Overlooking Ballston Beach In Truro On Cape Cod.

The view overlooking Ballston  Beach from the Pamet Cranberry Bog Trail is just spectacular. (Click on blog link for other photo. )

And then you see this house on stilts right on the edge of the dunes and you wonder what Mother Nature has in store for it…

Love The Piping Plovers At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

It seems like we spend the last part of the winter waiting patiently for our favorite birds to return  for the new season. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

We saw a few Piping Plovers scurrying about the beach the other day. They were down by the water and up high on the beach running in and out of the seaweed. We didn’t see any babies… maybe it’s still a bit early. We didn’t see any nests either, but they are usually  well hidden.

Have you seen any Piping Plovers this season?



Pretty Purple Spiderwort Wildflowers Are Blooming In Provincetown On Cape Cod.

I remember seeing this beautiful wildflower last year, the purple Spiderwort, blooming along the parking lot at the Beech Forest Trailhead, and there it was again this year.

“The three-petaled spiderwort flowers are usually blue to purple, but may also be pink, white, or red. They only remain open for a day (blooming in morning hours and closing at night), but the multiple flowers will continually bloom for up to four to six weeks in summer.”

Have you seen the pretty purple Spiderworts in the parking lot?

Coyote, Scoping Out The Area, At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

We frequently see coyotes at Fort Hill, searching about for a meal or just laying down basking in the sun. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

It was a quiet morning when we saw this coyote traverse the entire field and then stop in front of us to look out onto Nauset Marsh, as if scoping out the area for his next meal.

I thought they were just beautiful photos. What do you think?
