Lots Of Least Terns Out On The Sandbar At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

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?

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!

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?

Adorable Sanderlings At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

I love the little Sanderlings as they scurry about looking for food on Coast Guard Beach. These three were dodging the waves to find something to eat. Sanderlings are here on the Cape all year round, so you can frequently see them on the beaches or flying above.

Have you ever seen a Sanderling? Beautiful little shore bird…

I love Nauset Marsh Trail which winds around the Salt Pond by the Visitors Center in Eastham and out to Nauset Marsh.  It is so different each time you hike it. It is particularly pretty this time of year with its fall colors and late-flowering bushes.

Pretty, don’t you think? Love those clouds!
