Rock Harbor – Orleans, MA 8/14
When the tide on the bay side of Cape Cod goes out, it goes way out. Especially at Rock Harbor. To mark the channel trees are planted at the entrance to the harbor for fisherman to find their way into the harbor. At low tide you can walk out to these trees and see that street signs have been humorously posted on them, such as “Thickly Settled” and “Dangerous Intersection”. On a recent visit at low tide it was close to a mile to the water’s edge from the high tide mark.
