Photo of the Day - Marconi Wireless Station

As part of our responsibility to show Flat Stanley a few of the sights of the Outer Cape, we took him Saturday to Marconi Beach to see the site of the Marconi Wireless Station, where Guglielmo Marconi first transmitted across the Atlantic Ocean in 1903.

Here, Flat Stanley is standing at the crest of the beach, overlooking one of the four tower bases that eroded years ago from the high bank to the water level, recently exposed only a low tide. The tower base is visible above Stanley's left shoulder. Click on the photo to enlarge.
