Yesterday was another blistering day up here in New England so we decided to do a lot of touring from the AIR-CONDITIONED truck and stop whenever we saw something worth exploring. Mummy is pretty good by now at snapping photos from a fast moving vehicle (because Daddy isn’t too keen to slow down). We found a really nice local spot to eat called “KATE’S SEAFOOD” and we were able to eat at a picnic table in the shade. We had sooooo many people coming by to visit and ask all about us. Katie was telling everyone that the place was NAMED AFTER HER, OMGOSH she lies!!! Our parents said the lunch was great but we got NONE of the fried shrimp, fish sandwich or onion rings… but it DID SMELL GREAT! After lunch, we drove through darling little towns where Mummy ooooh’d and ahhhh’d over the quaint houses and windmills scattered about.
As we got closer and closer to our destination of Provincetown, a very colorful shop appeared on our left! WHAT IN THE WORLD??? It turned out to be the BIGGEST STORE of inflatable pool floats that you will ever see in your life! They were all over the yard, the parking lot, and even on the ROOF! Whatever kind of pool float you want is sold in that store. Do you want a flamingo float? They’ve got it! An elephant? Yep… I saw one of those! A pineapple? You betcha! Mummy wanted to stop and look around and Daddy said no, we don’t have any room for a FLOAT! DARN!!! I really DID want that elephant float!!!
We got into Provincetown and WOWZA that is one PARTYING PLACE!!! Lots and lots of people in the streets, sort of like New Orleans. Lots of places to eat and lots of souvenir shops. We stopped to take our picture in front of a HUGE SHARK because sharks are PLENTIFUL in the waters around here, so we will be mindful to stay out of the water after seeing this! YIKES.
Our trip here would not be complete without stopping off at the OFFICIAL MONUMENT where the TRUE LANDING of the “Mayflower” is said to have occurred… here in Provincetown, NOT in Plymouth. Soooo, now, no matter WHICH STORY is correct, we can say that WE 4 yorkies, stood at the site of the first landing of the “Mayflower.”
It was getting late and was time to head back to the YORKIE EXPRESS, but Mummy wanted to drive through Hyannis Port and see if she could catch a glimpse of the Kennedy Compound that is located there. She looked up the address and set it into the GPS system and off we went. It was a lovely drive but as we reached the site, we were met with a large wooden fence that surrounded a large area… perhaps the Kennedy Compound??? but we couldn’t get close enough to tell. Daddy wanted to investigate and it was at this critical point… after driving ALL THIS WAY… that Tulip decided she had to potty and she had to go RIGHT THEN!!! The street we were on was a teeny tiny little street and we are driving a MONSTER TRUCK, so turning around was not an easy task. To top it off, we were in a residential neighborhood and you can’t just PULL OVER and let your dog POTTY in some billionaire’s yard for gosh sakes! Tulip was yelping badly from her Sleepy Pod and Daddy wanted to just let her go in someone’s front yard and Mummy was saying NOOOOO and finally up ahead they saw the entrance to a RESIDENTS ONLY BEACH PARKING AREA. Daddy whipped in and pulled Tulip out and she did a HUGE POOP RIGHT THERE in the sandy parking lot! (Don’t worry, he made sure to pick it up in a poop bag.) Mummy decided to take ALL OF US OUT and let us go potty before heading back. So… now we can say, we all went potty right down the street from the Kennedy house. Maybe it wasn’t in their back yard, but it was pretty dang close! I think that was the HIGHLIGHT of our day! ???
And that was it… our trip out to Cape Cod. What a super fun adventure. We had a late dinner and then fell fast asleep. Mummy and Daddy stayed up to watch TV… afterall, this week is SHARK WEEK! ?
