Reflection On A Kettle Pond On Cape Cod


This was such a pretty fall ┬áreflection on one of the the thousands of “kettle ponds” here on Cape Cod. These kettle ponds were formed from the glaciers thousands of years ago.

“Scientists find kettle ponds endlessly fascinating. There is no end of books that explain how, 13,000 or 15,000 years ago, huge blocks of ice left over after the glacier retreated began melting, leaving holes known as kettles that ultimately filled with water.”

As you drive around Cape Cod you can see these ponds, large and small, dotting the landscape wherever you look. They are pretty cool.

Three Ponds Hike in Orleans On Cape Cod


We’ve had some gorgeous days for fall hiking here on Cape Cod. This Three Ponds hike is really pretty as it takes you along the lake’s edges and through the woods. It is a perfect hike for the whole family!

Phil took this photograph as I was enjoying the beautiful fall day along the trail, lost in my own thoughts…

Yellow Wildflower At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod


I saw this pretty yellow wildflower at ┬áthe Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary a few weeks ago. I didn’t know what it was. So I came home and researched my wildflowers books and the internet and I still do not know what kind of wildflower it is.

Can anyone help me with its identification? It would be much appreciated! It is so pretty.
