Not my favorite place on Cape Cod (Provincetown) – August 2014

Provincetown1
Too crowded up there. Driving from Orleans, even on a clear day, is slow. That said, as you approach the dunes on the east side, it’s really nice. The Pilgrim Monument guides the way into the small art and fishing town, known for its in your face gay identity. I’m not a big fan of the crowded streets and the plethora of galleries or tourist shops that just so happen to have dildos, restraints and leather pieces hanging from the wall. The ostentatious ethos of Provincetown is a type of elitism. It’s quite tacky. But the monument and the streets and buildings are gorgeous. I can understand why writers and painters make it there home.
