And then there's Provincetown....more cape cod kookiness
Isn't that a lovely picture?? Imagine living here and seeing this daily.
What we didn't know was a parade was just finishing, clogging the streets with floats and people. People in costume and people in their unusual daily attire. The parade/festival is "Carnival" and the theme was "back to the 80's"
We arrived just after the parade was over. The one main street was so crowded of people milling around we were stuck til a man in a big pink dress and even bigger blond wig directed people out of our way.
He stuck his head in the car and said, " I like what you've done with your float... very....family"
We went in a couple stores...
The first one is Mount St. Helens eruption. The next is the Valdez oil spill. The next is Chernobyl radiation leak. The last one... guess...red?
the tylenol poisoning.
We also saw these colorful characters
I was sorry not to see Cher or Hillary or Andy Cohen. The traffic was hideous trying to leave the Cape later that night but we made it back to the hotel so we could go to Plymouth the next day and see something historical.
We were only there three days but it was a big change and reminded us there is not only a big country out there to experience, but a big world. No need to get locked into a rut here... gotta keep our options open.
A change was what we needed. Cape Cod, Plymouth, then Newport Rhode Island.
