Bridge over the Lobster Plain.
It is difficult today — at least on foot — to comprehend the body of water that once bisected Long Point and formed the nucleus of the settlement. But it is easy to see its outlines from the air: two T shapes snaking as a sandy floor among the green dunes. At the narrow channel between the Ts was a bridge. It’s shown on the model of the settlement at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, pictured here.
