Kite Surfing At First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod.

45 views

Yesterday was a windy, windy day and perfect for kite surfing on the creek behind First Encounter Beach. It was fun to watch the 2 kite surfers as they did their maneuvers. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

In the 2nd photograph, the kite surfer jumped so high in the air, I got him in my frame but not the kite. Pretty cool, don’t you think?

We could hear the Least Terns squawking way out on the sand bar as we walked down Coast Guard Beach. There were hundreds of them out there. And then something scared them.

I loved this photograph as they started to fly away.  What do you think?

Love The Face On This American Lady Butterfly Here On Cape Cod!

The butterflies were still around here on Cape Cod last week when I saw this American Lady land on one of my Zinnias. Look at that face!

You can see in the 2nd photograph how camouflaged they look when their wings are folded up. We had quite a few of them around this past summer. Have you ever seen an American Lady butterfly?

Perfect Time For A Hike On White Cedar Swamp Trail On Cape Cod.

White Cedar Swamp Trail in Wellfleet is the perfect hike for the fall with all of the changing colors. This was a beautiful day, sunny and windy. It’s a fairly easy hike with the trail down to the swamp, a boardwalk over the swamp and then an old road back to the trailhead.

So pretty, don’t you think? Have you ever hiked the White Cedar Swamp Trail? It’s perfect for the whole family. Kids love it!

Vibrant, Yellow Common Tansy Wildflower At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

82 views

The Common Tansy wildflower is one of the last ones to bloom in late summer or early fall. I saw this one a few weeks ago by the lower parking lot at Fort Hill. It is such a delicate, little wildflower in a vibrant yellow.

Love the button-like flowers. Have you ever seen a Common Tansy?

Love The Bridge Over Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.

One of our favorite walks is from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach. Each time you go, it is so different. You can see that fall is here with the marsh grasses turning a yellowy brown.

So pretty, don’t you think? Have you ever walked over this bridge?
