive on Route 6A to Provincetown. This town is on the tip of Outer Cape. The drive is very nice with plenty of nice houses, art shops and restaurants. There is a state park and some great views although it was pretty overcast...
  




  

  




BOSTON, MA
Only an hour north is Boston. Decided to visit on Sunday to avoid all the traffic during the week. Such a nice city with its old structures and charm...  Visited "The Commons" which is Boston's version of Central Park in NYC, except a lot smaller.
  



Next to the Commons is the State Capitol... very nice!


  



The Old State House
  




Boston Harbor
  

So many neat buildings...
  

  

  

And of course... Cheers...



FALMOUTH, MA
Just down the road from us is the town of Falmouth. Cute little town with shops and restaurants. Got to try "Lobster Ice Cream"... wow! What an experience!!! It's regular butter flavored ice cream with lobster pieces frozen in the ice cream.  It tastes good when you eat it, but then the lobster taste sticks with you all day... Glad we tried it... never again!!!
Great looking lighthouse that is run by the Coast Guard...
  

  

  

  

HYANNIS PORT, MA
Just down the road from Falmouth is Hyannis/ Hyannis Port. This is a lot more crowded and more of a business atmosphere... The Port area is nice...
  



The cape in general is a lot more laid-back than we thought and not as touristy as many other places. It has more of a small old town atmosphere with a big traffic problem... we will definitely come back!!!
