It was such a pretty day to go across the boardwalk on Nauset Marsh on the way to Coast Guard Beach.
No matter what time of year or what the weather, it is always a gorgeous walk and so different every time you go!
It was a gorgeous day for a walk from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach last weekend through the woods and over the salt marsh. It is still a bit cold, especially with the winds, so we haven’t put away our winter parkas yet. Hopefully soon!
I love the walk down to the water through the dunes at Coast Guard Beach. So pretty, don’t you think?
I posted a photograph of Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore, at the end of February after a huge storm when the beach looked huge! It was almost as if all of the sand from Nauset Beach got swept to Coast Guard Beach a couple of miles away.
So, we were very surprised when we took a walk down to Coast Guard Beach last weekend, after another big storm and there was very little beach even at low tide. You can see how high the tide comes in at high tide now. Look at how the waves have dug out the beach. And this is low tide. Wow!
It is truly amazing the force of Mother Nature!
These little sanderlings were gathered together at low tide on Coast Guard Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod. They are such cute little birds and seem to travel as one…in a pack. If one moves to the right, they all do. They love to scurry around on the sandbars. Sanderlings are quite amusing to watch!
Have you ever seen a Sanderling? Such a fun little bird!
Hemenway Landing in Eastham on Cape cod is a wonderful spot to launch your boat for a tour around Nauset Marsh or just to sit and soak up the beautiful views. You can even see Coast Guard Station across Nauset Marsh. There is always something to watch whether it is a Seagill searching for food or a clammer digging for his dinner at low tide.
I couldn’t decide if I liked the horizontal or vertical photograph better. What do you think?
