Chronicles of Adventure: Kate Goes to Cape Cod

Take a plane, to a water taxi, to a ferry and you can get yourself to Provincetown, last stop at the end of Cape Cod. An old Portuguese fishing town, artist's haven, and dune covered landscape. It's the place where we originally found our women's creative director, Kate, and where she managed to return to for a few weeks this past month. Of course the TS gear was in tow, being put to wear in the place where so many of it's inspirations had come from. A bag could have been packed existing only of sunnies, a hat, a swimsuit, some cut off shorts, our white Caroline shirt, our sea washed indigo Margo dress and it would have been just enough. The weather was warm, life was simple and the swims were the perfect temperature.

You can get almost anywhere just by bike or foot and the town might as well consist of just one street. There's no planning needed during the day, just hop on the bike and ride down Commercial and you'll run into anyone or anything you're after. On either end you can find good swimming holes. Go a few hours before low tide and you'll find the warmest temps and the dreamiest hot spots. Take a hike in search of the famous dune shacks and get lost in the dizzying moonscape-esque landscape- just make sure you take a local, drop a trail of crumbs, or leave plenty of time to find your way back. When you get back to town there's an endless supply of fresh caught seafood: striped bass, littleneck clams, lobster, and of course cod- all caught in and around the harbor. And if you head out onto the piers at dusk you can find plenty of folks "squidding"- a fun summer time ritual. Take the fresh catch home, grill it up, and voila, life just doesn't get much better...
