Digging through my archives I saw that I wrote this elsewhere about Cape Cod a few years ago during my first visit:
I have been told that the part of Cape Cod where I am staying is considered the “Irish Riviera.” I’m not sure whether this is based on a misunderstanding of what comprises the Riviera or the Riviera has been knocked down a few notches over the years. I don’t think I have ever seen a denser concentration of ice cream, pizza, and fried seafood than here. Seeing signs like “Finest Quality Fried Seafood” is laughable. The food here is, in a word, shit.
I just realized that we haven’t been back since, and feel no particular desire to do so.
