The Canteen

Last summer we visited Provincetown, MA. We took the morning ferry from Boston and spent the day in this cute little town. Art, unique shops and touristy places all gathered on one long street, alongside a very beautiful beach (rumour has it there are even better beaches nearby – we didn’t have enough time to check these out unfortunately).

As animal lovers, we had come across something on Google called the Bark Park which we obviously had to explore. What a let down. First of all it was impossible to find. Secondly, it was, literally, just a park for people to walk their dogs in. I’m not sure what I had expected (a field with hundreds of dogs running loose, maybe? Can’t a girl dream?) but anyway, unless you have a dog, don’t go there.

For food, we stopped by The Canteen. It was a beautiful day to sit outside!

I believe that is sangria in my glass. My memory has faded slightly.

We ordered crispy brussel sprouts in fish sauce for our starter/side. 10/10, would definitely recommend!

I had the cod banh-mi which was good. I’m not sure it would go down to history as one of the best banh-mis I’ve had, but it certainly did the trick.

My bf ordered the shrimp sliders, which were average at best. Nothing about these stood out. Avoid.

All in all, a good place to rest your legs if you’ve spent a hot afternoon walking up and down the streets of Provincetown. The outside back borders the beach and there is a ping pong table available for those of you with an athletic talent, something I was born without.

Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park

On our last night in Boston we had tickets to the Red Sox – Rangers game at Fenway Park. Our hotel was located just behind the baseball park so it was a perfect last outing. And what a beautiful night it was!

Compulsory pit stop: the bar

Pictures can’t do justice to how beautiful this ballpark is!

We had great luck with the weather as well on this perfectly warm summer night

Obviously a happy bunch

We left about two hours in and after checking the final score, we didn’t really miss that much

We saw Wally the Green Monster on our way out!

Such a great night, such a great area. I’m not at all a big baseball fan (or sports fan, period) but if I had to choose one sport, it would be baseball for sure. It’s great because it’s fairly slow, which means there is a lot of time for people watching, drinking beer, eating hot dogs and enjoying a nice summer night outside, whilst still being able to keep up with what’s happening down on the field.
