When Sven and I went to Newcomb Hollow yesterday, of course we checked on the shipwreck. We had visited a week ago, so it surprised us to see more changes. Sand once again covered some of the exposed beams. Based on the footprints, we could tell the site remains an attraction to tourists and locals alike. With the weather improving, Wellfleet's shipwreck will continue to draw visitors, eager for contact with a bit of history in this disconcerting period of our existence when celebrities get book deals, newspapers are going out of business, and the major concern of CNN seems to be a race to see whether Larry K. or Ashton K. has the most followers on Twitter.
