My inlaws have a place on the Cape in Yarmouth Port, MA. Yesterday, I "discovered" a gorgeous, wild, natural, quiet little beach in Barnstable Harbor (end of Bone Hill Road). It has open water to the north, lowlands to the south, and thus should have decent winds for most directions. These photos were taken close to high tide, and space is pretty limited, but at low tide quite a bit of sandbar is exposed allowing for plenty of flying space.

Anyways, I thought I would share some photos:

This is my custom vented 1.5, 2-wrap frame, in about 5mph wind (too low), flying with right hand, camera in left hand. This is looking toward the west toward Barnstable village.

I switched to my 1.5 SLE with 2-wrap frame for the rest of the evening. This is looking to the north toward a lighthouse near the end of Sandy Neck.

There are a lot of good secluded places to fly down in that area, your lucky to find one it beats dodging tourists.

Looks like a great location as well lots of places to play in the water, Cape Cod is usually good for wind from any direction as most of it is slightly above sea level.

Nice Vented Rev, I like that, Good Luck

Awww, but dodging tourists can be fun, as "dodge" can be read as "terrorizing with low ground passes, and head and knee high hovers"... errm okay, maybe i'm just a wee bit evil... but i smile while i do it, so they don't mind.
