The kite surfers were enjoying the very windy day at First Encounter Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod last weekend. There were quite a few of them out there.
It looks like so much fun, don’t you think?
It was a gorgeous, sunny day at White Crest Beach in Wellfleet, very warm for late November. The shadows were starting across the high, high dunes as the afternoon sun was getting lower. Just spectacular, don’t you think?
I picked this photograph to post today in honor of Phil’s birthday which is today. This was his favorite beach to surf back in his surfing days. So, Happy Birthday, Phil, may your memories here be full! And may you have an awesome day!
It was a gorgeous, warm day to take a hike from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach. One of my favorite parts of the hike is when you can go off the main trail and onto another one that takes you around Nauset Marsh, which is part of the National Seashore. The cattails are high and blowing in the wind as you cross the little boardwalk. You can see the abundance of red Winterberry berries on the side of the trail.
One of those “pinch me” moments!
Pretty, don’t you think?
I haven’t been able to get a really good photograph of a Swan since we moved to Cape Cod 2 years ago. They are usually too far away to get a good shot or the lighting isn’t right. When hiking a couple of weeks ago, there was a male, a female and a juvenile swan swimming in one of the little kettle ponds along our hike. I thought, “This is my lucky day!”
I clicked away and when I got home , it was the juvenile Swan who stole my heart. I just loved this photograph of the younger, not quite white Swan with similar coloring of the water.
What do you think?
The Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail is a beautiful hike through the scrub bushes, the pine forest, over White Cedar Swamp on a boardwalk and then back to the trailhead. It has so many different things to see.
I took this photograph as we were hiking through the woods. It’s a soft, pine needled trail which meanders up and down to the swamp. It’s perfect this time of the year because there are no mosquitoes!
It’s a great hike for the whole family and very diverse for the kids!
You can see these beautiful red berries all over Cape Cod this time of year. They are so pretty and remind me of the holidays that will soon be here.
I am not sure what kind of bush they grow on, as the berries seem to be in a line on the branch. Can anyone help me identify it?
Thank you for the identification of Winterberries!
