This flock of birds was flying by on the shore of Wellfleet Bay in migration formation so we quickly got our cameras out and clicked away. And there, as if forming a circle above, was part of a rainbow as we looked up.
Very cool. Wishing you all a Happy New Year and may you find a rainbow in the New Year!
This Seagull was so much fun to watch as it was trying to open a clam that it had found at the beach inlet in the water. First he leaned headfirst down to get the clam. And then he deposited it on the sand and stared at it.
He then put it back in his beak and started to fly, all of a sudden dropping it on a rock in the water.
He proceded to find it under the watwer, pick it up and swim to shore and have himself a feast. He was one mightly proud seagull!
Pretty amazing, huh? He not only knew where there was a rock under water, but knew exactly where to retrieve the clam once it was smashed.
I loved this reflection of the channel markers at Rock Harbor in Orleans on Cape Cod. The channel markers, which are trees, are used to guide the boats in and out of Rock Harbor.
The water was like glass so you could really see their reflection. I thought it was so cool how the markers are refracted at such an angle as they hit the water.
What do you think?
We took advantage of many gorgeous winter days to walk along the beaches in Cape Cod, especially Coast Guard Beach which has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world! Henry David Thoreau, in his book Cape Cod, named Coast Guard ‘The Great Beach’. A fitting name as the beach seems to go on forever sharing sands with other famous names such as Marconi and Nauset.
This was a perfect day for a walk on Coast Guard Beach! The temperatures were in the 60s and just glorious!
Christmas Day 2015 on Cape Cod will surely be one to remember. The temperatures on Coast Guard Beach were in the 60s and the beaches were packed with people walking, picnicking, swimming (yes!) and surfing!
What a wonderful way to spend Christmas Day!
I love how this is simple wreath is hung on the bench outside of the Coast Guard Station in Eastham on Cape Cod. It says it all, perfectly!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!
