A Yarmouth Sunset at Grey’s Beach on Cape Cod.
This was my first visit to the beach even though
I’ve been coming to the Cape since the 1980’s.
I have to wonder what else have I missed.
Morning Fog in Provincetown.
Boats, a bird and a red ball covered in the Cape Cod Bay.
The photograph was made close to MacMillan Pier.
My first visit to Cape Cod was in August 1966. I was 10. I stayed at the Vista Del Mar motel in North Truro. The motel was owned by an Aunt and Uncle. In 1980 I returned to Provincetown with the woman who would become my wife. Many visits were made over the next 10 years only slowing when kids and a house came along. A few years ago we decided it was time to return. It has been wonderful.
But one “lack of action” annoys the heck out of me. It wasn’t until a visit in 2015 when I finally asked a local about my Aunt and Uncle’s motel. He told me that it had been abandoned for years and torn down in 2014. He provided directions where I could see where it was.
The reason I am annoyed is that I could have seen the place if I only asked earlier. I had many years to do it, but I didn’t.

A solitary boat on Cape Cod Bay.
It floated gently on the water by Provincetown.
Sunset and the Wood End Lighthouse.
A perfect evening and a beautiful sunset.
In 1987 fog in Provincetown covered the MacMillan Pier.
Fisherman on the platform and a sinking ship in the harbor
gave rise to thoughts of sea creatures rising up or monsters attacking.
Thankfully the only matter that arose was hunger. Time for breakfast.
A sinking ship just off the Provincetown Pier in Cape Cod.
The photograph was made in April 1989.
The Wood End Lighthouse in Provincetown.
If you look closely, two people can be seen walking the stone jetty.
