After watching the bunny for a while, we jumped into the car and made our way back to Nauset Beach.
We quickly found out that when you arrive at the ocean, and this is the extent of the swimming, it is a sign. The bad weather the previous evening did a really good job of bringing in lots of very fresh, very cold water to the beach. Brrrr!
We stayed at the beach until around 1:00, enjoying the beautiful weather, and Joern, brave enough to go for a swim.
Afterwards, we headed out to north, into the arm of the Cape, to Truro Vineyards.
Unfortunately, we missed the last tour by about 30 minutes, but we were able to do a wine tasting.
The tasting was very informative, and we got to try every wine they offer. Truro Vineyards had some delicious wine, but we decided we couldn't purchase very much, so we purchased two wines that were very unique. We purchased a Sauvignon Blanc, because it seemed to be the perfect summer wine. We also purchased a Cranberry Red, which was a delicious red, with a hint of cranberry. For this New England Thanksgiving lover, the Cranberry Red will definately make its way into our Thanksgiving enjoyment this upcoming year!
We then drove around for a while, taking the back roads up towards Provincetown.
After we got to P-town, we went to the Whydah Pirate Museum. Yeah, Pirate Museum. It doesn't seem very me, but I went there last time I was in the Cape, with my pirate-loving cousin, Elizabeth. It turns out that the museum isn't as much a pirate museum, as it is a museum devoted to the Whydah, a ship that had been captured in 1717, by "Black Sam" Bellamy and a host of other pirates. The ship became the flagship of Bellamy and his men. It wrecked off the coast of Cape Cod. The museum focuses on the history of the ship, as well as pirate-life in the 1700s. One visit, and you have an entirely new understanding of pirates of the time.
After our visit to the museum, it was dinner-time. It was so enjoyable to sit on the deck overlooking Provincetown Harbor.
