Cape Cod 2021: Welcome to Chatham

I took these photographs during my travels in Cape Cod during the summer of 2021. With international tourism still somewhat problematic, people had returned to the Cape in great numbers. Parking spaces were noticeably more difficult to find. The summer began with seeming great promise as COVID-19 vaccines decreased the number of individuals susceptible to the virus. It became increasingly apparent, though, that cases of the Delta variant were surging globally, and even locally. Despite this, the wearing of masks indoors remained minimal. None of this, though, will be apparent from these photos. More to follow.
