I loved this black and white photograph of one of the hiking trails at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. If you park in the first parking lot on the left before you go up to the overlook of Nauset Marsh, that trail will take you by these trees and on a wonderful hike through the meadows, swamps, woodlands and by the marshes.
It’s a must if you get to Fort Hill. Wonderful hike… not too long and absolutely spectacular!
We’re waiting for the spring-like weather to come to Cape Cod.
I took this photograph at Marconi Beach in Wellfleet last Sunday when the temperatures were about 30 degrees with 60 mile an hour winds. It felt more like Colorado weather than Cape Cod weather.
But a pretty photograph with the snowy beach and the storm clouds, don’t you think?
We had the most beautiful winter here on Cape Cod and ever since spring started, it has been pretty dreary and cold. It snowed off and on Sunday and Monday, with some bouts of really heavy blizzard-like conditions!
I had to take the photograph yesterday from Orleans. It was snowing again!
There is a really cool stone foundation at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. I’ve looked on the internet to see what it was for but haven’t come up with anything, other than the countryside was used for agriculture back in the day. Maybe this was an old house on the property?
You can see the foundation to the right as you walk back down from the top of Fort Hill overlooking Nauset Marsh. As you hike around Fort Hill and across the meadows, you can see the many old stone walls that were used for farming way back when.
Do you know what the foundation at Fort Hill was?
It was a beautiful morning here on Cape Cod so we decided to go out for a picnic breakfast. The temps were a bit chilly so we opted to stay in the car.
I loved this photograph of the sky over Cape Cod Bay from the dashboard of our car. It looks almost retro, don’t you think?
The hike to Coast Guard Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod is spectacular and diverse. You walk through the woods on a wonderful little trail listening to all of the birds along the way and then along Nauset Marsh where you can see Great Blue Herons and Great White Egrets as well as many other birds.
The hike takes you over a bridge in the marsh with breath-taking views of Nauset Marsh and then back through a little trail in the woods up to Coast Guard Station.
From there you can walk along Coast Guard Beach which goes for miles, sit at a picnic table and enjoy a scenic picnic, relax on a bench and wallow in the beauty or turn around and head back. It is definitely one of my favorite hikes on Cape Cod! Not too long and just perfect!
