But where are the rocks?" It's a question often heard from first-time visitors to this popular and picturesque harbor. From here, fishing vessels of many types sail out into Cape Cod Bay and around Provincetown into the Atlantic fishing grounds as well.
The glaciers that formed Cape Cod more than 10,000 years ago left giant boulders (glacial erratics) here and there all over the landscape. Before beacons and electronics guided the returning fishermen, a boulder at the mouth of this tidal creek was a welcome sign of home.
