Coonamesett Snow, Solitude & Ducks On The Pond – Slideshow

Coonamessett Pond

HATCHVILLE – On a cold windless morning 10 days before Christmas, while the world bustled and the holiday sellers hustled, we found ourselves chasing solitude at Coonamessett Pond.

Solitude in nature on Cape Cod at any time of year is special. At this time of year, it’s necessary.

To get there, we walked along a fairway at Cape Cod Country Club, and then turned right into the woods.

Days after a few inches of snow, it remained fluffy as we walked. There were a few footprints, but no one in sight. Except for ducks. There were several ducks. And so we pondered ducks.
