Commercial Street- Provincetown

Amazed that many stores were closed already for the season on the 25th of November. Also many were not open for the day yet. Oh well, no money to spend and nothing really intriguing to browse.
Still fun to see the colors, the people, and walk a busy thoroughfare with the occasional crazy driver!

does the Pilgrim Monument seem to be leaning?

 those birds- we had them when the artist first made them- very whimsical.

Portuguese Bakery- a former boss used to drive up there for Spinach Pies (Popeyes LOL) buy a bunch of them and freeze them.

 ha ha ha Cape Cod Times office
 this guy was driving a van did a u turn on the one way street parked in a no parking spot got out and pants almost fell down- I wish

MacMillan Wharf

Pilgrim Monument

Headed up there Wednesday with the promise of free admission to the monument. I get there and the "free" part was only that night as they light up for the season. I made a bit of a fuss about it and got in for 6 bucks. I was not about to pay 12 bucks to get not even halfway up the monument and turn around. That's why I waited for free! Well enough of that it was a gorgeous day. I wanted to take a selfie at the monument to mimic the one taken of me in 1950. But being alone that  was sort of impossible so I took a  video instead.

It is a bunch of slanted steep steps just to get to admissions. Then quite a steep climb to get to the monument itself. I got as far as the Eastham plaque inside. I judge I climbed 40 steps but really have no clue.
The trek to get there


^^^^^ the look down before I got too high up LOL
