The Shadows Are Getting Longer On Cape Cod


I rode my bike down to First Encounter Beach in Eastham  so I could get a photograph of the beautiful beach early in the morning.

I loved this photograph. I laughed when I saw that I got my long shadow and those of the signs and beach fence as I photographed the beautiful beach. Funny, don’t you think?

It makes me think that summer is almost over as the shadows are getting so much longer this time of year.

Paddle Boarders At Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod


These two paddle boarders were certainly enjoying the gorgeous weather while paddling on Nauset Marsh in Eastham on Cape Cod.

I took this photograph from the Hemenway Landing on Nauset Marsh. It was a spectacular day with little wind and lots of sun. Perfect day for anything on Cape Cod!

It’s Windy On Coast Guard Beach In Eastham On Cape Cod


It was a gorgeous day at Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore,  in Eastham on Cape Cod. The wind was blowing and the waves were such fun to surf or boogie board.

I loved this photograph on the Lifeguard Station on the beach from the overlook by the Coast Guard Station. Love those waves!

Colorful Boats At Hemenway Landing On Cape Cod


There are so many multi-colored canoes and kayaks at Hemenway Landing in Eastham on Cape Cod this summer. They make for a wonderful photograph!

Pretty soon we will see them slowly dwindle away as they are put away until next summer. But maybe we still have a few more weeks to paddle this glorious Nauset Marsh! It doesn’t get much better.

Lots Of Seals Along The Outer Beaches Of Cape Cod


There are a lot of seals swimming along the beaches here on Cape Cod. We saw this seal at Coast Guard Beach. He was only about 15-20 feet from shore.

And when there are seals swimming so close to shore, you always have to be aware of a possible shark nearby, as their diet is seals. There seems to be a lot of shark activity on Cape Cod this summer.


Salt Marsh In Eastham On Cape Cod At Low Tide


On my morning bike rides, I ride over several salt marshes in Eastham and Orleans. They are just spectacular, whether it is high tide or low tide.

I took this photograph on the road going to the Eastham side of Rock Harbor as you cross over the salt marsh. You can see the buildings at Rock Harbor in the distance.

And then I edited it two different ways. Which one do you like better?
