The Eclectic Chocolate Cafe In Eastham On Cape Cod.

If you want a great cup of coffee, some delicious homemade chocolates, a unique gift for someone special or if you just love the 50s theme, stop at the Chocolate Cafe in Eastham. You will be amazed at all that it has to offer. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

“The Chocolate Cafe has a very eclectic variety of cards and gifts, both salty and sweet.” They even carry a full rack of my Outdoor Eyes Cape Cod Photo Note Cards.

Great Shearwater Rescued After The Nor’easter On Cape Cod.

This Great Shearwater is just one of the many seabirds rescued by Wild Care Cape Cod after the Nor’easter a couple of weeks ago. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

“The Great Shearwater is a common seabird off our Atlantic Coast, seldom coming close to shore except during storms. Often forages in flocks. Commonly feeds around fishing boats, fighting over scraps and offal, seemingly fearless of humans. Although Great Shearwaters are often very numerous in North American waters, they nest only on a few islands in the South Atlantic.”

“This bird has the typically “shearing” flight of the genus, dipping from side to side on stiff wings with few wingbeats, the wingtips almost touching the water. Its flight is powerful and direct, with wings held stiff and straight.”

This was a first for us; we had never seen a Great Shearwater. It was so cool!

Visit the Wild Care Cape Cod Facebook page to follow some of these birds that got washed ashore and see how their stories turned out.

Huge Cruise Ship In Provincetown On Cape Cod!

This huge cruise ship dwarfed everything else in Provincetown Harbor. I could see it as we drove over the causeway the other day and was it big! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I like the 2nd photograph that shows the coastline of Provincetown with Pilgrim Monument in the background and the size of that massive ship.
