cahoon hollow beach

Well I slightly eluded to our Saturday beach hike in this post and on instagram, naturally, so here's some more footage from that gorgeous St Patrick's Day on Cape Cod. We were at Cahoon Hollow Beach - or as it's commonly nicknamed "The Beachcomber" for the eponymous bar that sits perched at the top of the main dune catering to surfers, beach bums and music lovers a like. This stunning stretch of Atlantic Ocean front seashore is one of my favorite beaches; I'm fond of it in the heat of summer (packed with crowds) but I appreciate even more the sweeping dunes and untouched sandbars when there's hardly another person in sight. I know everyone associates Cape Cod with summertime, but, for me, these off season weekends are some of the best times to visit.

  2. Gorgeous. Growing up we would always go to the coast during the winter, I guess it was cheaper! But I grew to love the calm and quiet, and I like it best during that time now.
