Great Trail At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod


The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod has a lot of great trails to hike. This is one of our favorite’s… through the woods, across the salt marsh and then out to the beaches, as long as it is not near high tide!! 🙂



Beautiful Red-Breasted Merganser At Wiley Park On Cape Cod


I’ve been looking for a good photograph of a Red-Breasted Merganser all winter here on Cape Cod. And then yesterday when I was hiking at Wiley Park I saw something swimming in the kettle pond near the shore. I quickly got my camera out and got ready. I quietly walked down the little trail to the shore and stood behind a tree. As soon as I saw him get closer, I clicked away. And, as soon as he heard the click, he flew away!

But I think I got a pretty good photograph. What do you think?

Phil and I always said that this diving duck was having a “bad hair day!” Cute little guy, don’t you think?

Silver Spring Loop Trail At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod


The Silver Spring Loop in one of my favorite hikes at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod. The trail meanders along the spring (which looks like a very long pond) so you can see lots of birds and maybe some wildlife. A wooden bridge takes you cross the spring where the trail  continues through the huge pine trees.

So much diversity along such a pretty trail. Pretty, don’t you think?
