After many, many days of fog, rain wind, drizzle and lots of wind from Hurricane Jose, the skies cleared and Nauset Light Beach, part of the National Seashore, was spectacular! It was a warm day and there were a lot of people enjoying every second of it.
Phil and I were trying to figure out why there was so much traffic yesterday… maybe because it was a Sunday or maybe because everyone who has been stuck inside for over a week finally got outside to enjoy the gorgeous beaches on Cape Cod!
It was a beautiful day to take a hike at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. The days are a little cooler and crisper and the sun was shining brightly. Perfect day at Fort Hill.
I love the little cutaways in the shrubs along the trails so you can see Nauset Marsh from many different angles. This view was just spectacular.
What do you think?
I have always loved seeing the Swamp Rose-Mallow wildflowers by the beaches in Connecticut and on Cape Cod. We called them “Marshmallows” when we were growing up, even though they come in pink or white. The were abundant around the ponds by the beach.
I saw this Swamp Rose-Mallow growing in the crevice of this rock at Fort Hill. I thought it was so pretty. The flowers are large, 4-7″ and grow near salt marshes and beaches.
I loved the coloring with the soft blues and light pink. What do you think?
We were on our way to the gym a few days ago when we saw this awesome sunrise to the east. So, the next morning we left a bit earlier and got to Fort Hill, on the National Seashore, just as the sun started to rise. It was just spectacular as you can see the sun over Nauset Marsh with the Atlantic Ocean in the background. The sun was so huge!
Pretty, don’t you think?
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!
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.
