PERFECT WEATHER AT HOTEL HELL OR PERFECT HOTEL & WEATHER FROM HELL? (Garry Armstrong Reporting)

I’ve been to beautiful places and done nothing but watch the rain pour down for a full week. Talk about depressing. This time, it was a crummy hotel … but the weather was as good as it gets. Perfect. We could get up, go out and enjoy Cape Cod.

I have to admit: brilliant weather trumps luxury. Being trapped in a room, no matter how luxurious, isn’t much of a vacation and it definitely won’t offer much in the way of photo ops.

Mother nature rules. Especially when you are a photography enthusiast, even more if you are a couple and both of you are enthusiasts. So grab your gear. There’s a world out there we’re going to capture it!

  1. “Being trapped in a room, no matter how luxurious, isn’t much of a vacation and it definitely won’t offer much in the way of photo ops.”
    I couldn’t agree with you more.
    This is the room view that I had when I was on a business trip a few years back:

    This is where I ventured out to when I wasn’t at work:

  2. No, not a grand hotel. But we did have pretty decent weather. Matter of fact it got warmer over the course of our vacation. I think the photo shoots were productive and satisfying. Our bodies — including a recent pratfall by yours truly — are still going through PTS. Time to find “Motel Hell” starring Rory Calhoun to put things in perspective.

  3. I guess the hotel was just a base, somewhere to sleep. The real holiday was spent during the days when you were out and about taking all your fantastic photos.
    Of course, great weather and a great hotel would have been the ideal but I guess it doesn’t always work out that way.

    • Usually, we’ve been very lucky with accomodations … not however equally lucky with the weather. We stayed in one lovely place way up atop the White Mountains in New Hampshire and when we looked out the windows (which is all we could do in the driving rain), we couldn’t see anything because we were IN the clouds. Of course, if you are going to be trapped in a hotel room, nice to be comfortable.

      Mostly, we’ve had at least decent weather and frequently gorgeous accomodations. This year, we got AAA weather and zero star lodgings. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Cape look more beautiful.

      I could have lived without the backhoe and dump truck every morning.
