Exploring Massachusetts’ Cape Cod National Seashore
After a quick break to show you some of our automotive work from last weekend’s Cars and Coffee, I’m digging back into our summer archives for the next installment our series – this time featuring the wind-swept shores of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod National Seashore. Despite having grown up only 20 miles from the Massachusetts border and, traffic permitting (which it often doesn’t) about an hour and a half from Cape Cod – our first trip to the Massachusetts’ geographic forearm was only a few winters ago, when family had briefly lived there. However, it was a quick visit, and we didn’t get to see much of the Cape or any of its famous seashore. But thankfully, that all changed this summer, as we took an overnight trip to explore the quaint villages and soaring dunes that line the easternmost bits of Massachusetts.
If you’ve followed our blog for any time, you probably know how much we enjoy lighthouses, and with several lighthouses in and around the seashore, we made sure to stop at several. If you’ve ever had a bag of Cape Cod chips, chances are the top photo looks a bit familiar. The brightly-colored Nauset Light was the model for the bag – and a picturesque model at that! Best of all, the lighthouse is regularly open for tours thanks to the organization that cares for the historic structure. While on the Cape, we also visited Chatham Light, the decommissioned Three Sisters Light (which once stood where Nauset Light now resides), and finally Highland Light.
But what if lighthouses aren’t your thing? Well, the Cape still has plenty to offer, from great restaurants and shops, sandy beaches, wild seals and rare birds, and historic sites like the first Marconi wireless station and the Pilgrim’s Monument, noting the site of the Pilgrim’s first landing in the New World.
