I was taking a walk on the beach at Boat Meadow when I heard these laughing Gulls squawking at each other. It sounded as though they were laughing at each other back and forth. I watched (and listened) to them for a bit until a Crow flew in and started squawking along with them It was hilarious!
The Laughing Gulls flew away!
I saw this pretty yellow Celandine wildflower at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod this past week. Calendine is a leafy plant with hairy stems and deep yellow 4-petaled flowers in loose clusters. The flowers are about 3/4″ while the plant grows to 1-3 feet from May to July on wooded edges, which is exactly where I saw it.
Have you ever seen a Celandine?
The view of Nauset Marsh from Fort Hill is just spectacular! It was fun to take a little hike and click away.
I love this photograph of Nauset Marsh, which is part of the National Seashore. It was fun to use my app and get a a little different feel to it.
What do you think?
The Double-Crested Cormorants are back on Cape Cod! I saw this flock on the rock that sits out in the bay at Rock Harbor.
Double-Crested Cormorants are black birds with a greenish cast and are about 33″. You can frequently see them along the beach on the rocks or buoys as they spread their wings to dry them while resting.
I finally got my new bike here on Cape Cod and I am ecstatic! There are so many new places to ride to and explore and the Cape Cod Bike Trail, which is right near my home, goes for 40 miles. Each day I try to take a different route which has been so much fun!
I used to love to ride when we lived in Connecticut, but when we moved to Colorado it was so mountainous and the shoulder on the roads was tiny that I never got into biking out there. I really missed it.
So, this is such a big treat! I love it! I am having a blast!
I had to post the very first flower that bloomed in my new yard here in Cape Cod which is a Rose. We planted many trees, shrubs and plants with the butterfly and bird theme, but this Rose was so pretty and reminded me of my Dad who loved Roses.
Pretty color, don’t you think?
