Our first day in Cape Cod we were "blessed" with rain, so we decided, after moving into our motel, to drive to Provincetown,

 The rain brought out the colors of the trees so there were some advantages.

We had been told that the sand dunes at the end of the peninsula were large and on a good day you could take a jeep tour through them.  They were still beautiful from the road,

The main street of Provincetown was paved in brick, and the shops decorated for the fall Holiday.

There were all kinds of shops, restaurants and art galleries -

And window displays.

We also went to the town docks where the fishing fleet was base and enjoyed this statue of a humpback whale, the collection of colorful floats, and of course the working fishing boats.

Driving back "up-island" we stopped near dusk, at the Highland Light (also called the Cape Cod Light).  Built in 1857 it is the oldest and tallest of the many that were built over time to serve as warning beacons of the dangerous shoals off shore.

I loved the old weathered rail fence by the light and the marshes near-by
