Coast Guard Beach Dunes On Cape Cod From Last Year To Today

When Phil took this photograph of me in front of the dunes on Coast Guard Beach the other day, the dunes looked pretty high. So I pulled up a Blog that I had written last February which was very similar.

You can see the big difference in the height of the dunes from last year to this year. Wow! It looks like the sand on the beach has washed out the bottom of the dunes. The water now comes almost all the way up to the dunes at high tide, so I wonder what will happen this summer when people want to go to the beach. Will they have to wait until low tide?

Maybe Mother Nature will fix it by the summer…

Gorgeous Hike On The Pamet Trails In Truro On Cape Cod

Yesterday was a gorgeous day for a hike on the Pamet Trails in Truro. There are so many different hikes that you can take: the overlook of Ballston Beach at Bearberry Hill East Summit, the overlook of the cranberry bogs at Bearberry Hill Summit West, The Bog House and the different trails over the dunes to the beautiful beach.

One of my favorite parts of the hike is the huge dune that you can hike up and then descend to the beach below. The first photograph is going up the dune and the second one is me climbing back up to the top from the beach. Phil took that one. What an awesome hike!

Perfect for the whole family! And perfect for this time of year. It is pretty secluded so you don’t get the winds and… we were the only ones out on the trail! Love it!

Paddle Surfing At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod In January

We were so shocked to see someone in the water as we finished a nice walk down Coast Guard Beach. The day was spectacular: sunny, in the 30s, and no wind.

I looked at Phil and said, “Is that someone in the water?” “Yes!” Wow! ¬†And he kept paddling farther out and farther out. He was really far out and the waves were huge. But then he caught an awesome wave and had ” the ride of his life!” Unbelievable!

How cool for the middle of January on Coast Guard Beach?

Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod Was Spectacular Yesterday!

It was a glorious day to take a walk on Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore. After all of the frigid weather we’ve had and a forecast of snow tomorrow, we headed out for a walk on the beach. It was chilly enough to need a winter parka and mittens, but you really didn’t need a hat. ¬†Amazing for January!

Gorgeous, don’t you think?

Enjoying A Walk On Coast Guard Beach, Part Of The National Seashore, On Cape Cod

Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore, is one of the most spectacular beaches in the United States. This time of year, you often do not see another soul on the beach.

We were enjoying the walk, the solitude and peacefulness of the beach and the waves.

It doesn’t get much better…
