Bonus Post: Newcomb Hollow Beach, This Afternoon

Welcome to our 30th follower! Captain Jeff happens to have a business in Wellfleet. (Check out two fabulous photos of Newcomb Hollow Beach in the snow at his blog Outer Cape Chronicles) ... Sven has been cooped up for so long that he talked me into going to the beach today at low tide. There were some folks out walking, and some children playing. We also saw a man collecting discarded cans and bottles in the woods beside the parking lot. This is the first time I've seen anyone on Cape Cod collecting cans, presumably for cash, which was a bit of a shock. We often see people, who care for the environment, removing trash. Sven says this man was unkempt, which seems to indicate some Wellfleetians are in desperate straits. Most people are sheltered from the recession by retirement pensions, or fortunate enough to have second homes and no worries ... One perk of living here is being able to walk on a beach, 365 days of the year. If you follow this blog, you, too, love the place. What do you value most about Wellfleet?
