Sunset via Brant Rock.
There are some places in the world that are physically, aesthetic. This place, for me, is even more. Emotionally, soulfully beautiful. A part of my core. This is the beach that has been mine ever since before I could walk. It’s where we’d collect rocks and shells as kids. Sneak away to in high school. The place I came to sit by myself when I needed it. A place I always find myself when I’m home.
Watching the sunset here with my little brother, throwing rocks into the ocean. It’s so special to me. Everything here is. I hope he feels that way too, someday.
New favorite discovery in my own back yard: Shining Sea Bikeway. Round-trip, 21+ mile paved bike path from North Falmouth to Woods Hole (right at the ferry port).
We parked in Falmouth, rented bikes (there’s a shop RIGHT at the start of the trail), then biked all the way down, stopping for cranberry bogs, marshes, and beaches. IT’S SO PRETTY! And it was a PERFECT day for us.
Plus, when we arrived, we rewarded ourselves with lobster rolls and ice-cream. So I don’t know how it gets any better than that.
