Chatham has a little park right in the center of town which they use for all sorts of fun events. This time of year many of the businesses make scarecrows with the theme of their business. Here are 2 that I thought were really cute.
Cute, don’t you think?
It was a beautiful day to take a walk on First Encounter Beach on Cape Cod. The tides were low so you could walk way out on the flats.
First Encounter Beach is a place with historic significance. It was so named because it is the site of the first encounter between Native Americans and the Pilgrims prior to their settling in Plymouth.
Have you ever been to First Encounter Beach? So Pretty!
It was a beautiful day for a hike here in Eastham on Cape Cod. The trees were so pretty with all of their different colors.
I loved this bridge with all of the fallen leaves on it. Did you get to go for a hike this fall?
The flag was blowing at Chatham Lighthouse the other day. And the sky was blue, blue, blue! What a beautiful day to photograph Chatham Light.
Chatham Light signals boats off of Chatham and Chatham Bar. The building to the right is the Coast Guard Station will go to action when boats are in distress. This is the station that was featured in the Disney movie, The Finest Hours, which is about the the most daring rescue mission in the history of the Coast Guard.
Nauset Light and the CG Station are a must to see if you are ever on Cape Cod. The views are spectacular!
And if you haven’t seen The Finest Hours, make sure you see it too. The story is unbelievable!
We haven’t had a freeze yet here on Cape Cod so my Zinnias are still blooming and gorgeous! I picked about 100 of them yesterday and put them in vases all around the house. They are so pretty and so colorful! And I know in a couple of weeks they will be gone…
Have you ever really looked at a Zinnia? This is looking down on it. The tiny yellow stamens that circle the main flower are just exquisite!
I was taking a walk to Boat Meadow Beach the other day when this beautiful Red-tailed Hawk caught my eye way up in the tree. The sun was hitting it perfectly. He looked like he was looking for lunch in the marshlands.
He’s gorgeous, don’t you think?
