Yesterday was a glorious day, sunny and in the lower 70s… a perfect day for a bike ride! I took off to Boat Meadow Beach which is where I took this photograph. It was high tide and there were people sitting on the beach and one little boy was swimming. The clouds were spectacular!
Then I biked over to Rock Harbor which is another beautiful place to visit any time of the year. Then on to the Cape Cod Rail Trail over the salt marshes and home. Who ever thought I could bike in shorts and a t-shirt at the end of October? I wasn’t going to miss this gorgeous day!
The bike ride to First Encounter Beach in Eastham is just spectacular as you ride next to the beautiful salt marshes where you can see the Osprey up above and hear all of the morning birds with all their chatter.
If you go past the main parking lot and down the road, you come to 3 different trails over the dunes that will lead you to the beach. One of them is handicap- accessible with its blue rubber mat which make it easier for wheelchairs and strollers. These paths lead to the beach, but far from the main crowd.
Such a beautiful setting…
Yesterday morning was a perfect morning to go for a bike ride on Cape Cod. It was sunny and cool and just perfect.
I started out biking down to Rock Harbor and then back on the Cape Cod Bike Trail. This is always gorgeous
I took this photograph at Boat Meadow which was absolutely stunning. Perfect day for a bike ride…
From the blizzard last week to 62 degrees yesterday… Wow! The snow is almost all gone and it feels like spring!
So, I got my bike out and took my first bike ride of the season! It was awesome! I have never biked in February and I even wore shorts! How cool is that?
This is my “selfie” at Boat Meadow Beach on Cape Cod Bay.. My arm isn’t quite long enough, but you can get the picture. 🙂
I saw these two Silvery Checkerspot butterflies last September as we were taking a walk down the Cape Cod Bike Trail to Coast Guard Beach. There were a lot of butterflies flitting about that day.
It’s not often that I get two of them on the same flower, so I clicked away! They love the Goldenrod wildflowers.
The walk from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach is pretty any time of the year. It is short and easy and you pass on the bike trail for a bit. There is always a lot to see!
Yellow Birdfoot Trefoil wildflowers are growing al along the Cape Cod Bike Trail. They are so pretty.
Birdfoot Trefoil Has bright yellow irregularly shaped 1/2″ flowers in little clusters. The plant grows 6-18″ tall from June to September.
Check the side of the bike path if you’re riding or walking along. Maybe you can see a little Birdfoot Trefoil wildflower.
