This beautiful Eastern Kingbird has been hanging around our yard all summer. He loves to sit up on a branch high in the trees and come down for an occasional drink. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Have you ever seen an Eastern Kingbird?
I never knew there was a Coast Guard Beach in North Truro until I posted a blog about Coast Guard Beach a few days ago and I got a response from someone who lives in North Truro asking if this was the North Truro Coast Guard Beach. Hmmm…..
I quickly got on google and found that there was indeed a Coast Guard Beach in North Truro. Wow! I never would have known.
I was on my way up to Provincetown so, on the way home, I stopped and took a few photographs of this Coast Guard Beach. So pretty, don’t you think?
Thank you for the enlightening! And… your email made my day!
The bright orange Trumpet Creepers at Fort Hill are just spectacular this year! (Click on blog link for other photos.)
You can see in the 2nd photo how they got their name… they are shaped just like a trumpet!
They grow to be 12′ tall and bloom till September, so you still have plenty of time to see them by the side of the road going up to the overlook.
If you ever walk over the bridge on Bridge Road, stop and look over the side into the creek. You never know what you might see! (Click on blog link for other photos.)
Yesterday I was walking to the beach when I looked over and saw several Diamond-backed Terrapins swimming in the creek. They are so beautiful. I love it when they stick their little nose above water.
“Northern Diamond-backed Terrapins inhabit marshes which border quiet salt or brackish tidal waters. They can also be found in mud flats, shallow bays, coves, and tidal estuaries.”
Have you seen any of these terrapins swimming in the creek? It’s such a treat to see one… never mind several!
“Located right by the docks at Rock Harbor in Orleans, MA, Young’s Fish Market is the perfect place to pick up a lobster roll and your fresh fish, fresh lobster or fresh shellfish for lunch or dinner! Walk the flats, check out the charter boats, and stroll over to Young’s for the catch of the day. You won’t find a more quality or picturesque fish and shellfish market on Cape!”
This is so true and one of our favorite places on Cape Cod!
I looked out the window yesterday and 4 little Bluebird chicks were sitting around our tiny, little birdbath, trying to take a bath. It was just precious! (Click on blog link for other photos.)
We had some baby Bluebirds here about a month ago, so this must be a 2nd brood. What a treat!
It doesn’t get much cuter!
