Canal Generating Plant Sunset – Slideshow

Canal Generating Plant Sunset
Written by Brian Tarcy

SANDWICH – Who says the Canal Generating Plant is ugly? Oh yeah, that would be us almost every time we see it.

We have always very much un-admired the big green buidling with its prominent smokestack. 

But there it was yesterday, with a perfect sunset behind it. What could we do, but admire what we were looking at? It wasn’t going anywhere. It took this sunset, after decades on Cape Cod, for us to reach acceptance with this ugly building.

So here is a sunset at and near the unspectacular power plant near the quite spectacular Cape Cod Canal.
