Provincetown was definitely a different experience this summer. Having not been called back to work yet, Pearly Gates asked if I wanted to spend some time up in this lovely little spigot of land. Normally Ptown, is one of the countries most popular gay hot spots. Like everywhere else, the town has been hit hard with the pandemic, with many bars cancelling shows, and drag residencies, and most of the towns events and theme weeks are gone or have been cancelled. Dine in didn't even start till right before I got there. I was leery about going at first, but Pearly, who was going complete do lally, said the town's tourist where down by huge numbers. Besides that, the dear's house is on the end of one of the streets, in a quiet location, and access to the beach. We'd stay at the Pearly's house most of the time, cook, kiki, dance and just act nuts. I thought what the hell, It may even give me time to work on my next covid-19 pamphlet. I was pleasantly surprised and shocked, to see just how quiet the town was. This was also the first time I'd been without the whole clan...so the hijinks were to a minimum. But I was sooooooo relaxed and need the beach time desperately. Nothing like the beach can tame and relax me....the sounds and smell alone.
If I'm not worrying about getting devoured by the bears at The Woods,
it's the sharks here!!!!!
One afternoon we even saw some wolves on the beach. One even swiped a woman's Croc. See, I told you no one likes those damn ugly things.
One afternoon, Pearly was very appalled with yours truly as I was trying to get a seamen report from a passing vessel. I have no idea why, I thought my hat was rather on point for boating and rather sea worthy.
One of the biggest jelly fish I ever did see after a storm one night. At first, I thought it was one of Bianca Del Rio's wigs.
The below shot was the most packed I personally saw it while there.
We were in town most days, veiled of course, for a walk to get excercise, to get take out, and to visit their award winning fudge shops. I even bought me some of my favorite summer candies, Divinity. We had one dinner out, and it was quite comfortable and no worries. I was very relived. This was a place called Strangers and Saints.
The Dogs Mother would be proud even the gnomes were protected.
I grilled for us one night...London Broils and grilled romaine.
This town is so quaint, beautiful small homes, pretty gardens and always something of interests to see, like the mural of this garage doors.
It was a most lovely and relaxing trip. If it stays quiet and the pandemic stays at bay here in the Northeast, I may take a return trip later this summer, since our Rehoboth Beach weekends have all been cancelled. I got word just today their beaches are closing down again with huge spikes with the virus. Forget it. With Ptown , I will sacrifice the 8 hour drive and stay even longer. It's like the end of the world. What better place to be?
It's the beach.
