Boat Meadow Bay Beach

Boat Meadow Bay Beach

Everyone thinks of beaches when they come to Cape Cod for their summer fun. Most are drawn to the National Seashore beaches where one can see the crashing waves from the Atlantic, or on the Bay side with our breathtaking sunsets. But for Zen like swimming in little seas of tranquillity, Cape Cod also has many beautiful kettle ponds.

Today we had a beautiful walk in Nickerson State Park. Since we can’t take our dog Harrison swimming on the bay beaches we are always looking for new places to let him swim during the summer. Nickerson is a beautiful park which has wonderful biking and walking paths.

Kettle ponds have an interesting geology on Cape Cod as they were formed more than 15,000 years ago, when blocks of glacier ice melted, leaving massive holes, called kettles, that filled with fresh water.
These kettle ponds are sprinkled around Cape Cod and are great places to have a summer swim. Harrison can attest to how wonderful they are….

We love to hike around Nickerson. It’s such a beautiful park with many hidden areas.
