Cape Cod

From Manhattan, I drove through 4 different states (New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts) to reach Cape Cod. The New England countryside is typical anglican.... reminiscene of the old motherland. The houses are quaint, white and cape-cod type. "Kennedy" is a household name here especially in Hyannisport and Martha's Vineyard.... and Chappy (or Chappaquiddick... remember Ted Kennedy's younger days?).

Tip of the Cape
Provincetown, located at the tip of the cape, is not only an upscale gay mecca summer vacation playground, it is also the site of the first landing of the Mayflower. Plymouth Rock is actually the second.... the Puritans decided that Provincetown was unsuitable for farming because of the sand dunes and sailed on. The town, filled with expensive B & B's, restaurants and shops, comes alive at dusk.

The Traveler at Martha's Vineyard

"I always go to Hyannisport to be revived, to know again the power of the sea, and the Master who rules over it and all of us."

Passing through New Haven, CT - Yale Campus.....

where Michael B (confirmed non-member of Skull & Bones), John Kerry and George W. Bush went to college.
