Cape Cod

From Maine we drove through Boston directly to Cape Cod, Massachusetts and stayed some time with friends from us, who we originally know from Switzerland and which live in both places, Switzerland and Cape Cod USA. Not a bad choice though πŸ˜‰

In Cape Cod we first visited Provincetown. A fun little town, with beautiful beaches around it, which is famous for their LBGT & art community:Cape Cod-2Cape Cod-3Cape Cod-4Provincetown, Cape CodProvincetown, Cape CodProvincetown, Cape CodProvincetown, Cape CodProvincetown, Cape CodCape Cod-6Cape Cod-5

As we stayed in Nickerson State Park, we also did some hikes in the park, which was duly worth it:

Then we visited the posh town ofΒ Chatham in Cape Cod, with its huge amazing beaches:Chatham, Cape CodChatham, Cape CodChatham, Cape CodChatham, Cape CodChatham, Cape CodChatham, Cape CodChatham, Cape CodChatham, Cape Cod

The second part of our Cape Cod visit, we stayed at our friends house. An amazing New England house wonderfully placed in the middle of nowhere directly at the ocean, with an awesome view on it. The entrance was as big, that we could park our RV nicely there. And they grilled real US beef and fish for us, offered good wines and kept Eyra company.. Β how can life be better?

We had the chance, that the Cranberry festival was on at the time we stayed there, so our friends took us there. To get there we took the famous yellow school buses and actually looked like a little school travel group πŸ˜‚:

When we got there, we couldn’t believe our eyes. We never saw a cranberry field like this! And learned how they harvest cranberries: They water the field, drive through with a machine to loosen the berries from the plant and vacuum the berries to another machine where they get washed and directly loaded into a truck to get to the production place. To eat them directly fresh, they’re very sour and bitter at the same time. This is why you’ll find them always dried and sweetened to buy in the grocery shops:

We’d like to thank C. and A. for everything!

In the meantime, we drove further South, as it gets colder and colder up in the North, steering around the big city of New York, further down to Washington DC.

  1. Beautiful pics: quaint seaside villages, lazy beaches, walks & trails. Loved the pics of Dominik & Eyra in that small blue summer chair & Sara’s face after eating a sauer cranberry. The Three on the Road enjoying the last hazy days of summer & the beginning of Fall. 🐝. 🍁
