The Paul Fulcher Memorial Bonfire at Nauset Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod last Saturday was an amazing event!
The bonfire was part of Orleans Pond Coalition’s “Celebrate our Waters” annual event. This entire event was held on Friday through Sunday. It was unbelievable! There were events for everyone… from museum tours to hikes to bird watching to sailing to paddle boarding or kayaking and boat tours of the harbor and much more. These events were all day and free!
We went down to Nauset Beach about 5:00 on Saturday evening and had a picnic on the beach while we listened to the Lower Cape Concert Band.
Over 3,000 people came to the bonfire which was lit just after dusk. It was so much fun and people were having a blast!
If you didn’t make it this year, put it on your calendar for next year and don’t miss Orlean’s “Celebrate our Waters.” It’s a great weekend event!
I was taking a walk the other day in Orleans on Cape Cod when I saw this pretty orange wildflower that looks like it is dried. It was so interesting and so vibrant in color.
Does anyone know what kind of wildflower it is? I will have to get some new wildflower, birds, wildlife, etc . books for the Cape Cod area. A new adventure…
Phil and I were invited to the annual 4 Chambers of Commerce get-together at Truro Vineyards last week. Business people from Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet and Eastham tasted some wine, ate delicious h’ors d’oeurves donated by some of the local restaurants and networked with each other.
What a great way to meet new people and see some old ones. We had a blast!
It was really low tide at Beach Meadows on Cape Cod. People were enjoying the huge beaches, while the sailboats were beached until the tide comes in again.
We recently moved from Estes Park, Colorado to Cape Cod. And we are lucky in that we arrived before they put the shovel to the dirt.
We are so excited to be back on the east coast and near the water and beaches and the grandkids!! 🙂
So I thought I’d post a few photographs of our new home as it goes up… so exciting!
There were fields and fields of Queen Anne’s Lace wildflowers everywhere as we went for a hike at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. They are such a pretty and delicate white wildflower.
And then, as they go by, they shrivel up and turn almost inside out.
Have you ever seen Queen Anne’s Lace wildflowers?
