Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore, was recently voted #5 of the Best 10 beaches in the USA.
My son and I took a walk on Coast Guard Beach when he was here… we were the only ones on the beach.
It doesn’t get much prettier…
There are still a lot of red berries on the bushes and shrubs here on Cape Cod that you can see along the roads and trails while hiking. I saw these on the hike from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach. There were quite a few in some very tall bushes. I guess the birds have not eaten them all yet.
I thought these were so pretty, especially during the holiday season. What do you think?
I love to see the Red-Throated Loon in the water off of Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod. It is such an elusive seabird as it continuously dives for its food.
This Loon just surfaced and was looking around, so we got a minute to click away.
Beautiful bird, don’t you think?
I’ve seen quite a few of these Yellow-legged Meadowhawk dragonflies in the past few weeks, but they have never landed long enough for me to get a photograph. This one was on the side of the trail going from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach. It’s a gorgeous hike.
This Yellow-legged Meadowhawk is reddish-brown with a reddish-orange thorax. It’s wings are clear and its legs are yellowish. They are very common late in the season.
Look at that little face! Wow!!
