Tramping the Dune Shacks with the Dune Tramp
Thursday, June 27 at 7:00 pm
Do you enjoy the lure
of the outer Cape dunes with their quaint old shacks? Join the Dune Tramp, an engaging writer and photographer,
as he narrates a virtual tour with over 100 slides. The Dune Tamp has captured
the beauty and mystery of the shacks and takes you on a journey across the
landscape of Truro and Provincetown, over a three and a three
quarter mile stretch, to visit the nineteen existing dune shacks remaining in
the Cape Cod National Seashore. The photographs will take you inside these
rustic dwellings for a rare glimpse of shack living. See vintage images of some
shacks that date back to the 1940s, graciously shared by the National Seashore.
Each shack is discussed along with a brief history and an anecdote or two.
You’ll appreciate the insider’s view into these enigmatic and iconic structures
of the Cape Cod landscape.
