covered bridge -0742

I highly recommend the general store /eatery at the eastern end of this bridge; take in the ambiance of old and new, order a Treehugger sandwich with avocado and some double cut fries, and slow down to whatever music is wafting about the store – some soft Brazilian rhythms on the afternoon of my visit.

Per the owner, the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Irene raised the water level of the stream up to the base of the bridge, probably 16 feet above the riverbed.

atlantic cedar swamp trail-0141

“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
Robert Frost

Actually not so much with this boardwalk. It just loops around in a circle – as does the actual Cedar Swamp Trail.

chatham harbor -0394

There are any number of beautiful towns and villages tucked into the hillsides and coastline of New England, and Chatham MA might just be the most photogenic of them all. It’s a small town of six thousand (three times that in the summer) on the elbow of Cape Cod, with many wonderful homes throughout (that classic Cape style), and spectacular ocean views to the east and south as well.

Now granted, I’ve only been there once – which just happened to be on a beautiful early September day with a huge high pressure ridge (lots of blue skies, low humidity) firmly in place over the entire Cape – but still. It’s a remarkable town and certainly worth a visit, or two or three.
