we couldn’t very well stay at a place called “gateway to cape cod” without going out to cape cod, now could we. so, on one particularly nice day, after we had recovered from our busy weekend, we took off for the cape cod national seashore.
the drive was a little long for us. it should have been about 1:20, but it’s just two lanes for a long stretch down the middle of the cape and it was slow going. but, we finally made it, only to find all the parking lots were full. i was a little stressed, but happened upon a lot where there’s a beach shuttle that runs every fifteen minutes-ish. so, the trolley it would be.
on the way home, we stopped at the national park welcome center to get stamped for “cape cod national seashore”. then, back on the dreaded two lane high way through the cape to get back to the gateway.
