Where Is All The Sand On Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod?

144 views

If you walk down Coast Guard Beach to Nauset Spit at low tide, you can see where all of the sand on Coast Guard Beach has gone. The sandbars are huge, where I’ve never seen sandbars before. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

It looks like all of the sand missing from the end of the trail by Coast Guard Station has moved down to the end of the beach, making this end of the beach huge. Love the patterns in the sand at low tide.

What do you think?

 

The Piping Plover Chicks On Cape Cod Grow So Fast!

We couldn’t believe how big the little Piping Plover chicks had gotten in the past couple of weeks. It is amazing how fast they grow. We saw this one, as well as many other babies, at Coast Guard Beach.

Beautiful little birds, don’t you think?

Lots of Diamondback Terrapins Swimming In The Creek On Cape Cod!

I was taking a late afternoon walk to the beach when I noticed that all of the wire protecting the terrapins along the salt marsh was removed. Hmmm… The females must have already laid their eggs and were back at the salt marsh. (Click on blog link to see more photos.)

I looked out over the bridge and was I in for a big treat! There were Diamondback Terrapins everywhere. They were floating and swimming and diving. It was spectacular to watch.

The first 2 photographs are of them swimming about. The 3rd photograph is of  2 of them diving down under water. In the last photograph, I could only fit 4 terrapins  in one frame, although there were 7 in the water at that time.

Just beautiful, don’t you think? I love that first guy looking up at me!
