Things To Do On the Beach

Wellfleet’s ocean beaches are renown for their beauty. The water, however, is extremely cold at this time of year. Sticking one’s toe in feels like there should be ice cubes floating beside the driftwood. In any case, tourists do not necessarily visit our beaches to swim. There are lots of other things to do. In fact, I can think of at least half a dozen:

1.) Sunbathe
2.) Watch surfers at high tide
3.) Beachcomb (not many shells these days, but look what the tide brought in!)
4.) Build sandcastles

5.) Fly a kite
6.) Watch the intrepid hang glide off the cliff at White Crest
7.) Walk or jog
8.) Admire the view
9.) Splash in the waves with a boggeyboard
10.) Slow down and enjoy life ….
