Ocean Side

It's always hard for me to decide which beaches to choose when we're visiting Cape Cod: bay side or ocean side. Bay side is warmer, more swimmable, but potentially funky smelling at low tide, and while great for wading then, way too shallow for swimming. Ocean side has dramatic dunes, waves, and sometimes visiting seals, but colder water and strong currents.

Today we tried ocean side.


We stopped at a Truro beach at the bottom of a high backing dune. It was a bit of a steep walk down.


No one in sight.


Sun sinking behind the dunes.


Looking out to sea.


Ocean side wins.

Visiting seals... and sharks. I was so bummed out that we couldn't swim at Marconi this September. On the bay side, I like Old Silver Beach - but overall, I still prefer the breath-taking beauty of Truro, Marconi, Nauset and Chatham, the sharks not withstanding : )
