We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A richly illustrated full-color guide to the unique plants, wildlife, and environments of Cape Cod and the other nearby “Outer Lands” that face the Atlantic Ocean
OK, we are Cape Codders, and thus biased. But if you know of any getaway place so good for salt air and piney smell, sailing, fishing, hunting (deer, duck and pheasant), gardening (long growing season on the ocean), biking, hiking, dining on day-fresh seafood and Wellfleet Oysters, tell me about it.
Besides that, there is no rich people flavor like Palm Beach, the Islands, Spring Lake, Watch Hill, and the Hamptons. Them folks we have on the outer Cape are very low-profile. It's a Maserati and Porsche-free zone, but you have to deal with "F-Trump" bumper stickers. Whatever. It's a free country, thank God.
I never get invited to Hamptons parties anyway.
Just no skiing on the Cape, but not too far from it. Beautifully desolate and wet in winter, of course, without any real snow but them's the breaks. You can get out and shoot a duck for supper.
While your list of delights that can be had nowhere other than Cape Cod is challenging, I think you are fudging a bit when you include "Wellfleet Oysters". They tend to be freshly had only in Wellfleet.
As for the remainder of the list, well, we can come fairly close in Northern California. Except for that Wellfleet Oysters" thing. How about we drop the Oysters and put in Pacific Abalone?
I was there about a year and a half ago. I only had a day so it was a speed trip out to the lighthouse and because of you, a cruise through Wellfleet. I had a very memorable excellent meal just south of there on the hwy who's name I cannot recall but the Chowder and the flourless Chocolate cake and their own local beer sent me to the moon. Little roadhouse type place. Awesome! Too bad I'll not return in this life. I wish I had more time there
