Confession time: despite moving here more than a year ago, I hadn’t driven all the way up to Provincetown until last week. Oops. The only time I had been to the tip of Cape Cod was as a kid, when I had taken the boat from Boston with my family one summer. Memories are so weird. I remember exactly where the boat docked, which bench we sat on with our ice cream. But anyway, I digress.

I’ve heard incredible things about the beauty of Race Point, so I put it on my summer bucket list. I’m happy I checked it off so soon. The place was essentially¬†empty. I don’t envy the people working there to prepare the beach for the summer since this winter kicked the poor Seashore around. It was a very where-the-heck-am-I feeling, the landscape is unlike any I’ve¬†ever seen before. The range of colors on the dunes themselves was dreamy.

And then I got to the water.

I may need to print these out for my house (happily named the tide pool, by the way – every proper beach house needs a name, I think). I could look at these shades of blue all day.

i'm not sure if i took a single picture in november. shameful! this picture was taken on cape cod this week, where i visited for a job interview. i said i would love to live there for many reasons, partly because it's just so darn pretty outside. (i didn't say that, exactly, don't worry.) they said well, it's actually mostly gloomy this time of year. so afterwards i went hunting for this photo - a gray day doesn't mean it's any less beautiful.

view from the point, fairfield, connecticut. houses on the point were some of the most devastated by hurricane sandy. many are still boarded up or were condemned outright. volunteers helped remove furniture, belongings, and carpeting from the houses this past weekend, but it will take many months before these homes are inhabitable again.
