Big Sur - Hiking Andrew Molera State Park

One of the great delights of living in the Bay Area is the proximity to the natural beauty of California and it's hard to beat the stunning drive down Highway One to Big Sur. This is certainly one of the iconic American road trips, but for me the joy of being in the area is getting out of your car and hitting a trail, so you can be "in" the landscape rather than just looking at it from the asphalt. 

P-Town on Cape Cod

This seems like the quintessential P-Town scene to me, sun, sand water and fit looking  men in their swim trunks, no complaints here! We had a great time in Provincetown  after having heard about it for years. Yes it's crowded in the summer and there seem to be lots of tourists here to gawk at the natives, but the place has charm.
We had a couple of good meals and can recommend the Red Inn where the food was matched by excellent service, casual but spot on. With a lovely table at the window for our anniversary I had nothing to complain about. Thanks D., good job! I loved Canteen which is on the main drag, the hot lobster roll (below) was incredible.  

The food is great and the place is stylish, relaxed and highly recommended for a quick lunch. We tried a few other places for drinks with a view but while enjoyable they seemed fairly interchangeable.
Three nights wasn't nearly enough time and I hope we'll be back. This was part of a quick trip back east to celebrate friends birthdays (T. & D.) and to visit family. After decades in America I finally made my first visit to Boston!
We enjoyed the beach at Race Point National Seashore pictured below. I loved the elderly lady who just put her chair down on the way to the beach, she was having a great time and we had a chat when I walked past.

We missed the P-town carnival by one day but would love to go back to partake of the fun. If you're a well dressed woman your only competition in town will be the drag queens, why didn't I take any photos, those girls know how to wear heels!

J.- we loved your charming place, thanks for lending it to us. It may have been a mistake as we'll be begging to come back...
