Long Point Provincetown

Long Point ProvincetownWhile in Provincetown this weekend, I kayaked out to  Long Point Lighthouse.  Long Point is the final tip of Cape Cod where the land curls back and creates a natural harbor for Provincetown. The Long Point Light House was built in 1827 and is a landmark you can see from shore as well as when arriving by ferry from Boston.  The easiest way to visit Long Point is by taking a water taxi but kayaking is a lot of fun and despite some strong headwinds, I was able to make it there in less than an hour.

Kayaking proved to be a good work out and on the way I was able to view some of the impressive yachts moored in the harbor and catch some glimpses of the local wildlife, including a seal that watched me with curiosity for a good 3-4 minutes.  I was ill equipped to snap photos but feel like I may be better prepared next time so I can hopefully share some of these experiences. Here are a few photos that I snapped with my phone of Long Point Lighthouse in Ptown. Long Point Provincetown trailLong Point Light House

  1. Kayaking is my favorite activity while in town. I have some great photos from my trips to and from Herring Cove. The wildlife is quite surprising.


  2. Author Mabel Dodge Luhan lived in an off shore lighthouse before 1920. The Lighthouse was lusted after by Walter Chrysler. He traded house in town for it. Mabel rowed all her furniture and such back. H move a few things in. Major storm came up-Lighthouse sank. From “Intimate Memories”
