Nauset Light Beach – Celebrating Sunrise

Brian Tarcy
Written by Brian Tarcy

EASTHAM – It’s the same old same old on Nauset Light Beach, where the sun rises in the east over the ocean. This is how the day begins on Cape Cod. Vast. Empty. Breathtaking.

While there is a rhythm to every morning, the glory of sunrise here feels something like a private celebration.

The lighthouse is all decked out for Christmas. It just another reminder that a morning like this is the truest gift of all.
