We have had a couple of down days.
Highlights included finding a pair of fresh water lakes in the Nickerson National Park which helped as we have discovered they are having a bit of a shark problem on the cape!

... just kept explaining the we were from the UK which seemed to satisfy our audience.
Dried off, did a bit of long jump and then sat up in the Life guard's chair- it was about 6pm and all the lifeguards had left. The sun was cooling off but the wind was still up. As it happened the hollow tubes at the back of the elevated chair we were all crushed into kept catching the breeze and playing different notes- a really unexpectedly magic moment.
Headed home a bit windswept.
... American tribe the lighthouse will be lost. I arrived back at Oak Bluffs just in time to catch the 2:15pm ferry back to the mainland. In the late afternoon we drove to Provincetown. Provincetown, located near the very tip of Cape Cod is often called "P-town". The town is known for its beaches, harbour, artists, tourist industry and gay community. It was a lovely evening and there were a lot of people out and about, also a lot of dogs in restaurants, on the beach and in ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPequot Hotel Oak Bluffs
This is an absolutely charming hotel a block from the beach and a languid ten-minute's walk from Oak Bluffs harbor and ferry. The room we have is small, but the point of a stay here is to be exploring MV and not sitting inside, so that's not a problem. For those who care about such things, there was no tv or phone in our room -- not a problem for us in the least. The only slightly troublesome aspect was that the wireless connection did not really work in the rooms, but the a/c did. But, the bed was comfortable and the towels fluffy.
The staff are friendly and every afternoon they set out the most delicious chocolate-chip cookies I've ever had! After a long day biking all over the island, our final five miles of the trip concentrated the mind on those cookies and lemonade awaiting us. They did not disappoint as we munched and sipped on the porch swing.
