Colors of Provincetown in the spring....

If you have been lucky enough to visit Provincetown you know it is a magical town at the tip of the Cape. It is quintessentially quaint and arty; an old school traditional Cape Cod fishing village and a smart, hip community full of people who value the arts and good food. I visit as often as I can but I especially love this time of year.
Buildings are getting fresh paint, radios are blaring, dogs are lying in the sun and people are greeting each other out on the street after a long, cold winter indoors listening to the wild wind swoosh in from the sea.
It is a place full of color and nautical items repurposed.
An anchor may weigh in as a sign holder....
A brass lobster may serve as a door knocker....
Stones may be gathered and arranged in an old wagon...
Long rambling buildings may cover the docks....
and everywhere you look there are sights to please your eyes...

Every time I go I see new things, smell and taste new foods and feel grateful to live in such a beautiful place...

My family and I really needed a time out from our work and a friend suggested we go to Cape Cod. When we arrived on Cape Cod, I was surprised that it was a serene place, but there were a lot of fun things to do on Cape Cod! We went sailing in Hyannis Harbor on a sailboat and then we went to Provincetown to watch whales do their thing. The experience was just plain awesome, we all feel energized when we got back to our house.
