The flats at First Encounter Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod Bay are just amazing. They go out for miles. I loved the clouds in this photograph. Doesn’t it look like a huge white jet flying above?
It was such a pretty day to take a walk on the beach with the storm coming in later that day. The clouds were amazing!
I loved this photograph of Coast Guard Station with the dark sky and ominous-looking clouds.
What do you think?
Sunday was absolutely gorgeous here on Cape Cod… sunny with the temps in the high 40s with a little wind. Perfect day for a walk on Nauset Beach.
There were a lot of people on the beach near the parking lot, but once you got a little ways away, you had the beach to yourself.
Gorgeous, don’t you think?
The weather is hopefully getting warmer and we’ll be able to start packing a picnic and enjoy the gorgeous Cape Cod views! This is one of our favorite places for a picnic… or to read a book… or just to sit and relax and enjoy the spectacular, ever changing views! (Click for another photo!)
The first photograph is of the benches facing the water while the second photograph is looking from the beach back to the benches.
It doesn’t get much better!
Across the harbor from the Wellfleet Pier is a really cool jetty and beach that look to be open to the public. I’m not sure if you need a sticker in the summer. We decided to take a ride over and to look around.
Right next to the parking lot is a huge pile of shells… about 2-3 feet high. Without looking, I figured they had to be Oyster shells as Wellfleet is famous for its Wellfleet Oysters. But when looking closer, they are Scallop shells. Hmmm. Why would there be a huge pile of Scallop shells there? It looks to be a place where people can launch their smaller boats from the beach. But how did the Scallop shells get there? And why were they there? Is Wellfleet known for its Scallops too?
I did a little research and learned that the fishermen usually shuck the fresh scallops before selling them to the restaurants. But I couldn’t find out much more than that.
Does anyone know the answer as to why they are there? It would be really cool to find out!
