Raking For Oysters On Oyster Sunday At The Salt Pond On Cape Cod!

It was a gorgeous Sunday to be out in the waters looking for oysters at Nauset Salt Pond in Eastham on Cape Cod. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Yesterday, called “Oyster Sunday,” was the first of 3 Sundays in the fall that people can get a “Oyster” license and search for oysters in designated areas at Nauset Salt Pond and the river leading into it.

Looks like fun! This guy was walking back with his bucket full.

Have you ever participated in Oyster Sundays at the Eastham Salt Pond by the visitors center?

Beautiful Swans At The Salt Pond On Cape Cod.

These two swans were swimming together on the salt pond by the visitors center and looked so beautiful. I loved the close up photograph of them both and then the one farther away where you can see the shoreline and the puffy clouds in the sky. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

So pretty, don’t you think?

Gorgeous Skies At The Salt Pond In Eastham On Cape Cod.

The skies were magnificent as we hiked the Salt Pond Trail, also known as Nauset Marsh Trail, the other day.  I took a horizontal photograph and thought that it looked pretty. The sky and clouds were spectacular.  And then I took a vertical one. Wow!

Huge Horseshoe Crab At The Salt Pond in Eastham On Cape Cod

We were taking a walk around the Salt Pond by the Visitor’s Center the other day when we saw this huge horseshoe crab right at the high tide mark. Oh no! It was sitting in the grass and needed to get back to the water.

We hemmed and hawed about how to get it back in the water and came up with a good plan. As Phil lifted it up very carefully so as not to scare it, we realized it was only the shell. Ha! Ha!

The joke was on us!! He really had us fooled!! It looked so real!

Salt Pond Trail In Eastham On Cape Cod Is A Wonderful Hike For The Whole Family


If you haven’t hiked the Salt Pond Trail in Eastham on Cape Cod, put it on your list. It’s part of the National Seashore and takes you through many diverse habitats, even though it is not a long hike.

I loved this photograph of going over the bridge with Nauset Marsh in the background. Aren’t the clouds gorgeous?

Such a  pretty day!
