Marconi Beach, Cape Cod

In 1902, Marconi set up the a wireless station at eastern sea shore of Wellfleet, Cape Cod to relay a message from President Roosevelt to King Edward VII of England. It was the first two-way transatlantic wireless communication and the first wireless telegram between America and Europe.

The Marconi Beach is now part of Cape Cod National Seashore of the US National Park Service, covering 43604 acres of shoreline boarding the Atlantic ocean from Provincetown to Chatham.

It is a major attraction for the vocational families, college students and as you can see here, surfers.

I visited he beach in the late afternoon on July 3rd after my trip to the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary of Massachusetts Audubon Society.

That's a great capture of the surfer! I loved Bath, luckily it's only a couple of hours from me by train so hopefully I will return soon for another weekend. And yes, a cream tea is not to be missed!
