I was taking a late afternoon walk to the beach when I noticed that all of the wire protecting the terrapins along the salt marsh was removed. Hmmm… The females must have already laid their eggs and were back at the salt marsh. (Click on blog link to see more photos.)
I looked out over the bridge and was I in for a big treat! There were Diamondback Terrapins everywhere. They were floating and swimming and diving. It was spectacular to watch.
The first 2 photographs are of them swimming about. The 3rd photograph is of 2 of them diving down under water. In the last photograph, I could only fit 4 terrapins in one frame, although there were 7 in the water at that time.
Just beautiful, don’t you think? I love that first guy looking up at me!
I’ve always loved the Butter and Eggs wildflowers. They grow from July through September along the roadsides and dry fields. This was the first one that I’ve seen this summer.
Pretty, don’t you think?
Nauset Light Beach, part of the National Seashore, is always so pretty from the overlook. People were doing a great job of “social distancing” on the beach. I loved the colorful beach umbrellas scattered along the beach.
It looks like summer on Cape Cod!
My granddaughter counted 55 seals in the video I sent her of the seals at Coast Guard Beach. That sure seems like a lot! (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I loved this guy, taking a nap with everyone else around him. Too funny, don’t you think?
There’s nothing like a 6 am bike ride here on Cape Cod! There is no one around and it is just gorgeous!
It was almost low tide this morning at Boat Meadow Beach. It doesn’t get much prettier!
These two little baby raccoons keep coming around our yard for a drink of water. They start at the little bird bath, but drink it dry, as you can see in the 2nd photo. They then make it over to the tall bird bath and climb up for a long drink. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
These photos were just too cute not to post! Loved this little guy walking across the yard!
