Kite Surfer At First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod


This Kite Surfer was surfing at low tide at First Encounter Beach. It was so cool! You can see the sandbars in front of him and behind him. He was surfing on the water in between. He must’ve been pretty good to do that!

It’s so much fun to see the kite surfers out at anytime of the year when it’s windy. They just put on their wet suits and go out and have a blast!

First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod At Low Tide

It was a beautiful day to take a walk on First Encounter Beach on Cape Cod. The tides were low so you could walk way out on the flats.

First Encounter Beach is a place with historic significance. It was so named because it is the site of the first encounter between Native Americans and the Pilgrims prior to their settling in Plymouth.

Spectacular Sunset At First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod Bay On Cape Cod

I was driving home from a presentation on the Blizzard of 1978 at the Eastham Historical Society when I saw that the sunset was going to be special. I took a right and went to First Encounter Beach on Cape Cod Bay. The parking lot was packed.

I wondered if there was a concert on the beach or some other activity going on. I got one of the last parking spots. Only when I got out of my car and walked down to the beach did I realize that everyone there came to see the spectacular sunset! People were sitting on the beach, swimming and just hanging out waiting for that sun to dip below the horizon.

Pretty, don’t you think?
