Wellfleet Fun in the Sun

There were already kids out at LeCount Beach yesterday, enjoying the soft breezes and warm temperature. Today I heard that usually two-thirds of all Americans take a vacation, but this year only one-half plan to get away due to the economic crisis. What a difference it makes to spend a few days in a beautiful place! The French call it "changer d'air," and I have become convinced that seeing new things, smelling new smells, and being in a totally different "air" does work wonders. With Memorial Day Weekend, the season traditionally begins in Wellfleet. The Beachcomber, at Cahoon Hollow Beach, is now open for business.
