Yesterday was a gorgeous day… sunny with temps in the high 40s. It felt like spring, after all of the cold and snowy weather that we’ve had the past few weeks.
Phil and I took a nice walk on Boat Meadow Beach. The tide was low and the views were spectacular. Little did we know that when we moved here this would be in our backyard! It doesn’t get much prettier.
The trails to the beach in Wellfleet are so different and so pretty. These 2 trails lead out to the ocean, opposite the harbor side.
Love the clouds in the background. What do you think?
“On March 9 of 2013 Atlantic Hurricane cut a 100-foot wide opening in the narrow barrier dune at Ballston Beach in Truro, on Cape Cod. Tons of seawater surged into the freshwater marshes of the upper Pamet River eventually reaching Route 6, and briefly turning the end of Cape Cod into an island.”
Just last year the dunes on Ballston Beach eroded so much from the 2 Nor’easters that we had in the winter that one of the homes on Ballston Beach had to be taken down. It was a sad day.
I took this photograph from the lookout on the Pamet Trail where you can see where the dunes were washed away during the storm in 2013. It is just incredible what Mother Nature can do.
Sunday was another glorious day, between the 2 winter storms, to get out of the house and take a long walk. We learned that the beach is the perfect place to walk in the winter. (Click on the link to see the amazing clouds.) If you bundle up, it doesn’t get much better. There is minimal snow and no ice on the beach.
Sunday was gorgeous… sunny, 40 degrees with little wind. Look at those clouds and the blue, blue water. The sound of the waves was so medicinal… perfect day for a walk on Nauset Beach!
With snow on Thursday and more snow forecast for today, we took a nice walk on Coast Guard Beach yesterday afternoon. It was just gorgeous with temps in the 30s with no wind…perfect!
You still could see a bit of snow still on the beach, but the tides had washed most of it away. There were only a couple of other people on the beach, so we had it pretty much to ourselves…
The first photograph is walking back from Nauset Spit toward Coast Guard Station, which you can see. The 2nd photograph is looking the opposite direction from the entrance toward Nauset Light.
When summer comes, this bike rack at Coast Guard Beach, part of the National seashore, will be full. Coast Guard Beach was again rated in the Top 10 Beaches in the USA. Very cool. And it’s only 5 minutes from our home! It doesn’t get much better…
