The skies were magnificent as we hiked the Salt Pond Trail, also known as Nauset Marsh Trail, the other day.  I took a horizontal photograph and thought that it looked pretty. The sky and clouds were spectacular.  And then I took a vertical one. Wow!

What do you think?

The Great Blue Heron is my very favorite bird! I love its features and the majestic way it moves. We were walking the Salt Pond Trail and saw this Great Blue looking for his next meal.

Beautiful bird, don’t you think?

There were several paddle surfers enjoying the glorious day at Coast Guard Beach a few days ago when temperatures were in the high 50s. This paddle surfer was catching some awesome waves from the off-shore breeze. Perfect day for surfing!

The Many Salt Marsh Plants On Cape Cod.

We were taking a hike at Fort Hill last fall when we passed a group of middle school student on a field trip. Their guide was telling them about the salt marsh and that there are 3 plants that make up a salt marsh.

I thought to myself, “I never knew that. I’ll have to look that up when I get home.” I did some research and I think they are herbs, grasses and low shrubs. Does anyone know if this is correct? There are many, many different varieties of each of these plants.

This is a photograph of Glasswort or Pickleweed. You can see it along the side of the trail on the salt marsh at Fort Hill.

One of my favorite walks is the one from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach, any time, any day. It is always spectacular!

I loved this photograph of the bridge looking back over Nauset Marsh. The colors were so pretty.

So pretty, don’t you think?
