A Martini Glass & More In Brewster – VIDEO + Slideshow

Flax Pond
Written by Brian Tarcy

BREWSTER – How cold was it on Valentines Day? Even Flax Pond was making itself a drink. We have evidence.

Flax Pond in Nickerson State Park presented ice and water mixed with a blue sky, a frozen brain and numb fingers. When it was delivered to us, it looked like this.

We vaguely recall a bartender recommending a walk at this place after we had already gone to Breakwater Beach…



We are pretty sure the bartender only served us water and really good chowder. Nevertheless, our brains were seeing things that we sort of hoped weren’t real.

Watch the video again, and you’ll understand. With that rattling around in our head, we visited Flax Pond.
