The Outermost Vacation

Our family vacationed this summer on Cape Cod.  In between mini-golf at the Wellfleet drive-in-theatre and ice cream at Macs-on-the-pier my thoughts settled on Henry Beston's classic work of nature writing - The Outermost House.  The book poetically describes seasonal changes on the dunes and the sea.  

We explored the same dunes and beaches that brought comfort and solitude to the author and visited many places of natural and cultural wonder.
