Wellfleet Paragliding - High Above the Dunes

I came upon a video that shows a gathering of paragliders above Wellfleet's high dunes. The video, taken before Hurricane Sandy, is spectacular. It's a bit long, and the folks seem to be speaking Portuguese, but the scenes are amazing!

2012 Thanksgiving Rubber Duckie Race - November 18th

Again this year, the Eastham Recreation and Beach Department is having its annual rubber duck race on the Sunday before Thanksgiving (November 18th) at the end of First Encounter Beach, on Bee's River. Prizes will be 'awarded' to the top 10 finishers. It's a buck a duck and they start swimming at 3 PM. This should be a lot of fun.

If you'd like to buy a duck (for a buck), call the Rec Department at 508-240-5974 after 10 AM this Wednesday (Nov 14th). Ducks are assigned automatically, by the order of the calls. When all the ducks are gone, they're gone! This is a rain or shine event. You must pay on race-day and be present to win.

Billingsgate Island - The Little Island That Was

Billingsgate Lighthouse
Off the end of Wellfleet's Great Island are the remains of what was the community of Billingsgate Island. There were about 30 homes, a lighthouse, and even a baseball team, on this tiny island (50 acres?) that was focused primarily on fishing and whaling. The island totally disappeared in 1942, but can still be seen at low low tide, just south of Jeremy Point. The history is a fascinating story of fighting a never-ending battle with the inevitable 'sinking' of the island.
