We Remember This Feeling! Nauset Beach & 84 Spectacular Degrees – Slideshow

Nauset Beach May
Written by Brian Tarcy

ORLEANS – It was 84 four degrees on May 2 at Nauset Beach!

For one perfect afternoon, just one day past months of winter and the perpetually fake spring of Cape Cod, with its taunting highs in the 50s, summer showed up. 

“It’s been six months,” said Jake Daley, 29, a landscaper from Brewster, who was taking the day off to relax on the beach with some cold libations.

“We’re hanging out,” said Daley’s brother, Robbie, 25, also a landscaper.

Nicole Chamberlain, 25, of Yarmouth, was with the Daley brothers, and she said, “I actually come to the beach every day, even in the winter, because I love it. But it is nice that the weather is finally nice.”

And Ed Ziemba of Orleans said he also walks the beach every day but, from his beach chair, he said, “It’s the first warm day to finally sit at the beach. I brought my lunch down. I brought my book down, and I’m just enjoying the weather.”

You Can't Sell Right Field

– A Novel By Brian Tarcy of Cape Cod Wave

“This is a terrific read. Brian Tarcy’s style and sense of humor make it easy reading, while his subject matter is of more importance than most communities realize. If you care about growth in your community and the lack of thoughtful planning, you owe it to yourself to read this thoughtful piece of fiction that is all too real in smaller communities in our country.”
