A few days ago, the weather warm warm and almost spring-like. And then it snowed and it looked like winter again. These snow-covered moorings from last weekend are still waiting for a glimpse of warmer weather to get put back out in the harbor for the anxious boaters!
I loved these winter photographs… what do you think?
No matter which direction you turn, the views at Wellfleet Harbor are just gorgeous. We parked our car here and this was our view for a picnic lunch.
It doesn’t get much prettier, do you think?
We stopped at Wellfleet Harbor for a picnic the other day and it was just beautiful. I loved this photograph of the sailboats at the dock.
What do you think?
Across the harbor from the Wellfleet Pier is a really cool jetty and beach that look to be open to the public. I’m not sure if you need a sticker in the summer. We decided to take a ride over and to look around.
Right next to the parking lot is a huge pile of shells… about 2-3 feet high. Without looking, I figured they had to be Oyster shells as Wellfleet is famous for its Wellfleet Oysters. But when looking closer, they are Scallop shells. Hmmm. Why would there be a huge pile of Scallop shells there? It looks to be a place where people can launch their smaller boats from the beach. But how did the Scallop shells get there? And why were they there? Is Wellfleet known for its Scallops too?
I did a little research and learned that the fishermen usually shuck the fresh scallops before selling them to the restaurants. But I couldn’t find out much more than that.
Does anyone know the answer as to why they are there? It would be really cool to find out!
The fishing boats were all docked at Wellfleet Harbor the other afternoon. They must have already come back in with their haul of fish.
I couldn’t decide which photograph I liked better… the one in black and white or the color one. What do you think?
