WELLFLEET – The tide shifts on the Outer Cape are especially interesting. On Saturday on our way to see a play by the talented Harbor Stage Company, we visited Wellfleet Harbor and then walked to nearby Mayo Beach.
Here is a sample of what we saw.
It was an hour or so before low tide at this working harbor, and no big boat was going out or coming in at that point. With a tide that drops about a dozen feet, there are windows of opportunity, and also the times that require long ladders to climb down from the dock to a boat.
Over by Mayo Beach with the tide way out, we saw an oyster farmer dragging his work sled to his oyster grant – one of many local farmers growing the most delicious oysters in the world.
Just to remind ourselves of where we were, we stopped at Mac’s On The Pier, and ate some oysters at a picnic table.
Sometimes, a soul needs an infusion of some Wellfleet – the town, the tide, the theater, and the oysters. And it is always good to have a visual reminder of how the tide is constantly changing.
