Hello My Minions!
We’re back home at the Ashram, safe and sound!
We had a lovely four days at the Cape.
We stayed at the Cape Point Hotel in West Yarmouth.
It was okay.
It’s one of those hotels that has been around since the Seventies, and boy could you tell!
Mind you, it was clean. But very spartan in decor. And it was definitely “worn around the edges”.
It seemed to cater to an older crowd as well. Husbandji and I were the youngest ones there.
Husbandji’s brother “A” had recommended it to us as very clean and affordable. (THAT should have been a dead give-a-way!)
Again, it was okay, but the next time we go down we’ll spring for a few extra bucks (Cape Point was only $50 a night) and stay somewhere a little nicer.
Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time while we were there!
We did all the touristy things that people do (although we did not get to Provincetown! I know! It was another hour’s drive from where we were staying and Husbandji just didn’t want to drive that far just to go to another tourist trap, even if it was a “gay tourist trap”! (Next time we’ll hit it, never fear!))
We did go to Pirate’s Cove and played miniature golf and shopped in the gift shop! Faaabulous!!
This is just outside the faaabulous gift shop! Aaargh!!
This is the view from the top of the miniature golf course! I got two holes in one! (Let’s keep it clean people!) Faaaabulous!
We also hit a ton of other gift shops and loaded up on souvenirs (we’re such tourists!). We also had some fabulous food at some area restaurants.
Some stand-out meals:
We had lunch at Salty’s one day. The clam fritters were to die for! We also both had the lobster roll. Yummy! The place is very rustic in decor and the meals were very reasonably priced.
We had dinner later that same day at Captain Parker’s Pub (just a few doors down from Salty’s!!) We didn’t have the clam chowder that they are famous for, but, I had the grilled swordfish and Husbandji had the baked stuffed shrimp, and both were top notch! And again, the prices were very reasonable.
Another day we had lunch at Acapulco’s Mexican Restaurant in West Yarmouth. I had a seafood burrito and Husbandji had some kind of chicken dish. Bar none, it was some of the best Mexican food that I have ever had!
A nice thing that I noticed about the restaurants at the Cape, is that every place that we dined offered at least one Vegetarian item on the menu! (That had always been a concern of mine when I was a strict vegetarian, as far as visiting Cape Cod was concerned. But, when I started eating seafood again it became a non-issue. It’s nice to know that if I ever go back to being fully “veg”, that I will have options when we go back!)
We did also visit some of the area beaches. It was too cold to go swimming or sunbathing, but we did take some nice walks along them. Lovely!
All in all, it was a wonderful time! And believe it or not, Husbandji actually held off on calling Tiamat until the second night that we were there! I guess that miracles do happen!
Talk to you soon!
