It was a gorgeous, warm day last weekend at Coast Guard Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod… a perfect day for a picnic and a walk on the beach.
We were so surprised to see so many paddleboard surfers out in the water. It almost looked like a summer day!
What a cool sight to see in the middle of winter!
This is one of our favorite picnic spots on the Cape. It doesn’t get much better with the water and beach. You can even see Jeremy Point in the far distance.
You can picnic in the car, on the bench, on the beach, or jump in your kayak and picnic along the shore. Just beautiful!
Doane Rock is a glacial rock located in Eastham, MA in Cape Cod National Seashore. It is the largest exposed boulder on Cape Cod. It stands 18 feet high and extends below the ground an estimated 12 feet.
This boulder is named after Deacon John Doane, one of Eastham’s original settlers. The rock was left by the glaciers (18,000-12,000 years ago) between the Salt Pond Visitors Center and Coast Guard Beach.
There are also lots of great picnic tables to enjoy that delicious outdoor lunch! This is one of my favorite picnic locations on Cape Cod, right next to Doane Rock.
