Beautiful Bi-Colored Crown Vetch Wildflowers On Cape Cod.

51 views

Crown Vetch wildflowers are a creeping plant with bi-colored flowers that form a golf ball size cluster at the end of the stalks. They make a lovely ground cover. They bloom the entire summer from June through August.

You can find them along many of the trails as well as along the sides of roads and parking lots around the Cape.

Lots Of Seals Off Of Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod!

156 views

There are so many new and huge sandbars along Coast Guard Beach this summer, there is sure to be an influx of seals hanging around. That’s exactly what we saw as we took a walk down the beach at low tide yesterday. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

You could hear the cacophony of sounds coming from the seals, that somewhat resembled a chorus, before you could see them. They were just relaxing in the waves and singing away. They are quite entertaining.

Have you seen any seals yet this summer?

The boardwalk on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill is lush this summer. It’s a great hike over the swamp and you’re sure to see lots of wildflowers and hear the diversity of birds singing in the trees.

It’s one of our favorite hikes!

I was so excited when I picked up  “Eastham 2020,”  a booklet published each summer by the Eastham Chamber of Commerce, and saw that one of my kayaking photographs was used on their “Things To Do…To The Beach” page. How cool is that? (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

Eastham 2020  is a wonderful resource  which includes everything that you might want to know if you are visiting Eastham: accommodations,  restaurants, shopping, beaches, biking trails, hiking trails, historic sites, maps, activities, etc. The list goes on and on. You can find the booklet in many locations around town.

Thank you, Jim. It was such a treat  to see my photograph included in Eastham 2020!
