First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod.


“First Encounter Beach is a place with historic significance in Eastham on Cape Cod. It was so named because it is the site of the first encounter between Native Americans and the Pilgrims prior to their settling in Plymouth. A tablet on the knoll at the north end of First Encounter Beach marks the location of this first encounter between the Pilgrims and the Native Americans on December 8, 1620.”

Pretty cool history, don’t you think?

Bluebirds High In The Tree On A Cold Morning On Cape Cod.


Many mornings when it is still cold outside, I will look up high in the trees and see the Bluebirds perched up there trying to get the first warmth from the sun before it gets lower in the yard. It’s the only place where there is any sun at that hour and, lucky for me, the leaves haven’t come out yet so I can still see them!

Huge Glacial Rocks At Nickerson State Park On Cape Cod.


There are so many glacial rocks at Nickerson State Park left by the glaciers thousands of  years ago. These were a few that we saw by Cliff Pond. So pretty… and huge! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

You can see the size of them in the 2nd photo.

Beautiful Yellow Daffodils On Cape Cod For Easter!


Spring is coming…slowly! We’ve had a few warm days and a few chillier ones. But, the Daffodils are starting to bloom and bring some vibrant color to the landscape.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter! May the Easter Bunny bring you lots of chocolate and may you find a few minutes to get outside and enjoy everything outside!

Lazy Seal On Nauset Marsh Sandbar On Cape Cod.


I’m always so surprised to see the seals at Nauset Marsh and away from the ocean. They never used to swim in toward the marsh but now they make their way quite far into Nauset Marsh and even up toward Town Cove. (Click blog link for other photo.)

We saw this guy on the sandbar by Nauset Spit. You can see the channel marker nearby showing the boats the channel deep enough to get out on the open water. He looks pretty content, don’t you think?
