Living On The Edge Of The Dunes In Wellfleet On Cape Cod

We had read about a house sitting right on top of the dunes in Wellfleet on Cape Cod that is so close to the edge that it is in danger of being swalowed up in a big storm. So we went to investigate.



This house is really close to the edge as you can see in the photograph. It has been in the family for 60 years and was 150 feet farther away from the ocean at that time. We calculated that the ocean has eroded about  2-3 feet of the sand dunes each year since then. Unbelievable what Mother Nature can do.

They are moving the house 15 feet back. Sure hope they can get another few years out of that gorgeous location!


Beautiful Photograph Of White Crest Beach In Wellfleet On Cape Cod

Yesterday was such a beautiful day at White Crest Beach in Wellfleet on Cape Cod. There was a little breeze so the waves were kicking in and the skies were glorious!

If you have never been to White Crest, this photograph was taken about 70 feet up on the dunes overlooking the ocean.

Pretty, don’t you think?
