It was a cold and windy early morning at Nauset Beach on Cape Cod, but a glorious day to take a walk. Any day is a glorious day to take a walk on Nauset Beach, or any beach on the National Seashore.
The sun had just gone behind the clouds so it looks almost like dusk.
I loved the wind blowing the spume from the waves.
What do you think?
I was just finishing a little hike at Fort Hill which overlooks Nauset Marsh when I saw this seagull posing on the fence post with Nauset Marsh and the Coast Guard Station in the background. He stayed there for quite a while, changing his pose periodically.
I couldn’t decide which one I liked better… the one where he is looking straight at me (which is the first one I took) or the one that shows his silhouette.
Which one do you like better?
It was a beautiful sunset on Cape Cod Bay. Red sky at night means sailor’s delight… Red sky in the morning means sailor’s warning.
Hmmm. This was 2 nights before a winter storm, so I guess it was a sailor’s delight that the storm was a couple of days out!
There are still a couple of boats in Rock Harbor on Cape Cod. This big fishing boat looks like it has made many fishing trips out into the ocean!
Such a cool place! Have you ever been there? It’s where they dock The Finest Hours rescue boat, the CG 36500 in the summertime for all the tourists to visit!
These two Northern Flickers, part of the woodpecker family, were foraging in the leaves around our yard, looking for some food. I loved how I could get a photograph of the two of them… one so you can see its front and the other so you can see its back. Their markings are amazing.
In this second photograph you can really see its underside which is so pretty and almost looks like down. Look at those black dots on its feathers. Just beautiful…
