Gray's Beach, Bass Hole and a Boardwalk

 After leaving Scusset, I jetted down to Yarmouth to check out their boardwalk at Gray's Beach/Bass Hole.  I didn't even know there was a boardwalk in Yarmouth till last year.  Had to check it out.   


Osprey nest

Gray's Beach which is really crappy.....although I can see going there in summer to cross to the nicer beaches at low tide when the water is warm.

Walked down to the end of the boardwalk.

I have no idea how to access the bay side beaches from here....I'll have to check some maps and see.


 There were thousands of minnows in this pool.  



I wish the water was as warm as it looked.






 Assuming this was an old pier, or maybe part of the boardwalk at one time.

Shadow in the water.

Looking back towards the parking lot.

I guess this area is Bass Hole.



 Saw some quahoggers digging in the shallow water.


And one silly German shepherd that plopped his butt down in the water.

I'm glad I saw it, and I hear that the sunset view is outstanding but I won't be headed down there for either sunset or sunrise.  Sandwich's boardwalk is way better though. 

Assume there will be boats here in a few days or weeks.



One more off the Local Bucket List!

  2. You are so lucky to live where you do. We have some nice parks to hike around but nothing like a beach! They will never compare to beaches! Nice pictures!

    1. Thanks Kathy! Pretty soon I'll be avoiding the beaches due to all the crowds.

  3. Wow. Well, you know me and my creepy crime show love. The first thing I thought of was a dumping ground for bodies. The only way you would catch me there is on a day that was highly populated or if I went with a group! And what the hell is a quahogger??? - Great photos of course, as always, but creepy in that "dead body dumping ground" sort of way. Hahahahaha.

    1. hahahaha Well make sure you dump them on the outgoing tide. Quahogs are sea clams, and very popular to dig here. My dad used to go quahogging and Russell has been kicking around getting a commercial license to make extra money on the weekends. We have his huge bullrake here at the house. Oh, it's pronounced 'CO-hog'.

    1. Not as long as Sandwich's boardwalk! I love the osprey nests too. I don't recall seeing any the first time I lived here.
