Quite a thunderstorm here last night, bringing much needed rain. Lightning lit up the sky and thunder rumbled for about an hour. Thunderstorms do not seem to roll through the way they do on the mainland. They roll around, as if Wellfleet’s unique location between ocean and bay provided a barrier of sorts. Now all is peaceful again. Since I featured Dyer and Gull ponds in recent blogs, here is a photo of Great Pond, on Cahoon Hollow Road, another blissfully quiet kettle pond that prods the visitor to meditation.
