Walking To Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod


I loved this photograph of the beach fence as you walk down to Coast Guard Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod. I thought the fence with the Wild Roses were so simple yet so pretty.

Coast Guard Beach, on the National Seashore,  was  voted the #6 Best Beach in the USA again this year! It is a gorgeous beach that stretches for miles…

Put it on your Bucket List if you haven’t been there! It’s hard to beat!

Yellow And Orange Scotch Broom Wildflower On Cape Cod


I saw this interesting Scotch Broom wildflower on one of my walks around Eastham on Cape Cod. The Scotch Broom has a really pretty yellow and orange 1″ flower on a plant that is about 3-5 feet.

They bloom in May and June in sandy soil along the coast which is probably why I saw it near the beach.  Have you ever seen a Scotch Broom wildflower?

Red-Tailed Hawk In Our Yard On Cape Cod


This Red-Tailed Hawk was sitting on the branch of one of the trees in our yard here on Cape Cod. It was minding its own business but the other birds would have nothing of him! He was much too close to their nests and young.

So the Robins and Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles and Catbirds all sat on branches near him and yelled at him!  You can see the little Robin right behind him. He was not happy! He had a nest about 20 feet away!

Snowy Egret At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod


This Snowy Egret was wading at Goose Pond at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, looking for that perfect fish. I love his black legs and bright yellow feet.

The Snowy Egret is about 24″ tall and all white with a long neck and a slender bill.  During courtship, they have long, lacy plumes on their back, chest and crown.

Don’t you just love his feet?

A Glorious Day For Biking On Cape Cod


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…

Gorgeous Pink Wildflower At Fort Hill On Cape Cod


I saw this gorgeous pink wildflower on the side of the trail at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod and I have no idea what kind of wildflower it is! I can’t find it in any of my wildflower books or on the internet. Hmmm.

I think it is so pretty. It is very small, only about 1/2″, but so distinctive. I love the center… so delicate. Can anyone identify this wildflower?  Isn’t it gorgeous?
