The Piping Plovers Are Back On Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day so we took an early morning walk on Coast Guard Beach. It was just beautiful. Just as we were about to reach the newly posted signs about the nesting Piping Plovers, I saw something scurry from the water up onto the beach.

There it was… our first Piping Plover of the season. What a treat! There were a pair of them there and, farther down the beach closer to Nauset Spit, there was another pair. It looked like they were scratching their nests, as Piping Plovers lay their eggs on a simple scrape in the sand on an open beach.

Our beautiful morning walk  turned into a  very special morning walk.

Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod Was Spectacular Yesterday!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day so we decided to have a picnic in the car at Nauset Light Beach and then go to Coast Guard Beach for a little walk. It was just gorgeous.

We walked partway down the beach but the tide was coming in and we didn’t want to get stuck on the way back. I  love the sound of the waves as they were churning and breaking way far out!

Pretty sky, don’t you think?

The stairs at Marconi Beach in Wellfleet on Cape Cod made it through the winter intact! It’s always a question at the beginning of winter… will the stairs at the Cape Cod beaches make it through the winter? As you can see, these are pretty substantial steps!

And a beautiful view in the distance. Have you ever been to Marconi Beach to swim or take a walk?

Beautiful View From Indian Rock At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

It was the perfect day to take a hike along one of Fort Hill’s many trails. This trail leads up to Skiff Hill which has an overlook of Nauset Marsh with Coast Guard Beach in the distance.

It is also the site of the “Indian Rock,” which  a large boulder moved to the hill from the marsh below. “Once used by the local Nauset tribe as a sharpening stone, the rock is cut with deep grooves and smoothed in circles where ax heads were whetted.”

Such a beautiful place, don’t you think?
