There is certainly no shortage of vivid buoys here on Cape Cod. Everywhere you go, there are buoys… in the water, on the side of houses or restaurants, or on a pole. They are everywhere, and so colorful!
Cap’t Cass Restaurant at Rock Harbor in Orleans has some really funky buoys on the side of the restaurant as well as on the fence. It must be one of the nautical attractions of Cape Cod because wherever you look, there are buoys!
It is such a treat to see the Robins at our bird bath here on Cape Cod. When we lived in Connecticut there were always Robins everywhere. On Cape Cod we occasionally see them, but not that often.
This little guy enjoyed his bath and was getting a drink. I love the white around his eyes.

I love it when the sun starts to go down over Cape Cod Bay. No matter what the colors or skies or clouds, it is always spectacular.
Very simple and very pretty. What do you think?
Yesterday morning was spectacular! It was sunny and warm and we knew that it was supposed to rain in the afternoon and all day Sunday. So, the perfect solution… go to the beach while you can! We’ve had a lot of cloudy, rainy days lately.
As you can see, it was glorious! Our “Go To” beach is usually Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore, and rated one of the Top 10 beaches in the USA! And it’s only a 5 minute drive from our home, so it doesn’t get much better!
We walked down to Nauset Spit, where the ocean flows into Nauset Marsh. It was warm, in the 50s, and so pretty. The clouds were amazing. I love the dark blue hue around the clouds.

It was a beautiful day for a hike at Fort Hill, one of our favorite places to hikes. I love to park in the lower parking lot and take the Red Maple Swamp Trail through the swamp on the boardwalk to Hemenway Landing. From there you can hike up to Carving Rock and along Nauset Marsh and up to the overlook.
It doesn’t get much prettier!
There were about 30 Brants at Boat Meadow on Cape Cod Bay the other day. It’s the most I’ve ever seen together. I stopped and took some photographs, but couldn’t get more than 2 in each frame.
Brants have a black head and neck with a white collar, grey underparts and white on their tails. They are about the same size as a Canada Goose. They are common in this area in the winter.
On my way back from my walk to Rock Harbor about 1/2 hour later, they were all gone. Wonder where they went?
