I heard a little rustle in the leaves at Wiley Park and saw this little mouse scurry up the tree and out onto a branch. This is the first mouse I have seen there. I’ve heard rustling in the leaves many times but always thought it must be a bird. Maybe it was a mouse?
So, I took some photographs up on the branch and then in the leaves below and came home to research what kind of mouse it was. I presumed it was a “Field Mouse.” Well, there are so many different types of mice, I have no idea what kind it is.
Can anyone identify this little guy? Cute, isn’t he?
It was a cold and windy early morning at Nauset Beach on Cape Cod, but a glorious day to take a walk. Any day is a glorious day to take a walk on Nauset Beach, or any beach on the National Seashore.
The sun had just gone behind the clouds so it looks almost like dusk.
I loved the wind blowing the spume from the waves.
What do you think?
I was just finishing a little hike at Fort Hill which overlooks Nauset Marsh when I saw this seagull posing on the fence post with Nauset Marsh and the Coast Guard Station in the background. He stayed there for quite a while, changing his pose periodically.
I couldn’t decide which one I liked better… the one where he is looking straight at me (which is the first one I took) or the one that shows his silhouette.
Which one do you like better?
It was a beautiful sunset on Cape Cod Bay. Red sky at night means sailor’s delight… Red sky in the morning means sailor’s warning.
Hmmm. This was 2 nights before a winter storm, so I guess it was a sailor’s delight that the storm was a couple of days out!
There are still a couple of boats in Rock Harbor on Cape Cod. This big fishing boat looks like it has made many fishing trips out into the ocean!
Such a cool place! Have you ever been there? It’s where they dock The Finest Hours rescue boat, the CG 36500 in the summertime for all the tourists to visit!
