Pah Wah Point Conservation Area, Orleans – Slideshow

Pah Wah Point Conservation Area, Orleans
Written by Brian Tarcy

ORLEANS – Just off of Namequoit Road, we found the 12-acre Pah Wah Point Conservation Area, and took a quick, fun hike that brought us past Pah Wah Pond out to a spectacular view of Little Pleasant Bay.

It was late afternoon under a bright sun, and the shadows were growing long, painting the scene with the spirit of ephemera. Of course, that is the nature of Cape Cod.

This is an ever-changing place. There are tides, ocean-sensitive weather, and four very distinct New England seasons.

Thus, a walk in a place like this can differ by the day and, as reflected by those fore-mentioned shadows, by the hour.

Our walk on Saturday afternoon was one of solitude and reflection. Get it while you can. Summer and tourists are coming.

But maybe a new way of living without so much fear is also on the way.

For now, we continue to social distance and enjoy it because there are places on Cape Cod such as the Pah Wah Point Conservation Area.
