Badly behind on my planned day trips this spring! However, I finally managed to make time to head up to Wellfleet. Marsha & Susan came with me and we had a great time and a lot of laughs. It was just absolutely perfect out.
This little lighthouse is near Susan's house in Eastham.
Wellfleet is the next town up from her, and 2 towns below Provincetown.
First place we started was at Uncle Tim's Bridge.
The tide was dead low and so the air was filled with the smell of the marshes.
The parking area for the bridge was a little ways down the road.
Loved this place!
We hung over the rails and watched all the crabs run around. Some of the crabs have one claw bigger than the other and those are called fiddler crabs.
We were going to walk around the path that encircles the island, but some weird guy came up to us and was attempting to flirt...he was a little odd, probably harmless, but it made us so uncomfortable that we let him go ahead of us, we turned around and went back. I'm sure the three of us could've fought him off but we didn't want to take that chance.
Here's an aerial map. The island kinda looks like a geoduck clam. (google it)
