Welcome to Our Future!
Hi! I’m Jim Rogers, here with my wife Bonnie, welcoming you to join us for the experience of our lifetime. For years we’ve experienced the joys of travel, but not in the style we do today.
Let me start at the beginning. We met in Hawaii on the beach in Waikiki in 1990 and married ten years later in Florida. We bought an old Sports Coach, Class A, and traveled for a year before settling in Las Vegas. But the bug of travel stayed with us until we bought another Class A, a 35 foot Bounder, and hit the road this past May, 2014. Because I have friends on Cape Cod, and some along the way, we made the Cape our first destination.
I lived on the Cape during the 1960’s and early 70’s, so had an vague idea of what it’s like here, but has it ever changed since those days. The quaint little villages Patty Page sang about have changed quit a bit, but it’s all for the good. There are more restaurants now than there used to be, just about every kind of food you’d like to find in this kind of environment. Seafood is prevalent from one end of the Cape to the other. Every kind of local fish including shellfish is available. Many small shops specialize in fried clams and lobster rolls. You can even charter a boat to take you out to catch your own. Besides seafood you will find everything from prime rib to pulled pork sandwiches. Ice cream shops are abundant, as are miniature golf ranges. There are several RV parks and tenting campgrounds also. More about them later.
One of the biggest attractions to the Cape has always been the beaches. The beautiful white sands and warm waters on the Atlantic side draw the biggest crowds, while the colder waters on the Bay side are also sought by hundreds of sun worshipers.
Not far from the Cape are other attractions such as Plymouth Rock, Fenway Park and the SS Constitution. For football fans there’s also Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play, but that happens in the fall.
We’ll be leaving the Cape late September, but will be posting again as we find other and more information for you before then. We hope you’ll plan your trips for next summer using some of the information we post for you. In the meantime, please return to this site often, as I’ll post every week or so as I gather more information. My next blog will cover information about the RV parks and tenting campgrounds as well as other topics.
For Now, Happy Trails.
