  • O'nut does Boston and Provincetown - a TR



    Our first stop after landing was Kowloon Restaurant in Saugus (just north of Boston, where Brian grew up and where his folks live).















    More to come....

    Re: O'nut does Boston and Provincetown - a TR

    Here we are in Provincetown (aka P-town).



    The main landmark in P-town is the Pilgrim Monument (remember, the Pilgrims first landed here in P-town, where they wrote the Mayflower Compact).



    You can climb up to the top and it offers beautiful views. Here’s the view looking up from the bottom.



    Along the way up are stones with cites names from around the country that have donated to the tower, but mostly they are cities in Massachusetts. Here’s our proud Saugonian in front of his cities stone.



    The following shots are taken from the top in 4 directions. Here’s south. In front is part of P-town, the land in the far distance is Cape Cod and that tip of land extending from the right to left, is the very tippy tip of Cape Cod just off-shore from P-town.



    Looking east we have more of P-town and the Cape, with the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.



    Looking north.



    Looking west. Look closely and you can see “mainland” Massachusetts.



    Here’s a shot of Boston from the tower (ya gotta look REALLY closely, but you can see the skyscrapers there 43 miles away as a crow flys).



    The view looking down the tower from the top.

      Cool Cape Cod lighthouse.



      Me contemplating life, looking out over Cape Cod Bay.



      Salt marsh.



      Sign in a storefront window. It made me chuckle.



      A couple cool view of the Monument.





      Remains of a pier from "back in the day". P-town was a huge whaling town and have LOTS of piers, many of which remain, but look like this. Kinda cool, yet ghostly.

        The Atlantic House. http://www.ahouse.com/history.html It’s been here since the late 1700’s and it is said to be the oldest gay bar in the country. Apparently Judy Garland visited once, binged, then stumbled down Commercial Street with a bevy of gay men following her like she was the Messiah :lol: Anyway here’s a day and night shot (day shot with Brian and Jake).




        The Lobster Pot.



        The Pilgrim Monument at night (sorry, it's a bit blurry, as was I :lol: ).

                  Great pictures so far can't wait to see more! Thanks for showing the inside of the Pilgrim Monument, we go to P-town at least once a year and have never climbed it. Next month I will check it out when I am there. Great that you pointed out that the Pilgrims landed in P-town first before stepping foot on Plymouth Rock, so many people don't know about that.

                    Thanks for sharing the pix. Keep 'im coming.

                    Peace,

                              My final installment.


                              http://www.mews.com/



                              One of the things they are known for, is having well over 200 different kinds of vodka. The cover of the vodka menu is naughty.



                              I was in heaven looking at the vodka menu (and a little amazed as well).



                              Our delicious (and huge) martinis. Very potent I might add, especially on an empty tummy. I chose a vodka made in Sweden with water from a glacial lake. I think it was called Thor Vodka, or something like that. Quite smooth.







                              Time for Cape Cods on Cape Cod. Cheers to a delicious dinner and to a fantastic place to celebrate an anniversary! If you get to P-town, check out this place. The food and drinks were fabulous, and the entire wait staff were nothing short of awesome.





                              And this my friends, is where I will wrap up this TR. Thank you for reading, and good day.
