P-Town, Cape Cod or ….

Provincetown, located out at the eastern end of Cape Cod welcomes ships with its pretty standard looking lighthouse. This is the last standard looking commercial building you see. P-town, as it is known by the locals and those of us in the know, is one of the most tacky places you can imagine. It has a population of 3,000, except in the summer tourist season when it grows to 60,000. The 60,000 are made up of what I like to refer to as LGBTH crowd – that’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transvestite and Heterosexual crowd. Chris just does not seem to understand why I think this place is so tacky; she thinks it’s fun. I doubt it was this tacky when the Pilgrims stopped by in 1620 – but they even decided to settle across the bay on the mainland in Plymouth.

Chris said I had to stay out of this store.

OK, not all is tacky. This was a private metal art garden and stoneworks exhibit off the main drag.
