Enjoying Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

It was a gorgeous beach day and people were certainly taking advantage of the perfect weather to spend some time at Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore and rated one of the Top 10 Beaches in the USA.  Looks like summer is here!

Nesting Piping Plovers At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

If you take a walk down Coast Guard Beach, you will see most of the upper beach to the right is cordoned off  with stakes and string to keep the public off of that area. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Within the area you can see little cages that have been put over the nesting Piping Plovers so that a predator cannot reach the eggs or the chicks. The birds can easily get in and out.

We are so lucky that these precious little  Piping Plovers come back every year to nest on Coast Guard Beach!

Coast Guard Station In Eastham On Cape Cod Is Always So Beautiful!

Whether it’s summer or winter, cloudy or sunny, Coast Guard Station is always beautiful. Here’s a few facts, if you didn’t know…

One of the original nine stations was constructed at Nauset. It was located about 350 yards southeast of the present building. Shoreline erosion compelled the construction of a new station. The old station remained in service until 1937, when it was replaced by the present structure. The present building was in service as a Coast Guard Station until 1958.

The building is now the Cape Cod National Seashore’s residential environmental education program facility. Known as NEED, it offers educational groups an opportunity to experience the natural and historical wonders of Cape Cod. The building is not open to the general public, but visitors are able to walk around the grounds and enjoy the ocean views.”

There is so much history on Cape Cod!
