My Secret Beach On Cape Cod


I love it when I find a special little place on a Cape Cod beach that not too many people know about. I found this little trail to the beach a few weeks ago. It is just spectacular! And no one else was there!

Peace and solitude. It was exquisite!

Great Blue Heron At Nauset Salt Marsh On Cape Cod


This Great Blue Heron, my very favorite bird,  had just landed at Nauset Salt Marsh on Cape Cod. It is always such a treat to see them.

Love his spread wings… such a beautiful bird! Great pose, huh?

Beautiful Greater Yellowlegs At the Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary On Cape Cod



It was low tide at the Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary on Cape Cod so we were able to walk all the way out to the beaches. You have to walk part of the way on a boardwalk that is submerged when the tides are higher.

We were treated to many shorebirds that day darting about the eddies, looking for food.  But this Greater Yellowlegs was absolutely stunning as he waded through the water.

What do you think?

Milkweed Seeds On Cape Cod In Black And White Photography


Every time I walk home from downtown, I pass these Milkweed plants. I love how, in the fall, the pods open and the white fluff starts oozing out filled with black seeds ready for the wind to whisk them away!

Pretty, don’t you think?
