It was a 4 day whirlwind!
I went to Cape Cod MA, with Dave, from Saturday to Sunday and then to New York City, with my cousin, from Monday to Tuesday.
The Cape trip was to celebrate 1 year together, (I cant believe its been a year!), and NYC was to celebrate my birthday.
Dave and I hit the road early Saturday morning and our first stop was Grays Beach in Yarmouth MA. Rain was on it’s way so we wanted to see as much outside as we could. We walked the 1/4 mile long pier, through the estuaries. It was really neat to see and it would be cool to go back another time of year.
Then, we headed to Uncle Tim’s Bridge in Wellfleet MA We crossed the bridge and walked the around the island, which had some nice views.
Our next stop was The 3 Sisters Lighthouses. You can read about them in the link below.
and the Nauset Lighthouse, which was right down the road.
Then to the National Seashore visitors center. I did not take any pictures inside, but it was very interesting.
Our next stop was at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum, which was pretty cool. One side of the museum was about the fishing and shell fishing industry and the other side was about the area lighthouses and also had 2 photographer’s work on display. Both stunning to say the least. Again, no pictures taken inside but here are some links
The rain was coming down at this point so we made our way to the Airbnb we had booked. On the way, we stopped at a cool antique store, a nice 2nd hand store and had a good dinner at a Mexican restaurant.
El Mariachi Mexican Restaurant https://elmariachimr.com/
I would definitely recommend this place to stay. They also have 2 other cottages as well.
Sunday, we had breakfast at https://www.thebreakfastroomcapecod.net/
We then went to the Whydah Pirate Museum, which was very cool. I could not take photos inside unfortunately.
Next, we went to the Sandwich Boardwalk. Another place to go back to in better weather. The boardwalk is currently under construction from a past storm but it was still a cool site to see. And the beach was great to walk on as well.
Another cool stop was at the Bass River Mercantile, in South Yarmouth. it’s been there since 1793!! What a great store, with TONS of great stuff. I found a great Lighthouse Windchime to add to my backyard windchime collection.
It was such a short but GREAT weekend!!!
We got home around dinner time and I had to empty my bag and pack a new one for NYC
Monday, at 6am, I was on the road again…to meet up with my cousin, where we drove 2 hours, from RI to CT, to get the train to NYC. We arrived in NY at around 10am. We took a subway to the hotel and luckily could check in early and drop our bags in the room. We stayed at the CitizenM on Bowery. It was a very high tech hotel. Very small rooms with an iPad, that controlled everything in the room, such as the lights, TV, and window shades.
We then went to the Landlord Tenement Museum, which was very interesting.
We tried to have lunch at Katz’s Deli but the line was a block long.
We had an amazing dinner at https://www.emporiony.com/
Tuesday morning, we had breakfast at a very cute place https://fiatcafenyc.com/
Our last stop was the Titanic Exhibit, which was very moving but good. It was at a venue at 526 6th Ave.
I was exhausted after all of that but it was so fun. I walked of 10000 steps at the cape in 2 days, and 24000 steps in NY in 2 days. WOW!!!
Time to plan another adventure, maybe not 2 back to back again, lol.
