On the North shore of Yarmouth is a large marshland. Over the marshland is a long boardwalk that leads out from the pristine Gray’s Beach.
Heavily damaged in a January 2018 ‘Bomb Cyclone’, sheets of sea ice from Cape Cod Bay tore through the boardwalk. Some sections, like the main viewing platform were carried miles away.
Originally built in 1929, this heirloom boardwalk has achieved local iconic status. Over 961 people have bought planks to commemorate loved ones. Each plank donation helped with the restoration and has become a lasting tribute to honor their memories.
More than 10,000 people take the stroll to the viewing platform each season. Both locals and Washashore’s alike visit to find a quiet beach to relax with the family and capture the colors of the sunset to mark a day well lived.
And what a picturesque sunset it can be…
