For those of you that don’t know, I am an actor among other things. I am currently working on The Common Swallow in Provincetown, MA, which will be making it’s NYC premier this winter/spring. I drive up from Brewster every day to rehearse and just adore the drive. It’s quite a treat to drive between two enormous bodies of water. Whenever I get a chance to stop, I take a quick break at one of our stunning beaches. I recently discovered Lecount Hollow Beach in Wellfleet, one of my favorite towns on the Cape. The parking lot is high on top of the dunes. You have to walk down the extremely steep dunes to make it into this practically untouched beach. So lovely. Be sure to stop along the way at PB Boulangerie & Bistro for delicious french pastries or a fabulous dinner. Another one of my favorites is Head of the Meadow Beach in Truro, I always seems to stop there at nighttime. It’s an easy walk from the parking lot and flat. Really nice stargazing.
Ptown has so much to offer beyond fantastic restaurants and striking beaches, the art world is very active. The best art galleries on the Cape are located in Ptown and the theater world always has something to offer. Many well known artists were involved over the years in Ptown’s art community, including Eugene O’Neill, John Dos Passos, Tennessee Williams, Norman Mailer and Michael Cunningham.
I highly recommend making your way up to Ptown while here and check out our talented artists and the active lifestyles there. It’s quite a treat and sweet addition to our little peninsula. Definitely my favorite town out here. And it’s the very end of the USA. A magical place.
