Spectacular Day For Kayaking Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod

47 views

It was a glorious day… sunny with little wind and a perfect day to take our kayaks out on the water. We launched at Good Hummock in Orleans and paddled Town Cove to Nauset Marsh and then out along the outer beach to Nauset Spit. It couldn’t get any prettier!

We stopped for a bit to rest and had some lunch. There were a lot of boats in the water and many kayakers enjoying the day.  We took a different route back and paddled  in through Nauset Marsh, going by Fort Hill and Hemenway Landing. So beautiful…

It was definitely a “pinch me” day! 🙂

Lobster Boat Moored In Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod

39 views

I’ve never seen a larger boat like this lobster boat moored in Nauset Marsh, so I was a little surprised to see it moored in the middle of the channel. The channel must be deep enough to allow a bit this size to moor there.

I took this photograph from Fort Hll looking out toward Coast Guard Station in the distance. I thought it made such a nice, colorful photograph. What do you think?

The Eastern Starflowers are blooming all over Cape Cod and are gorgeous. Each Eastern Starflower has 2 delicate flowers with 5-9 pointed petals on a slender stem with shiny leaves. The flowers are are small, 1/2″ to 3/4″ and bloom in May and June in cool, dry woods.

Pretty, don’t you think?

Pretty White Canada Mayflower At Hemenway Landing On Cape Cod

I saw this little white Canada Mayflower wildflower a couple of weeks ago at Hemenway Landing by Fort Hill. It is a small woodland plant with tiny 4-petaled flowers clustered on a stem. They only grow 3-6″ in May and June.

I liked the macro of it as you can see its tiny details. So pretty, don’t you think? Have you ever seen a Canada Mayflower?

First Seal Of The Season At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod

I saw my first seal of the season at Coast Guard Beach the other day. There were quite a few of them in the water, so the water must be warming up a bit. The latest I heard was that the water was 54 degrees. Brrrr…

Cute little guy, don’t you think?
