My next solo adventure was 10 days in Boston. I stayed at the HI Boston, not only is it fantastic accommodation, but the budget then allowed me to splash out on a few nights of luxury accommodation on Cape Cod. I’ve always wanted to visit CC, maybe it’s the romance of those Hopper paintings. I took the high speed ferry out to Provincetown and stayed at The Salt House Inn. Just as we entered PTown harbour at Long Point, we spotted a whole pod of whales surfacing the water. I spent a few days here eating lobster rolls, sitting in the cape sand dunes and shopping tiny boutiques on Commercial Street. Then I took trips out to Martha’s Vineyard, along the Maine coast to Kennebunkport & Salem, to visit the Witch Museum.
