Sunset At First Encounter Beach, Eastham – Slideshow

Sunset First Encounter Beach
Written by Brian Tarcy

EASTHAM – Every time I go to First Encounter Beach, where the Pilgrims had their first encounter with Native Americans, I always wonder the same thing: Why in the world did the Pilgrims move on from here to Plymouth.

It’s so nice here.

Surely, if they saw a sunset they would have stuck around.

Well, I did. And I am glad I did.
