    Head of the Meadows

    According to The National Park Service, this beach in North Truro, the wreck of the Frances, which was sunk in a December gale in 1872, may still be seen at low tide.  How cool is that.  There is also a life guard on duty.  Truro is a quiet, quaint town with gorgeous white sandy beaches.
