First Encounter Beach

A beautiful summer day at the beach on Cape Cod. The crowds are already starting to dwindle as school starts up. This area of Cape Cod was originally settled by the Nauset tribe, Eastham was the site where in 1620 a hunting expedition landed, comprised from the crew of the sailing vessel Mayflower, which had stopped in Provincetown harbor on Cape Cod Bay after a rough crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, which led to the first encounter of the Pilgrims and the local Nauset people at First Encounter Beach.
