Stepping out of the Shack

C-Scape Dune Shack Residency

Hilary_Lorenz_CScape_Dune_Shack_Seals.jpgIt was delightful to return to the C-Scape Dune Shack on Provincetown’s National Seashore after almost 8 years. It is hard to believe it was that long ago that I spend 6 fascinating winter weeks here. Now it is summer  I will be here three weeks and I have the grey seals to watch.

There have been great improvements in the shack, there is now a propane refrigerator and stove. There is a new outdoor composting toilet and a solar shower. The single layer walls have interior slats of wood, and one of the windows and frame have been replaced along with a beautiful cabinet in the living room. It is still very much a shack bur far more cozy. If you followed me in 2007/08, I am writing this post in the place I wrote then, the Cape Air Airport. It is a little over a 45:00 walk down the beach from the shack.  And to much of my surprise and pleasure I am still all alone and completely secluded from the public. I will keep you updated about my adventures. I am here until August 27th.
