It was a gorgeous day a few weeks ago to take a walk on the beach by Rock Harbor in Orleans on Cape Cod. The clouds were just spectacular as the temperatures were in the high 60s. Unbelievable for February on Cape Cod!
March has been exceptionally cold. We’re waiting for spring…
I’m always scouting out for the perfect picnic spot whether it be on the water or some other scenic place in Cape Cod. These 3 picnic benches are just perfect as they overlook Rock Harbor in Orleans and Cape Cod. Bay.
It doesn’t get much prettier! Can’t wait for our first picnic!
Rock Harbor in Orleans on Cape Cod is pretty empty this time of year. There are only a couple of boats to see and the docks look pretty empty.
But a pretty photograph from the Eastham side of Rock Harbor looking back…
There are still a couple of boats in Rock Harbor on Cape Cod. This big fishing boat looks like it has made many fishing trips out into the ocean!
Such a cool place! Have you ever been there? It’s where they dock The Finest Hours rescue boat, the CG 36500 in the summertime for all the tourists to visit!
It was such fun to go aboard the Coast Guard’s boat, CG36500 which is docked at Rock Harbor for the season. You can go inside and learn all about the greatest Coast Guard small boat rescue in history. It is an amazing story. The movie, The Finest Hours, came out last January is all about the unbelievable feat!
When you are finished there is a little shack across the parking lot with lots of CG36500 memorabilia which you can purchase. I got the latest edition of the book called, Rescue.
If you’re in Rock Harbor, it is a very cool thing to do …and very educational!
