Pics from Boston and the Cape

The sad remains of a lunch at Pizzeria Reginia in Boston's North End. Dave's mother says the interior is the same as when she was girl, in the 30's.

Pastry Shop. They have table service!
Paul Revere House.
Parade of Schooners at Provincetown.
A Salt Box for sale.
General Store.
Sunflowers.
Frappo's in Provincetown.
Cape Cod National Seashore
Race Point Beach.
City Hall, where everybody stops to linger and maybe strike up a conversation.
Plein-air painter at Longnook Beach.

I think the pictures say it all.

your beaches look so empty - i guess it is the sheer expanse of the country, and maybe the kind of ocean you are surrounded by. I have almost forgotten what it feels like to live in a country where the sea looks looks green-grey (i left nz a long time ago)

Those are great pics. I especially liked the one of the house and the one of Dave on the beach. I am going to have to visit Boston one day

Thanks! There are no beaches like the Med. ones! This is the first fall in 4 years that I have not been to Greece so Cape Cod was the consolation prize for not being there.
That said, it is really quite wonderful in its own way. We went after Sept 1, and our traditional end of summer holiday, Labor Day. People on our East Coast just seem to forget about the beach after that and it is warm and quiet, more like Greece in October.
