The View at Cahoon Hollow in Winter

What a lark to be able to drive up to the ocean in less than five minutes! The view from Cahoon Hollow is always stupendous. Its dune must be the most spectacular on Cape Cod. Standing in the empty parking lot always makes me think of the Cahoon Hollow fans who spend their week of vacation on the beach, addicts really. They dress in Cahoon Hollow gear, too. Caps and T-shirts. To them, the view from this spot is priceless, like in the Mastercard ad, inspiring dreams of summer all winter long. On the way back down Long Pond Road, I catch a glimpse of the brilliant sunshine reflecting off the waves. It shimmers and sparkles like diamonds. At such times, we feel very fortunate to live in beautiful Wellfleet!
