Weekend in Wellfleet

Wellfleet, Massachusetts

A last minute cancellation brought us to Cape Cod this weekend. We were able to find a home in the heart of Wellfleet whose owner was desperate to fill it — and after negotiating down the price, we hopped in the car for the 4-hour drive from New York.

We’ve visited this quiet town — located between the tip and elbow of the outer Cape and famous for its oysters — for several summers. This time, we sunned at Cahoon Hollow Beach on the National Seashore, went for freshwater swims at Great Pond, jogged along the active harbor and hiked through the salt marshes and sand dunes of Great Island.

It wasn’t all about outdoor activities though. On our second day, we window shopped in quiet Chatham and grabbed lunch in bustling Provincetown.

Driving home, we realized that a weekend on the Cape wasn’t nearly long enough.

But we enjoyed it no less.
