Tripping to CAPE COD!

July 20, 2019

.

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! ?

Well… that’s good information to know about the floats! Maybe they are more for DECORATION! But we had a really fun and interesting day and managed to stay pretty cool by popping in and out of the air-conditioned truck!

One thing I like almost as much as a yeasty, lightly iced, ever so soft fresh donut, is a fried shrimp, onion rings and chips. Loved hearing about your close trip to the Kennedy compound. I mean, when you got to go, you just got to go. I am sure the Kennedy’s would all agree cuz I am pretty sure they got to go sometimes too. lol (Guessing your refined mannered Southern mom didn’t take that pic.)

Lololololol Mummy didn’t take a picture of us on our potty adventure near the Kennedy Compound because that would’ve been sort of embarrassing! ??? And FRIED SHRIMP with fried onion rings is just about one of Mummy’s really really favorite things in the whole wide world! ??❤️

Millie, what a great day and adventure. Darn it all, too bad you couldn’t see the house from the road, but a fun tale to remember. Your trips are always a delight. Onward to more fun.

Dear Sweet Airstream Yorkies,

This is absolutely the best day adventure yet. I just love reading every day. what you are up to.
We took our one and only Yorkie “Crickett” up the east coast in a luxury van once. She was just the best traveling buddy ever.
such a sweet and loyal friend. I just know how much fun you are to Mummy & Daddy.

Tulip can’t stop talking about it… just a few years ago she was an abused doggie, then thankfully RESCUED by Florida Yorkie Rescue, and now pooping down the street from the Kennedy Compound!!! From RAGS TO RICHES… sort of! ???

Oh so glad you all got to Cape Cod. I loved treading about the poop adventure near the Kennedy Compound. I hope to take my Coco for a visit to Hyannis I was there on a tour two years ago but I didn’t get to take my dog. None of us got as close as you all to the Compound. Great timing by Tulip.

We really wish we could have seen the actual house but we needed a BOAT to see if from the water.

Love the rags to Riches. Daddy really must slow down, think of all the things he’s missing.. I’m sure if the Kennedys knew you were coming ,They would welcome you with open arms. After all they love doggies?have fun.

That is one big shark!!!! you don’t want to be swimming any where near that!!! again you don’t get to try any food? oh my goodness! Maybe Mummy will get you something at Mr. Ed’s? He has yummie things for doggies!

We can’t wait to see Mr Ed’s! Mummy just found a tiny spoon for her tea with a little elephant on it… just in case she doesn’t find another one! And it represents the VERY FIRST ELEPHANT ever brought to America came to Salem!!!! Did you know that?

So glad you all went to Cape Cod. It’s a lovely place. Friends of ours live in Chatham. Barnstable is quite lovely as well. There is a beautiful shop called Harvest From Barnstable that make beautiful faux wreaths. I helped designed one for my home. It has gorgeous Hydrangeas and sea stars on it. The base of the wreath is made from local grasses and twigs that are preserved. Best thing is they can ship to your home. Oh my sweet Tulip. when you gotta go you gotta go Lol. I see you’re going to Salem next. Walking tours are… Read more »
