There were a lot of boats, big and small, going in and out of Rock Harbor the other day. It was a nonstop parade of boats.
At Rock Harbor you have to go in or out with your boat about 2 hours before or 2 hours after high tide or you will get stuck at low tide. The tides on Cape Cod Bay have a huge swing.
Rock Harbor has very unique channel buoys. They look like trees planted in the bay. Very cool.
Have you ever been to Rock Harbor?
The pink Stork’s Bill wildflowers at Fort Hill in Eadtham on Cape Cod were spectacular. They were such a vibrant shade of pink!
Stork’s Bill are small pink flowers with 5 petals in long-stemmed umbrels. The flowers are tiny, only 3/4″ and bloom from April to October.
Have you ever seen a Stork’s Bill wildflower?
It is so much fun to watch all of the birds taking a bath in our bird bath. It seems like ones comes by for a bath and then it’s a line of lots of different birds waiting their turn for a bath.
This Baltimore Oriole was so cute, don’t you think?
The pink Roses in our garden are blooming like crazy this summer! They are just spectacular! i don’t think I have ever seen so many blooms on one bush. This photograph is of 3 Rose bushes in our backyard garden.
Beautiful, don’t you think?
I f you’ve never been to the Eastham Historical Society by the Salt Pond Visitor’s Center on Cape Cod, put it on your list. You can get a tour of the museum and tons of artifacts from old Eastham. It is fascinating.
And…the original schoolhouse adjoins the building so you can get a first hand look at what a typical classroom looked like way back when and even sit in one of the desks. It is really cool, especially for kids.
They have field trips that go there and the students can dress up in period dress, just like the kids who went to school there. What an awakening it is to them!
