It was a gorgeous day at Hemenway Landing by Fort Hill on Cape Cod! The sky was brilliant against the many multi-colored boats on shore, waiting to be taken out on Nauset Marsh.
So medicinal and relaxing… summer is definitely here.
It was a gorgeous day so we decided to take a walk on Coast Guard Beach. It was crowded, especially near the lifeguard stands. But as you walk farther down the beach, there were very few people and you could enjoy the ambiance.
This man was especially enjoying some solitude and bliss as he had brought his chair out to the sandbar. It looks very tempting… don’t you think?
You never know what kinds of birds you will see on Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod. Today it was the Least Tern. They are such a beautiful bird. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)
I couldn’t figure out whether it was a parent feeding its young or just two Least Terns interacting on the beach. Whichever it was, it was pretty cool to watch.
Each year there seems to be a “seal island” on one of the sandbars by Coast Guard Beach or Nauset Beach. The seals pack themselves together and enjoy that little bit of time until the tide comes in again. (Click blog link to see other photo.)
The 2nd photo is of “seal island” not zoomed in. It is pretty far away from shore.
Yesterday it crowded at Coast Guard Beach! I’ve never seen so many people enjoying the gorgeous day. It was that perfect beach day… sunny and warm. And it was a nice surprise with all that we’ve been reading in the news about the Cape. (Click blog link to see other photo.)
And… people were enjoying the cool water to escape the heat of the beach. It was the perfect summer day!
There are new Shark Signs at all of the beaches on Cape Cod, both ocean beaches and bayside beaches. With all of the shark sightings in the past few years and the tragedy last summer, hopefully the signs will help if anyone gets in trouble, and make people aware of the possibility of sharks in the waters off of Cape Cod.
