Beautiful Painted Lady Butterfly On Cape Cod

I took this photograph of this Painted Lady butterfly last September at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary when they were so prolific in this area. They were everywhere! I thought the side view was so cool. I even like that you can only see its camouflage colors.

Lots Of Sand At Newcomb Hollow Beach Parking Lot On Cape Cod

There sure was a lot of sand at the end of Newcomb Hollow Beach parking lot after the storms. When the wind blows the sand onto the parking lots by the beaches, they need to plow the sand away to make room for the cars to park.

You can see how high the sand is at the picnic table. High but still manageable for a picnic at the beach!

High Tide At Boat Meadow On Cape Cod

High tide on Cape Cod Bay has been really high since the storms last winter. Last summer there was plenty of sand to set your beach chair down on at high tide. There is not much sand at high tide now and none as you walk around the corner there.

It will be interesting to see what Mother Nature has in store before summer…
