I know you think I am traveling out of the country when in fact it is a Passport Stamp in my National Park Passport book. For those of you who don't already know about it ~ the National Park Service has a book or notebook you can purchase along with stamp collections they release every year (since 1986) of different parks. Well when you visit a National Park, Monument, National Seashore, anything sponsored by the NPS you can get a cancellation stamp in your book. Also on the blank pages I get other stamps ~ visitor centers, site seeing places and even Post office. OK now here is why the title ~ we got a stamp at the Cape Cod National Seashore.... It is a fun thing to do!
A great hobbie for travelers!!
So we headed off early in the morning for the Cape Cod National Seashore which runs from Eastham to Provincetown on the cape. Our first stop along the way was the NP Visitor Center located in Eastham. There we saw a movie on the development of the Cape and how the Ice Age played an important roll in it its shape and lakes... They also had exhibits that you could stroll through and learn the different sea creatures, birds and plant life that is in the area. After that we picked up our National Park map and headed out to explore. Oh yes and got our stamp♥ Also along the way we ran into several Lighthouses which we always enjoy visiting.

Of course you can't visit Cape Cod without over indulging in Seafood ~ Especially Clams, Lobster and famous Clam Chowder ~ so todays feast was at the very popular Arnold's Lobster & Clam Shack in Eastham. Very close to the Cape Cod National Park Visitors Center. This place is a must when you visit Cape Cod. Now be forewarned ~ go early to beat the crowds and bring cash because they don't accept credit cards BUT they are well worth it all. It is a Calm Shack that grew & grew....
|Yes you are seeing clear ~ that is a very yummy 3# lobster with drawn butter ♥|
You get a ton of food and it is by far the best seafood we have had on this trip!!!
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
