We are exploring the cape today and headed to Eastman to the Cape Cod Natl Seashore Salt Pond visitors center. We watched a movie about how the Cape was formed and how it’s constantly changing. We checked out the museum and then took a hike.
We hiked the 1 ½ mile Nauset Marsh Trail. It went along a salt pond and then up to an overlook of the Atlantic. Now we drove up to the Wellfleet part of the park. We had a nice picnic lunch and then John did a 4 ½ mile hike along the bluffs and then down to the beach. Along the way he saw lots of birds and a lot of seals. He was able to wade out and get pretty close to them. When he got back we took a drive to another overlook and then a short hike down to the bay. We saw more seals hanging out.
We stopped at golf bar for a beer and to overlook the bay. The tide was going out and the boats were sitting on the ground. We decided to head back to Sand Dollar Bar and Grill. It’s a comfortable place with live music, good drinks and food. Sean Brennan was playing guitar and singing. He played harmonica on a couple songs. We had some cocktails, tried the stuffed Quahog Clam and had a really good lobster roll.
