HARWICH – Sometimes a good dose of Cape Cod is good for the soul. So on a bright, chilly Wednesday, I found my way to Harwich and began walking the Cape Cod Rail Trail on a great stretch past three ponds and into Brewster.
I walked past past Hinkleys Pond, Seymour Pond and Long Pond, taking the time to check out the reflection of the sky on the water.
It was a perfect walk. It was mostly secluded. The air was crisp, and a cold wind danced around a couple of times. But walking parallel to Pleasant Lake Avenue made me appreciate the person who named that road.
I received a couple of friendly nods from bikers or walkers, but I spent most of the time just walking and taking it all in.
It was nice to be in nature, away from the emerging holiday craziness that is sure to build for the next two months. Shop if you must. I’ll be out walking.

“This is a terrific read. Brian Tarcy’s style and sense of humor make it easy reading, while his subject matter is of more importance than most communities realize. If you care about growth in your community and the lack of thoughtful planning, you owe it to yourself to read this though.”
