We were taking a little hike down to Coast Guard Beach along Nauset Marsh on Cape Cod when I saw my favorite bird out in the tall grass. This Great Blue Heron was standing there, pruning himself. Look at those feathers… just beautiful!
On our way back he was moving around and you could tell he was looking for a meal in the little tributaries coming out from Nauset Marsh.
It was a glorious day for a hike at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. The sun was shining, the skies were blue and the clouds were breath-taking.
You can take a long hike or a short hike, a hike through the swamps, a hike through the trees, a hike through the meadows or a hike along the spectacular marshes.
And if you don’t want to take a hike or a walk, you can park your car at the top of Fort Hill and take in some of the most spectacular views on Cape Cod!
The pretty, little white Snowdrop flowers that I posted a couple of weeks ago are blooming on Cape Cod and are beautiful! Snowdrops have 3 petals and a green coloring under them.
The first photograph is of the flower as it faces downward. The second photograph is looking up into the flower. Exquisite, don’t you think?
I thought it most appropriate to post this Snowdrop flower today because it is the 2nd day of spring and we are supposed to get “snow!” Only an inch or so… Thank goodness! The forecast yesterday was for 4-8 inches!
It was the perfect morning to pack a picnic breakfast and head out to the beach. Boat Meadows in Eastham on Cape Cod was the place to be. Just look at those clouds.
It was a glorious day with the temperature in the 60s. It feels a lot like spring…
Have you had a picnic yet?
It was just me and the Seagulls on Nauset Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod early one morning. I loved the solitude.
This clam shell says it all…enjoying an early morning walk on the beach with no one else around.
I saw this turkey in Dennis on Cape Cod the other day as I was parked in a parking lot. He was not the least bit intimidated by me. As a matter of fact, he almost looked like he was posing for the picture.
Love the feathers, don’t you?
