A Dozen Things to do in Wellfleet

We have been cleaning, and cooking, and shopping, and now waiting, waiting, waiting for our guests to arrive. I hear there has been much erosion at the beach, but have not been able to get out to see. In the meantime, here's a countdown of a dozen things to do in our great little town during the summer (and please let me know if you have a favorite activity that I have left out):

Twelve: See what the Cape used to look like at the Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail (apply bug spray for the mosquitoes).
Eleven: Watch birds at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary (apply bug spray for the ticks).
Ten: Fly a kite on one of our great beaches (apply sun screen if the sun ever comes out.)
Nine: Participate in an activity with a park ranger from the National Seashore or take a guided cruise of Wellfleet Harbor, above.
Eight: Explore Wellfleet’s art galleries and, if it’s Saturday night, attend the opening of an exhibit.
Seven: Sip sangria on the terrace at Winslow’s Tavern or a smoothie at The Juice and watch the people go by.
Six: See a play at Wellfleet Harbor Actors’ Theater (WHAT)
Five: Pick up pretty shells at Duck Harbor Beach.
Four: Go to the Flea Market during the day and come back for the drive-in movie at night.
Three: Rent a kayak or canoe at Gull Pond and visit three ponds.
Two: Swim in the bay at high tide.
One: Have a picnic at the one of our Atlantic beaches and enjoy the waves at low tide.
