It's Bus Season in Eastham

I call it our 'secret summer'. September and October have significantly diminished traffic, warmer weather, and most of the other benefits of summer on Cape Cod.  But Labor Day starts the season I call 'Bus Season'. During bus season there is a steady stream on large tour buses traveling up Route 6, presumably heading for P-Town. Along the way, they stop at the Eastham windmill, the Nauset Lighthouse, and a gift shop or two. I've seen as many as 3 buses at the windmill and as many as 5 at the Red Barn Gift Shop.

Certainly, the buses bring tourist dollars to our economy. To imagine 5 buses of tourists (at 50-60 per bus)inside that small gift shop boggles my mind.
