Walking To Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod Is Spectacular!

My son and I took a wonderful walk to Coast Guard Beach in Eastham when he was here visiting last week. It was early in the morning so there was still a dusting of snow on the bridge at Nauset Marsh.

Beautiful photograph, don’t you think? I liked it so much I used it as my screensaver!

If you have never walked to Coast Guard Beach, put it on your Bucket List… it is worth every second!

Beautiful Red-Bellied Woodpecker In Our Yard On Cape Cod

The Red-bellied Woodpecker is back in our yard here on Cape Cod! We’ve heard his call a lot lately, but haven’t seen him in a while.

I love watching him go up and down the tree, searching for insects, or on our suet holder. He is such a beautiful bird!

Have you ever seen a Red-bellied Woodpecker? Funny how he has red on his head, not on his belly!

Nauset Beach In Orleans On Cape Cod Is All Closed Up For The Winter


Nauset Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod is all boarded up for the winter. Of course, the beach is always open and always gorgeous.

I thought this looked like and old-time photograph of the truck and the lifeguard stand in front of the facilities building.

Pretty cool, don’t you think?

The Christmas decorations at the Chatham Bars Inn on Cape Cod are just spectacular! This lifesize Gingerbread House is amazing!  i could tell it was real because of the smell of the gingerbread cookies!

There is also a model train exhibit complete with gingerbread houses and stations, etc.

Very cool, don’t you think?
