I was so surprised when I went to Nauset Beach the other day at low tide and saw how high the water comes up at high tide. You can see in the photographs that the water is almost up to the dunes. And with the area roped off for shorebird nesting, there isn’t much room at all for beach-goers when the tide comes in. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
It will be interesting to see how it all plays out this summer, especially with Nauset Light Beach having very limited parking because of delays in building their new restrooms. I’m sure Nauset Beach will get a good increase of beach-lovers!
