P-town, Deserted, too, in Quiet Season

Provincetown was surprisingly empty of all signs of life last weekend when Sven and I journeyed down the highway to take in the sights. Few of the stores were open. There were a few bicyclists, but not many pedestrians. We saw a houseboat out on the bay, but no right whales, spotted last week by Stormy Mayo at Coastal Studies. There was a cool lobster trap tree near the town pier. Apparently, this Christmas New England is asking Who Has The Fairest Lobster Trap Tree of All? The one in P-town was quite fair indeed. Recently off-season Provincetown was described in a Yankee Magazine Blog, a fluff post but with lots of photos. Now why doesn’t Yankee feature a place blog like this one to get the real scoop on what’s going on in an Outer Cape town?
