Two young 50-something females. One big adventure exploring the Americas. Have liquidated everything they own and packed a Saturn Vue with bare necessities to set out on this journey. Planting seeds at each juncture symbolizing their new growth. With an open mind and heart, ready to get a true view of this world.

The weather is continuing to clear and our drive to Cape Cod is just beautiful. After much research and advise, we find ourselves at the northern end of the cape. Our new friend, Paul, has strongly suggested this after his time with us and we are once again very grateful for his astute observances. We find the perfect stop in North Truro, at the Crow's Nest, directly on the Cape Cod Bay with spectacular views in every direction. This is the deal of the century as Charlene, the property's manager, shows us the last available unit, with the promise of moving us to a larger room in a few days when one comes available. The weekly rate is phenomenal, still off season! After two months on the road, we are in need of some rest and quiet. Having a full kitchen allows us to cook in a bit and the outside adirondack chairs overlooking the water, the perfect spot for catching up on some relaxing reading. A stroll on the beach steps away. Ahhh!!!!!
We settle in to our very comfortable accommodations, stock the kitchen from the nearby grocery, and take it easy for the duration of the day. The sunset is gorgeous!
The next morning provides even more sun and we set up camp on the outside deck with good books for the day. Save for a stroll along the shore, this is our day and indeed perfect.
We choose a bit more activity on Sunday with a couple of hikes on the Pilgrim's Trail and a trip to the Cape Cod Lighthouse. A picnic on the National Seashore along the Atlantic at Coastguard Beach is quite pretty, very peaceful with huge dunes as the backdrop.
A trip to the Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod provides a little tasting of local wines that prove quite nice. We choose a couple to accompany the lobster we have steamed to go down the way. The dinner this evening from our porch is spectacular. It can't be more indicative of the cape! Completely refreshed, we embrace our time here. Multiple hiking trails, a whale watching trip (compliments of our lovely hostess, Charlene), bike rides, a ferry to Nantucket all our looming ahead. We're ready!!!
