Sunday was a perfect beach day at Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore,  on Cape Cod! The weather was sunny and warm with a little breeze. The trolley was running nonstop bringing people to the beach as they were soaking up the beginning of a beautiful holiday week on Cape Cod!

Looks pretty inviting, huh?

We saw quite a few Least Terns on Coast Guard Beach the other day. They are New England’s smallest tern at 9.” They nest in small colonies and make their nests in the sand by scraping it. (Click link for another photograph.)

Beautiful bird, don’t you think? Love the food in his bill! Have you ever seen a Least Tern?

 

The Old Road To Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

The road to Coast Guard Beach looked quite different before the Blizzard of 1978.  (Click on blog to see old photograph from the Cape Cod National Seashore.)

Before the Blizzard of 1978, there used to be hundreds of parking places for people could access the beach. You can see these in the 2nd photograph. It all washed away in the Blizzard of 1978. Now people are shuttled to and from this gorgeous beach.

The first photograph is the old road by the Coast Guard Station that used to lead to the old parking lots. You can see the road on the top left of the old photograph. Now the road just stops on top of the dunes by the edge of the beach. You can view the ocean and the beach from there. You can walk to the beach along a path to the left by the bathhouses. But the huge parking lots and roads are no longer…

Amazing, don’t you think?
