I love the little Sanderlings as they scurry about looking for food on Coast Guard Beach. These three were dodging the waves to find something to eat. Sanderlings are here on the Cape all year round, so you can frequently see them on the beaches or flying above.
Have you ever seen a Sanderling? Beautiful little shore bird…
I love Nauset Marsh Trail which winds around the Salt Pond by the Visitors Center in Eastham and out to Nauset Marsh. It is so different each time you hike it. It is particularly pretty this time of year with its fall colors and late-flowering bushes.
Pretty, don’t you think? Love those clouds!
I loved this silhouette of this Great Blue Heron fishing at Nauset Marsh. The clouds were just spectacular!

I have seen many wild Japanese Honeysuckle wildflowers blooming on Cape Cod this past summer… and even into the fall. They are a climbing vine with delicate, fragrant, white flowers that grow in pairs, turning yellow with age.
Another invasive plant, the Japanese Honeysuckle can smother out other plants.
The tides in Cape Cod Bay are so drastic that the boats at Boat Meadow Beach are on the sand at low tide. You can walk out for miles at low tide, but must wait for the tides to change to take your boats out.
So pretty, don’t you think?
This little Red Squirrel on the railing at the Beech Forest Trailhead in Provincetown looked like he was posing for a photograph. Or… maybe he was hoping for food?
So cute, don’t you think?
