Patchie [Recaps]: Cape Cod - Pizza & Truro
The flea market was mildly disappointing, but it's always hit or miss and sadly this year was just a miss. The camera stayed in the car and we didn't last very long because it was in the middle of a large parking lot and was pretty darn hot. Both of us did manage to find a couple things however!
We started our trek up to Truro from Wellfleet, but realized we hadn't timed things very well - the vineyard only gave 2 tours a day and at that pace would arrive about five minutes after the first one started. The only logical explanation was to stop for lunch at one of my favorite places that we used to hit yearly, but I had missed in the last year or so - Rookies!
The big appeal of Rookies is their lobster pizza - and that probably sounds gross and a lot of people make a face when I talk about it. But I promise, it's pretty darn delicious. And the business hasn't changed at all since I was five years old sitting next to my grandfather and watching the different waitress lights light up and trying to guess which was ours. This is also where grandpa taught me how to shoot a wrapper off the end of a straw.
Afterwards we jumped back in the car and shot up the road. Once we hit Truro we realized that we were going to still be pretty early for the next vineyard tour, so we took a detour to Highland light, which I blogged about a couple years ago too!
So now comes the part where The Boy and I totally pull an Us. We get to the vineyard, which is super cute. We're still early for the tour. They schedule out their tastings, and one was about to start. We asked if we had time before the tour and they said "totally!"
We liked of the wines but knew we couldn't blow the rest of our vacation budget on libations, so we opted for two bottles. We're saving them for this week while we're house sitting! After taking our own little tour we jumped back in the car and drove a little bit further to Provincetown. That post to come sometime later today - I didn't want to completely blow you up with pictures all at once!
