The Splendor of Nature's Color Palette

While thoughts of Cape Cod often conjure up images of long summer days with sparkling waves ebbing and flowing on sandy beaches, sailboats in marinas and shops and galleries in seaside villages, perhaps no other season but autumn, provides a more beautiful display of nature’s colorful palette.

Each year at this time, the days grow shorter and the air is crisp and clear. Blue skies and sunshine highlight the beautiful grandeur that colors of autumn provide.

On Cape Cod this visual display is not only showcased in the changing colors of leaves on the trees and bushes, but in the beach grasses, cranberry bogs and salt marshes. Extraordinary light, unique cloud formations, pumpkin patches and haunting displays add to the unique seasonal landscape.

Autumn on Cape Cod is truly a joy for all the senses.
