WELLFLEET – The magical night began with a rainbow over Route 6, showing us the way. By the time we arrived at Wellfleet Harbor and Mayo Beach, there had been rain, sun, clouds and blue skies. It was the height of summer, still in the first half of August.
Talk about a setup for a visual feast. Did we mention we were at Wellfleet Harbor and Mayo Beach?
Everything about the night, from the light over Mac’s Shack to the fishermen sorting shellfish was about as iconic of a Cape Cod night as every postcard and sappy song could imagine. Somehow, it seemed, Wellfleet Harbor escaped heaven to grace us all with its presence.
And then after watching this spectacular show, we headed to our favorite little theater in the world, the Harbor Stage Company, to watch a great play, an original interpretation of Anton Chekov’s “Three Sisters.”
And finally, to make the night better than it could possibly be, we stopped for some food and a beer and found the ever-joyful Spampinato Brothers finishing their high energy set in The Well, where it seemed they had half the people up dancing.
We like August.
