Sunset at the Great Sippewissett Marsh, Falmouth – Slideshow

Great Sippewissett Marsh sunset
Written by Brian Tarcy

FALMOUTH – Sunsets are always magical on Cape Cod but when the weather warms up, as it recently has, the experience goes up a level.

And so when we recently walked the Shining Sea Bikeway from Old Dock Road to the Great Sippewissett Marsh at dusk, we were not disappointed.

While the bike path, running from Woods Hole to North Falmouth, has many spectacular stretches, including along Vineyard Sound, the Great Sippewissett Marsh has always been a favorite.

Seeing the sunset over it is a treat. And then, to top the night off, a near full moon was rising behind me on the walk back to Old Dock Road.
