Salty Air Scenic Slide Shows

Chapin Beach Sunset – A Slideshow

Written by Brian Tarcy

DENNIS – Sometimes, the soul needs a Cape Cod sunset. On deserted Chapin Beach, with the world shifting from light to darkness, there are lines in the sand that have been drawn by Cape Cod Wave’s favorite artist.

As the season of the tourists winds down, sunsets gets lonelier and more profound here on Cape Cod.

There is darkness in this sunset, and there is light. One appears to be chasing the other.

  • I was on the radio last night at and on the way there I saw, out of the corner of my eye, to the left, as I was going by Black Fish Creek, “Orange & Peach”. When I twisted my head as far as I could to the left side, over my shoulder, I saw the most perfect egg yolk colored sun, as crystal clear as could be. Also saw two vehicles parked on the side of the road, owners taking pictures at that most sunset abundant viewing place. “WOW” was all I could say, wishing I could stop too! I would say that that sunset, last night Dec. 15th, 2014, was the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. As time went by as I approached Provincetown, what was left was a narrow horizontal stripe of peach taking up the whole horizon, and above was a dark gray sky.
