Pickerel Cove Wakeby Pond – Slideshow

Written by Brian Tarcy

Pickeral CoveWe found this empty path that seemed to go a good mile through the woods of Mashpee, past a polka dot shed, to Pickerel Cove at Wakeby Pond, just before it merges into Mashpee Pond.

The trees grew over the water – literally.
