Cute, Little Song Sparrow Getting Ready For A Bath At Our Home On Cape Cod!


We have so many different species of birds that come to our bird bath, for either a drink or a bath. They especially like it in the winter when many of the ponds and bird baths are frozen. We have a little heater in ours which keeps it from freezing, so the birds can always get a drink.

When we were building our home 3 years ago, that was one thing on our list that the electrician couldn’t quite understand. Yes, we wanted a plug out by the bird bath so we could have a heated bird bath all winter long. It’s a win, win for all of us!


Our Wiley Park Loop Hike On Cape Cod Is On The AllTrails App.


One of our favorite hikes in this area is at Wiley Park. It is so close to home , easily accessible and always a new adventure. A photograph of the entire hike is at the end of the blog.

You can park your car on Herringbrook Road and hike a nice 1.9 mile loop through the woods, along the shores of Great Pond and over the bridge to its attached kettle pond. It is really pretty any time of the year. There are many little off-shoot trails so you can lengthen or shorten your hike as you like.

It is a very easy hike and fun for the whole family!





Facing South On Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.


I posted 2 photographs yesterday of the gorgeous clouds on Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore. No matter which way you looked the clouds were amazing.

I turned around facing the opposite direction, looking toward Nauset Spit, and this is what I saw. Beautiful, don’t you think?

Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod In Horizontal or Vertical?


With temperatures in the mid 60s the other day, Coast Guard Beach on the National Seashore was the perfect place to take a walk. It felt like mid-May. Unbelievable!

The clouds were spectacular! I took a horizontal and thought was pretty special. And then I took a vertical. Wow! I can’t decide which one I like better. What do you think?

New Sand At Nauset Beach On Cape Cod.


When we took a ride to Nauset Beach last week, we were surprised to see how much work was being done to the parking lot and the sand dunes. They have brought in huge amounts of sand to build up the dunes. (There are additional photographs at the end of the blog.)

They have also taken some of the parking lot away to make room for the extra sand as the ocean keeps moving inward.

The first photograph is of the restrooms. You can see there is only a small strip of sand dune between the building and the beach. The ocean looks mighty close. In the next 2 photographs you can see where the parking lot has been dug out and sand piled on. It is an amazing work in progress.

We’ll ┬ákeep you posted as they work on ever popular Nauset Beach before the summer. Amazing, don’t you think?
