I spent two hours waiting in line for a beach sticker yesterday morning.  Ugh.  By the time that torture was complete, there was no parking at any of the beaches.  We ended up giving up and bringing the cars back to the house and walking in to town for lunch.  Boring but we went back to Winslows to enjoy the lovely shaded patio. Oysters

Later I grilled burgers for the kids.  Bean burger on left, beef on right.  The adults shared a grilled clam pizza.  Part of it fell into the grill so no picture.  What did not fall in was tasty.

Even the 4th of July parade in Wellfleet has an undercurrent of food running through it

These guys are shucking free oysters for paradegoers.  You run up to the float to get one

I've been to Provincetown twice, once in the dead of winter since I was up nearby on a business trip while I was headed to a concert.  And once for women's week.  Alas those trips were in the last millennium.  I don't drive anymore.

 

On the last occasion I do remember that there was a hot sauce shop where I stocked up.

 took a few days away from the computer.  I'm home now, so here are the final photos from the trip.  Another breakfast at the Fairway before heading to Coast Guard Beach, where we watched the excitement of a Great White Shark being spotted and tagged offshore.  Blueberry pancakes (again!)

And that concluded this visit.  Not sure if we will get back to the Cape in August as we found the on-season traffic to be exhausting to deal with, but we are booked for 10 days in October, which will encompass Wellfleet's Oysterfest.  Last year there were no oysters at the fest due to a salmonella outbreak.  I am hoping for better luck this year.  

 

I will leave you with a photo of our final sunset

That food looks wonderful. I had to look up Ndjuja, and That Fount Of All Knowledge </tongue in cheek> came up with 'Nduja instead. Is that what was in your pasta?

 

Glorious photos, all around.  Many thanks!

 Sorry, I did not see this until now!  Yes, that is what was in the pasta. I did not have it--it was my nephew's dish, so cannot comment on the flavor.

We had another quick few days out on the Cape last weekend.  My nephew heads to college next weekend, so we were visiting all of his favorites one last time.  He chose the Fairway in Eastham for our first dinner.  I think he likes it for the huge portions.  Cod bites

We'll be in Wellfleet and Provincetown for six days over Labor Day, sadly without my nephew, but on the positive side it means that we will be hitting some new places, and there might even be some lobster to be had.

Talk about some fantastic looking seafood!

 

Drinks look very nice too - would be curious to hear what all those fancy concoctions are.

Re: the swordfish Reuben. I had never heard of, or even considered, fish on a Reuben until I found it on the menu at a place in Murrell's Inlet, SC. Had to try it. Was somewhat amazed. Much better than I thought it would be. Of course, it was grouper, and I can't say I've ever had fresh grouper that wasn't good.

There are no words for the depth of my envy.

 

But I am going to the Gulf and NOLA the end of October. There will be oysters, yes, there will. And seafood at every meal. And breakfast at Brennan's, which is worth the price of travel to NOLA.

Final update for this trip.  My sister and my niece went home Monday morning as niece started school today.  The rest of us went to the Beachcomber to close it for the season.

And that's it!  I'll be returning for 10 days in October, which will encompass the Wellfleet Oysterfest.  Hopefully this year there will actually be oysters!  Last year there was a salmonella outbreak and the beds were closed.  Until next time, here's a photo of Cahoon Hollow, one of my favorite beaches for long walks.
