There were a lot of people at Coast Guard Beach, on the National Seashore in Eastham enjoying the spectacular weather this past weekend! It was in the low 60s and just gorgeous. We walked down from Doane Rock and were surprised that the parking lot was full and there were plenty of cars waiting for that prized vacant spot.
It was fun to see so many people on the beach. It reminded me of Christmas a year ago when the temperatures were in the 60s and people were even swimming. No swimmers today, but a lot of toes in the water!
It was really cool to see the cut Eastern Red Cedar trees at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. They are thinning the forest while using the wood to anchor the boardwalk that is being repaired along the Red Maple Swamp Trail.
I knew they were called Eastern red Cedar trees, but I never fully realized why. Look at the inside of the tree. Wow! It is really red!
Part of the Red Maple Swamp Trail has been closed for a number of years, but should reopen this spring. What a treat that will be! This trail makes a loop from Fort Hill through the swamp to Hemenway Landing and then back up to Fort Hill. The views are spectacular.
It is a beautiful hike and a must if you are in the area!
It was another beautiful day for a hike to Coast Guard Beach on the National Seashore on Cape Cod. The clouds were unbelievable! With the Coast Guard Station in the background and Nauset Marsh, it doesn’t get much prettier!
Phil and I took the same photograph… same place, same time., different perspective. What do you think?
I loved the ripples in the sand at low tide here at Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore, on Cape Cod. When I got home and looked at the photograph on my computer, I noticed the little set of bird tracks through it.
Cute, don’t you think? They are quite small… I wonder what kind of bird it was.
It was a glorious day at Fort Hill on the National Seashore on Cape Cod. Wow!
Look at those clouds with Nauset Marsh in the background. It doesn’t get much prettier!
