A Word about Love

If you look at a map of the United States, and you look at the region of New England, and then the state of Massachusetts, you will easily notice the "boot" shaped piece of land on the east side, surrounded by the Atlantic ocean. The very tip of the Massachusetts boot is where I stood to take these photos. This is the very spot where the Pilgrims landed in 1620. And this is the spot where the town of Provincetown built a memorial garden. Look no further if you'd like a taste of the flavor of the town and its people. There are hundreds of the plaques: here are a few.

  1. Sitting here with my tea this morning, KJ, reading your blog was a beautiful way to start my morning ... may each of us have tributes written about us like these when we're gone! And bless P-town ... were all towns so tolerant, the world would come leaps and bounds. xoxo

  2. Your blog has made Provincetown one of my "I want to visit" places.

  3. The quote on that last plaque, along with the picture of the breakwater, brought tears to my eyes. Words cannot describe how wonderful the very tip of the cape is...
