Two Sides Of The Bridge At Old Silver Beach – Slideshow

Old Silver July
Written by Brian Tarcy


NORTH FALMOUTH – Well, it is definitely July. It’s crowded, but if you look you can find some space. Sometimes, you don’t have to look too far.

Old Silver Beach is divided between a tourist side and a resident’s side by the Herring Brook. The two sides are generally the same, beautiful and crowded.

There is a Quaker Road bridge that goes over the Herring Brook. The two sides of the bridge on Sunday at 4 PM were quite different.

On the beach, the summertime throng was gathered. There was a colorful display of umbrellas, bathing suits, inflatables, and even a flying football. It was densely packed, and a lifeguard was vigilant.

Across the street, a few folks relaxed at a much slower pace in the marsh.

All of this, a few steps apart. This is Cape Cod.

And this is definitely July.
