After two weeks in Provincetown MA, today we spent the day getting ready to leave. It is amazing how much there is to do when you have been sitting in one place for twelve days.
After packing, cleaning up, and a ton of preparations, it was finally time to get back on the road but before taking off, we decided to go see the beach, the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Herring Cove Beach is gorgeous, the sand is like sugar, the dunes are beautiful, and the water is a lovely blue. It was sooooo cold but the sun was out and we were happy to just hear the sound of the ocean once again.
After the beach we headed to Connecticut to the Foxwoods Resort and Casino, where they have free rv parking. We made it there at about 9:00 pm and went inside to check it out. We were like kids in a candy store and we don’t even gamble.
We walked around this huge place and looked at everything we could, there are dozens of different textures and colors and materials everywhere. There are walls made out of lighted beads that change colors, and floors made out of granite and marble. No two areas are the same or even look alike, and everything is so pretty, shiny, and new.
We found out we could get free tickets to The Price Is Right Live by signing up for the free Foxwoods card. So we got our free tickets and then headed to the Keno lounge. We don’t like to gamble but we thought we’d give Keno a try. First, we sat there to observe and learn the game. Then we decided to give it a try. One dollar and 10 numbers later we had no luck. We decided to try again and again we missed. About two dollars is the limit of our comfort level when it comes to gambling, so we gave up and went to explore again, there is so much to see.
When we got back to Bella we realized we had forgotten to fill the fresh water tank. Big bummer. We figured we had enough water for maybe one shower so Bernie made a funnel with a plastic cup and added two gallons of water so at least one of us could get a hot shower. It actually worked and Mar was able to take a nice shower before bed.
Then we piled up the layers and the blankets for the night … it was pretty cold tonight.
