Huge Cruise Ship In Provincetown On Cape Cod!

This huge cruise ship dwarfed everything else in Provincetown Harbor. I could see it as we drove over the causeway the other day and was it big! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I like the 2nd photograph that shows the coastline of Provincetown with Pilgrim Monument in the background and the size of that massive ship.

 

Flag Of Honor At Hemenway Landing On Cape Cod.

There is a new “Flag of Honor”  flying over the bench and memorial statue at Hemenway Landing honoring a man from Eastham who died on 9/11.

“The ‘Flag Of Honor’ has been created with the sincerest intentions of honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. This flag includes the names of everyone who perished on 9/11: on all of the planes, at Shanksville, PA, the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.”

May you find peace and love and a few minutes today to honor all those who died on 9/11 and their families.

Have You Seen the New Exit Numbers On Route 6 On Cape Cod?

I’d been coming to Cape Cod since high school and always knew that Nauset Beach and Orleans was Exit 12. Easy to remember… the exits start at 1 at the bridge and go to 12. Not any more. (Click on blog link to see other photos.)

Now the numbers correspond with how many miles the exit is from the Rhode Island border. I have read about the reason why being funding from the federal government but the exits are just weird. One exit is 85 and the next one is 89.  And, if you look closely, there is  a green mile marker ever .2 miles all along the entire highway.

So, if you’re planning a trip to the Cape, be prepared to be a bit disoriented as all of the exit signs have changed.

Eastham Chamber Of Commerce Is A Great Resource On Cape Cod!

I was so excited when I picked up  “Eastham 2020,”  a booklet published each summer by the Eastham Chamber of Commerce, and saw that one of my kayaking photographs was used on their “Things To Do…To The Beach” page. How cool is that? (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

Eastham 2020  is a wonderful resource  which includes everything that you might want to know if you are visiting Eastham: accommodations,  restaurants, shopping, beaches, biking trails, hiking trails, historic sites, maps, activities, etc. The list goes on and on. You can find the booklet in many locations around town.

Thank you, Jim. It was such a treat  to see my photograph included in Eastham 2020!
