Lots Of Colorful Buoys On Cape Cod!

There is certainly no shortage of vivid buoys here on Cape Cod. Everywhere you go, there are buoys… in the water, on the side of houses or restaurants, or on a pole. They are everywhere, and so colorful!

Cap’t Cass Restaurant at Rock Harbor in Orleans has some really funky buoys on the side of the restaurant as well as on the fence. It must be one of the nautical attractions of Cape Cod because wherever you look, there are buoys!

Gorgeous Skies Over Rock Harbor On Cape Cod Bay

One of my favorite things to do is to take a walk to the beach at low tide, especially to a beach on Cape Cod Bay. It is always so gorgeous and you can walk out on the flats for miles.

It was low tide about 3:00 pm the other day and a perfect day for a walk. When I got to Boat Meadow Beach the clouds were just beautiful. And then I could see the huge rock by Rock Harbor with the sun shining through the clouds above it.

Pretty spectacular, don’t you think? I love how the sun and clouds are reflected in the tidal pool with the rippled sand from the flats in the foreground.

Rock Harbor At Low Tide On Cape Cod

Rock Harbor in Orleans is always spectacular whether it is high tide or low tide. I loved this photograph of low tide where you can see the flats go out for miles and the beautiful clouds in the sky. You can see the channel and the channel markers that look like trees in the water.

I took the first photograph about 3-4 weeks ago. I took the second photograph just a few days ago. It was low tide and you can still walk way out. But you don’t see the channel markers. I wonder if they got destroyed with all of the ice that we had. It’s also hard to see where the channel is… I bet it will have to be dredged out again this spring and new channel markers put in.
