Trip to Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre and National Seashore

Thursday, August 18, 2011 A trip to the Drive-In
We borrowed Nana's new SUV. All five of us went to  the Lower Cape. We took an aborted run towards Chatham then  decided to head north towards Wellfleet.  We visited the gift barn in Eastham.  Then  we drove up to the Provinceland sand dunes which we encountered  next to the  ocean on the    North section of  Head of the meadow trail in Truro. It's also known as High Head Beach. I had been  there alone  back in May 1999, but  had not actually visited the ocean. We got to see at least a dozen  seals of two kinds (gray and harbor seals) out in the water. We walked back on the long sand road to our car. 

After leaving the dunes, we sat in traffic (listened to a remake of “Listen to your heart” and Pink’s song “Raise Your Glass” and finally made it the 8:00 showing of  Captain America and the first third of Cowboys and Aliens. Prior to the movie, I bought  food at the restaurant in front of the drive-in.  Stevie was pleasantly talkative although he did get scared by some fireworks.  Stevie  would not really watch the movie so we had to leave early before the second movie finished. On the way home Crystal talked about her experience working at the horse farm  back in 1999. This was the sixth time Crystal and I had been to the Drive-In together.
