Last Saturday, I packed up my camera and went out to have the Usual drive through the picturesque back road (Route 6A) of Cape Cod. The Unusual thing about the drive was that Grace was not with me this time. She left two-day ago for Chicago then back to Taiwan. Our Usual drives were also Usually not planned. It was Unusual this time, I checked the tide table and well-planned my trip to visit some of the beaches and parks that we have not been before.
Route 6A goes alone the coast of the northern side of Cape Cod and it is Unusual because it goes through some the most picturesque and least touristic parts of Cape Cod. It is lined with old towns, century-old houses, small museums, antique shops and fine-restaurants. My first stop was Corporation Beach of Dennis. Dennis is a bit Unusual because the town covers a land stretches from the Cape Cod Bay at north to the Atlantic Ocean at south. Thus it has beaches on both sides, a plus for local residences because you need beach sticker, only the local residences can have, to park at any of these beaches. Corporation Beach is facing the Cape Cod Bay. As all the beaches facing the bay, it is quite Unusual as compares to the Usual sand beaches, such as those on the south side of Cape Cod. When the tide goes out, the sand flat can stretch for miles out into the bay. Various birds come in to feed on this sand flat.
Next to the museum is the Old Higgin's Farm Windmill. It is over 200 years old and has been meticulously restored. I did some trick on the computer to make it look a little bit Unusual!!
One more Unusual event happened on that day, I now have officially taken over 10,000 pictures with my Nikon D700. It restarted counting from 0001.
