Secret Bench On The Salt Marsh On Cape Cod.

176 views

I discovered this secret bench that overlooks the salt marsh a while back. It’s such a nice place just to go and sit and relax (when there isn’t any snow!) and the views are extraordinary. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

It’s very hard to take a photograph of the bench from behind because there are so many scraggly bushes about. But, with the snow, it was much easier to get there as it covered the bushes.

So, I took the first photograph when the tide was low. I thought it was really pretty. I went back the next day to get one at high tide, thinking it was cloudy with no blue sky and it wouldn’t be as nice. But, I almost like it better. What do you think?

 

 

Gorgeous Hooded Merganser At Great Pond On Cape Cod.

I have wanted a decent photograph of a Hooded Merganser for a long time, but never seem to get one. We stopped at Great Pond to see if there were any birds around and there he was.

The Hooded Merganser is quite distinctive with its black head with a distinct crest and large white patch when raised and bright yellow eyes. Gorgeous bird, don’t you think?

Have you ever seen a Hooded Merganser?
