Double-Crested Cormorants On Cape Cod In December?


We were so surprised to see these 3 Double-crested Cormorants perched on this dock at Rock Harbor yesterday. I haven’t seen one in a long time and thought they were long gone to milder climates! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

But, the figures looked so familiar that we stopped and I got a couple of photographs. Have you ever seen a Double-crested Cormorant on Cape Cod in December?

The Lull Before The Storm On Cape Cod Bay.


I love cloudy, windy days… the windier, the better! Yesterday I took a walk to Boat Meadow Beach in the morning before the high winds and the rain started. It was fairly windy out but the water was still calm. You can see the Canada Geese and Brants swimming about in the bay.

We went back at lunchtime and it was a different story. The waves were cranking and the wind was blowing. We were ready for a big storm!

I loved this photograph of the “lull before the storm.”What do you think?

Beautiful Hike At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod.


The Silver Springs Loop is one of our favorite hikes at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. It is so diverse and you never know what you will see. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I took these 2 photographs across the bridge on the hike. I couldn’t decide if I like the horizontal or vertical one better. What do you think?

Salmon Stir-Fry…One of Phil’s Specialties On Cape Cod.


I’m so lucky that Phil loves to cook and that he is such a good cook. We have our little dinner routine… I cut up everything and he cooks.

This Salmon Stir-Fry is one of his specialties. I cut up onions, peppers, mushrooms and asparagus. He sautees that with Salmon fillets and then serves it over rice or pasta. Easy and delicious!

Today is his birthday, so I thought it would be fun to give him tribute! Happy Birthday, Phil! I hope you make us a good dinner tonight! 🙂
