Where I stayed
Well we had just left Cape Wet Sod…. owphies sorry I mean Cape Cod, and as if you couldn't tell it hasn't been the greatest couple of days. Sunday was passable we got to the Cape and drove all the way down to Provincetown expecting some beautiful views that never appeared. So we found a camp site… an extortionate campsite (to be honest they all where) that charged us $130 to stay for 2 nights. Now having paid that you would expect the nicest campsite ever, and it was very nice all in the dunes and the woods BUT they then had the nerve to charge you 25c for every 3 minutes in the shower!!! Anyways… we set up camp and took walked the 20 minutes or so into Provincetown along the side of quite a crazy highway, once we arrived in town and saw the $15+ parking charges we where glad that we took the walk along the highway! We poked around a bit in the insanely expensive shops dodging the showers before heading out of town and walking across the causeway to the light house at the end of the point
Yesterday we therefore had to go about fixing the tent. Myself and Ben came up with the bright idea of buying 2 ground sheet type things one to tie to the trees and put over the tent as many other people at the campsite had done. With a second to put over the already wet floor inside of the tent. So then we drove 1 hour down the cape to the nearest Home Depot (kind of like B&Q) and discovered this was an expensive plan and would cost us at least $50
This morning guess what it is STILL raining so we packed up own 2 new tents all wet and yucky and binned the old tent. So our overall group opinion of Cape Cod isn't great…. it is a) expensive b) wet and c) has nothing much to do in the rain. I personally think our perception would have been very different if the weather would have been good. We could have hired bikes and kykaks and surfed and walked and just have had fun. YES the camping still would have been expensive but I think the location in better weather would have made it worth while. Anyway now we are off to Rhode Island to look around there this afternoon, we are hoping to drive out of this miserable rain, then we are camping just outside of New York City this evening so we can head straight into the city tomorrow find our hostel and get sight seeing!!! Please hope that the weather picks up for our sight seeing in NYC!
All for now,

P.S. not very many pictures because we haven't really done that much!!!
