Thursday’s long journey of a ferry-train-ferry ride brought me to Provincetown in Cape Cod, to spend some time with my mom and step mom, and enjoy some fantastic oysters and ocean views.
Thursdays journey may have been long and arduous, consisting of a long drive from Southampton to Orient Point, a ferry ride from there to New London, an amtrak train from there to Boston, and another ferry from there to Provincetown, but it was well worth it. The gorgeous views from the ferries made the journey incredibly enjoyable, and the warm welcome from my mom and step mom Debra reminded me that I was exactly where I wanted to be for the next few days.
After an exhausting day of travel, I was grateful for Debra to have made an incredible dinner of barbecue chicken and grilled veggies, and then for a soft bed and a long sleep. The next day, my first day in Provincetown, was spent with a visit to the bay beach, just across the street from where my mom and Debra are staying. I spend the afternoon chilling out with my mom and Rocco, who has now officially become a beach dog. Early Thursday evening, Debra and I took a quick trip for cocktails and raw oysters fresh from Wellfleet. Wellfleet is a super cute area just two towns over on the cape, and known for some of the best oysters in the world. I’m quite grateful to have a fellow conspirator in raw oyster eating in Deb, and it’s become something I look forward to each summer on these trips to P-town.
The rest of our evening was spent with a trip down Commercial Street – the main drag through Provincetown – since summer Friday nights are “gallery walks.” There’s a huge art scene in Provincetown, and these Friday nights are an awesome opportunity to view hundreds of pieces of artwork, as well as snack on wine and cheese.
Stay tuned for more Provincetown adventures and of course more fresh seafood!
