First Encounter Beach

The story behind the photo: This one was taken at First Encounter Beach down in Cape Cod as sunset was fast approaching. It was so named because it is the site of the first encounter between Native Americans and the Pilgrims prior to their settling in Plymouth.While camped here Standish and company were surprised by a group of Nausets; arrows flew and shots were fired, but no harm resulted.

    Yes, I love history, especially of places that I can visit. I always wonder “why is this place called this, or does it have any historical significance.”

    Thanks Liesl!
