Fourth of July Week in Provincetown
Arguably Provincetown’s busiest week of the year, July 4th brings visitors from all over the world to enjoy all the town and surrounding area has to offer. We were out sailing every day and enjoying every Moment. Our special offering of the week was a 6-10PM fireworks sail, where we got to watch the sun set over Provincetown, while under sail and then see the fireworks fly above.
We managed to fit in walking in the Provincetown Independence Day Parade with our signs, bikes and were throwing out lifesavers to the crowd.
Throughout the week, Moment and Momento both flew extra American flags to celebrate the Americana that Cape Cod so strongly embodies. Moment’s flag was so large that it actually snapped the line holding it two separate times, causing a few trips up the mast in a bosun’s chair. The third time was a charm and in addition to some beautiful photography from Momento, the flag remained intact and flew proudly in the harbor.
On our July 4th day sail, we experienced a very large school of dolphins swimming together just outside Provincetown Harbor. It was quite a site to see them on all sides of the boat and changing direction as a unit. Once they were safely back out to sea, we dropped sails and enjoyed a summer afternoon swim as Moment drifted about.
