After a few minutes we are in what looks like a desert somewhere out West instead of the East coast...
There are little dune shacks spread amongst the windswept sand bluffs, where artists and lifeguards once lived, and where until recently we were told an elderly woman lived by herself, off the land...
The dunes abut the beach on one side (see the sliver of blue, above) and on the other, you can see back toward downtown and there is a clear view of the Pilgrim Monument (a tower we climbed to the top for breathtaking views of Cape Cod!)
There is the Pilgrim Monument in the distance, on the left, above.
Couldn't you just lie down here and soak up the sun all day? sigh!
And just five minutes away you will find the busiest harbor in the summer in this part of Massachusetts. But that is another post, entirely...downtown P-town is a colorful and wonderfully fun place to go shopping, dog and people watching, and to be inspired.
If you visit Cape Cod, check out Art's and be sure to see more photos in their gallery that tourists have added, showing the beauty of this remote area in various seasons.
