Another Perfect Bench In Wellfleet On Cape Cod.

If you’ve ever hiked at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, you know there are many different benches on the trails for you to sit and relax and just enjoy the views. I especially liked this one on the Bay View Trail looking out over the salt marsh toward Wellfleet Harbor.

Have you ever sat on one of those benches?

Future High Tides At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod.

When we hike at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and want to go out to the outer beach across the boardwalk on the salt marsh, we always look at the tide charts to make sure it is not near high tide. We got stuck a few years ago in February and ended up wading in, rolling up our jeans and holding our shoes. Thank goodness it was a warm day but the water was still pretty cold.

A few summers ago they put in new markers where they think the tides will be in future years as they seem to be getting higher each year. You can see where they think high tide will be in 2075. Each marker represents about 25 years. Wow! It’s amazing how high the tides might rise with the warming climate.

It is a wonderful place to go for a hike alone or with the whole family as there are many different types of trails. On the  Bay View Trail you can see the salt marsh, the harbor and take a nice walk through the woods along the water’s edge.
