Windblown Sand Dunes At First Encounter Beach on Cape Cod… Two Perspectives!

107 views

I  loved this simple photograph of the windblown dune at First Encounter Beach in Eastham, Most of the footprints have been blown away. I took several photos of this dune. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

I couldn’t decide if I liked the 1st one or the 2nd one better. The 2nd one tells a much different story as you can see the windblown tree  and bushes with branches only on one side and the dramatic clouds in the sky.

Which one do you like better?

 

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?
