If you want to see “Cape Cod dunes,” White Crest Beach is the place to go. The dunes are huge and just magnificent. You can see that steep path down to the water. And look at those views!
Not too many people this time of the year… so peaceful.
I loved this simple photograph of the windblown dune at First Encounter Beach in Eastham, Most of the footprints have been blown away. I took several photos of this dune. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)
I couldn’t decide if I liked the 1st one or the 2nd one better. The 2nd one tells a much different story as you can see the windblown tree and bushes with branches only on one side and the dramatic clouds in the sky.
Which one do you like better?
There are many beaches on Bay Cod Bay, as well as the Atlantic Ocean, in Eastham on Cape Cod. As you go from Orleans, to Eastham out to Wellfleet, the dunes get steeper and steeper.
I took this photograph at low tide on the beach in Eastham but closer to Wellfleet. It was amazing how tall the sand dunes were, compared to the other beaches in Eastham.
So pretty with the sun starting to go down, don’t you think?
