Gardens on Commercial Street in Provincetown, MA

ImageImageImageImage

Every summer, my family spends a week in Provincetown, which is at the very tip of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Remote and breathtakingly beautiful, it is also America’s preeminent art colony, home to artists and writers including Tennessee Williams, Eugene O’Neill, Norman Mailer, Mark Rothko and Robert Motherwell. “Provincetown  is, has always been, an eccentrics’ sanctuary,” says Michael Cunningham, who has kept a summer house in Provincetown for years. “It is one of the places in the world you can disappear into. It is the Morocco of North America, the New Orleans of the north.” I especially love the gardens you pass along Commercial Street, the main road that runs the length of Provincetown. I took these pictures in August of this year.

My reading list on NOMAD-CHIC

ImageNOMAD-CHIC is a digital lifestyle platform that curates original content with a focus on travel. Navigating through the site is a journey in its own right – each time I do, I get lost in the beautiful collages and wistful, short articles. I am so excited that NOMAD-CHIC has featured me in their Reading List series.

“At Nomad, we believe in multiple forms of travel – a jaunt to the balmy west coast of our favorite Southeast Asian island, a trip to ‘5os Paris by way of Truffaut, and perhaps most enduringly, the transitive journey implicit in a truly great read.”
