ON THE COAST

  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.

  3. Wonderful post...as always your words and photos so wonderfully tell the story!!! Trust you had the necessary down time that the beach so well provides and is so much more necessary in times like these!
    Your post brings back fond memories of my trip there just over 20 years ago! Might have actually stayed in one of the inns on the left hand side of the street in the photo following the jelly fish! ...needless to say, great seafood dinners!!!
    So glad you were able to get away....seize the opportunity!!! BTW, that ass of yours is always a hot treat!!!! Hugs, Luke

    1. You should plan another trip back...I bet no much has changed. The pretty big white house in the White Wind Inn. the other one I pictured in the Prince Albert...a very popular place to stay!!!! I knew I need one ass shot. Some of my readers would have been disappointed.

  4. love the photos!
    It really is a beautiful place. I’ve never been there but people keep telling me I have got to go. The gnome made me laugh and I love the street art. You ere totally dressed for the seamen. The hat was on point.
    Those beaches look super inviting! Now I want to go to the beach. I blame you.

    XoXo

    1. You would love it, and I would have a fun time with you there. It was a low key visit for sure.

  5. Looks like an awesome time. Beach houses are all booked up everywhere by me because everyone wants to get away. I'm glad you didn't get your donger bit off by a wolf or stung by a jelly fish while you were waving to that boat in only a hat.

    1. Beach houses here I think were booked my friend said, but many B&B'S had rooms available so I hear. My friend lives there year round, so I had no worries. And I always make sure my kibble and bit's are protected!!!!!!

  6. You had me at the opening shot!!!!! See it's good to know people all over, I could use a get away, but not sure where to head. But for now, I will live vicariously through they most lovely pictures. I only wonder what the people on that boat thought?

  7. Oh Mistress, I can't wait to leave now. William and I are heding to Slaughter Beach to a rental we have for a month. There is a natural private beach so we won't have to worry about crowds if we choose to sit on it. Your pictures reminds me of my favorite quotes.

    “Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away or you have seen it.”

  9. I was loving the photos until I saw the shark warning and the wolves - - but the pic of you flagging the passing vessel restored my faith in humanity.

  11. How beautiful it all is.

    Amazing to see the wolves too!

    I love all the photos, well not the jellyfish so much but the white picket fence covered in the palest pink roses just makes me swoon.

    I feel as though I've had a "time out" from reality.
    Thank you.

    1. That's the first time I saw wolves there. Because of the quietness..they have emerged.

  12. Oh man those pictures are a delight to see. We got away to Palm Springs for a few days. Nothing like the beach for some time to relax.

    "some wolves on the beach. One even swiped a woman's Croc. See, I told you no one likes those damn ugly things." I can't stand Crocs either. I hope you gave the wolf a steak for taking that fucking ugly thing.

  13. Beautiful pictures!!!! This will be my Happy Post for the day. THAT ASS!!!!

    Although I don't know how to feel about the emptiness of the town. I sure hope they can make it.

  15. When I lived in Boston, I used to love P'Town off-season. But I never saw it like that in summer. That would be bliss.

  16. Oh Maddie, this may not have been the visit you wanted, but it was the one you needed. It looks just beautiful. Reminds me of the quaint towns in Door County Wisconsin, but more gay friendly. I would so like to go there.

  17. So many comments to make. First... P-Town. Never been. After seeing your wonderful pics, it is on the list. Then... YOU on the beach summoning a ship in the hopes of sailor semen... OMG. YOU are gorge. Amazeballs. Cutest azz. I just keep staring at it. Strut your stuff! Jellyfish? I thought it was a picture of a circuit boys pucker after White Party. Thank you for sharing these. I am so starved for travel and this kind of a tour is exactly what I need. Mu-wah.

  18. Traveling vicariously, looks like bliss. Did the sailors waive back?

  19. It must have been very low-key ... you kept your hat on!

  20. It was a very fun trip Maddie. Thank you so much for coming up. Im here to tell you all two things 1-Telling Maddie to keep dressed is easier said than done.
    2- He is a most excellent cook on the grill. I dare even say a master griller. He
    certainly knows how to handle his meat anyway.

  24. It looks eerie being that empty. Wow.... Glad you had a good time. And, honey, if I'd been sailing by and saw you on the beach like that? I certainly would've stopped for you to join me!

    1. I was happy it was the quiet and not crowded. A shock at first, but if it had it's regular sized crowds, I wouldn't have gone. It's one reason Im not going to Rehoboth Beach. The virus there is spiking again.

  25. I don't know why, but you in the hat naked reminded me of the Blue Lagoon. Your ass might be just like Christopher Atkins's too. It's quite the peach.

  26. Those beach shots are amazing!!!!! The wolves blew my mind!!!! I can hear it! The people on the boat must have thought you were nuts. Or sure saw them nuts.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm spending my pandemic with you. That ass shot is precious!

    Love all the homes and that home with the pride flags too.

  28. Thank you for taking us with you again. I feel as though I was right there with you. Those wolves are pretty amazing. Glad to hear they have your back on the Crocs. I hate those things too, and my mother broke her ankle years ago in a pair of those damn things.

  29. So glad to have you back! I am still working from home and this was my break. Those pictures did we good to see. I bet you had a good time. The ocean I believe must be the most therapeutic thing of the planet. And that moon helps too!

  36. Idyllic! Your photos of Provincetown never fail to make me wish I was there - especially so this time as there're no crowds. The beach ones are my favourite - particularly the fourth one with the roses as that could have been taken on the beach here!
