Fire On The Boardwalk

I was taken back by the following story because it's so close to home...also one of my favorite spots to watch the sunset.  Located less than five miles (I never actually measured it) from our condo in Dennis,  Massachusetts, we sometimes go there to walk the nearby walking trails...many tourists also frequent the area. After you read the following story scroll down to see some of the pictures I've taken...truly a beautiful part of Cape Cod and its a shame that anyone could be so careless (or cruel) to set this boardwalk on fire. ~ Norman E.
