Ballston Beach In Truro On Cape Cod

“On March 9 of 2013 Atlantic Hurricane cut a 100-foot wide opening in the narrow barrier dune at Ballston Beach in Truro, on Cape Cod. Tons of seawater surged into the freshwater marshes of the upper Pamet River eventually reaching Route 6, and briefly turning the end of Cape Cod into an island.”

What an incredible story! I took this first photograph from the summit above Ballston Beach on the Pamet Trail. You can see where the dunes were swept away and the water went inland. I took the 2nd photograph a few weeks ago while walking on Ballston Beach with my son. It is expansive!

Mother Nature always does her own thing… incredible, at times!
