It was the perfect day and the perfect place for the paragliders to set up and show everyone what they do! And, were they good! It was so much fun to watch them maneuver up and down the beach… over the water and over the dunes. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
In doing some reading, I did not realize that White Crest is one of the few approved “launching sites” in Massachusetts for paragliders and hang gliders. How cool… and right in our back yard!
I loved these 2 photographs of their colorful para gliders. The sky, as well as the para gliders, was amazing!
The past few days have been so windy that we decided to take a drive to Wellfleet and see if there were any good photo ops. When we got to White Crest, we were pleasantly surprised. There was a hang glider setting up in the corner of the parking lot and a handful of para gliders getting their gear ready. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)
It was a gorgeous day for any windy sport and we just happened to be there. It was so much fun watching them take off and then do all of their maneuvers. They were very experienced!
So cool, don’t you think?
White Crest Beach in Wellfleet is always spectacular. The views are unbelievable and are so “Cape Cod!” (Click on blog link to see full photo.)
I love the dunes… they are so high and so impressive. Have you ever been to White Crest Beach?
Phil had a very good friend who used to own a little cottage high on the dunes in Wellfleet. The cottage was small but the views were unbelievable!
He started working with Ray Kroc at McDonald’s at the very beginning. We would sit outside his cottage overlooking White Crest Beach and reminisce about McDonald’ when it first started. He had such great stories.
As the dunes eroded over the years and changed the shoreline, the cottage eventually fell into the ocean. We were living in Colorado at the time so we didn’t find out about it until we moved back east. We were able to locate where it was and this would have been his view if the cottage was still there.
The good news for Frank was that he sold it 2 years before it fell into the ocean!
Pretty amazing, don’t you think?
White Crest Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod with its huge sand dunes that are 40-50 feet high. I loved the colors of the clouds and the sky.
What do you think?
It was a gorgeous, sunny day at White Crest Beach in Wellfleet, very warm for late November. The shadows were starting across the high, high dunes as the afternoon sun was getting lower. Just spectacular, don’t you think?
I picked this photograph to post today in honor of Phil’s birthday which is today. This was his favorite beach to surf back in his surfing days. So, Happy Birthday, Phil, may your memories here be full! And may you have an awesome day!
