Back to the Casa from Provincetown!!!



Well, The Mistress is very rested, massaged and I do believe, more limber than ever after my real last vacation for this summer! I finally went to check out the hub bub with the Lad and crew, and what a blast!!! Why I didn't go to wonderful P-Town before I'll never know! I arrived back to the Casa du Borghese very late Monday and took a couple days to de compress from all the drinking and sex, opps, I meant dancing and sightseeing!!!!! And it was also one of P-Towns most packed weeks, Carnival Week, complete with activities for everyone all week. I did so much I could post something almost everyday for over a week, but I will put it in just this post, as you can imagine, my recollect was a haze anyway!!! The attractions of P-town are many —home of Pilgrim roots, historic artist and writer communities, many miles of unspoiled Cape Cod Seashore, more than 50 B&Bs and bars and clubs, an ever-growing dining scene, and a sizable gay population that fosters a free and easy vibe—are numerous, and go way beyond a day at the beach and a night of seafood dinners. I really took as much in as I could. Topping the list of attractions here is a simple stroll along lively Commercial Street, where various fudge, taffy and trinket shops compete for attention with street musicians and drag queens promoting their shows below, with some of the bars and restaurants we frequented, our lovely host's house, and the fabulous tea dance at the Boatslip. We were ALWAYS at tea dance on time!!! Their was also a fabulous parade one day! And that is indeed Charo who was the Grand Marshall of the parade. I also spotted John Waters one day walking about too!












Of course the Mistress being a nature lover, there was also the lovely beaches. And this time of year starts the whales coming back! Whale watches here are always chock-a-block with sightings of minkes, fins and humpbacks, as well as the occasional fleet of dolphins, thanks to P-town’s proximity to the Steelwagen Bank, an area where the whales come to feed. I would love to go back again and take the actual whale watch trip! Then there the gay scene,where it is pretty much impossible to avoid, there are definitely certain venues and events that will catapult you directly into the action. For the beach, the boys will want to bike just past the salt marsh at the end of Commercial Street to Herring Cove’s alternate entrance, made obvious by the mass of bicycles parked along the fence there. Post-beach it’s time for Tea Dance EVERYDAY at the Boatslip, a daily ritual marked by cocktails and shirtless bumping and grinding, waterside. Not that I did any of that!!! Then we moved with the masses for some dining out, followed by a night of dancing at the Crown & Anchor’s Paramount and Vault( where the Mistress was thrown into a wet under garment contest, don't ask... but I did place third,) historic A-House, or, on Saturdays, the new Velvet at Saki. While there I also got to unexpectedly meet the ever fabulous and wonderful hostess and faithful blog reader, Pearl Gates!!!! She even got as passes for the cocktail cruise where I got to see a whale pretty close, but since I had about, well, lets just say a few cock-a-tails, I missed it for a pic, but did get the tail. So cool to see! And Pearl it felt I've known forever! The Lad and another of my crew gave me permission to take their handsome pictures! It also wouldn't be a visit here without seeing Miss Richfield 1981!!!












I'm already doing a count down till next year!!! And I was even worried about staying in a house with 9 queens! But everything went very well! After returning I relaxed a few days before heading back to work for three days. Now I have a ton of blog reading to catch up on. And cleaning to do, and laundry, and food shopping, get a oil change, pay bills, and start planning holiday strategy for work. Ohhhhhhhh dear, I so need another vacation! Tootles!
