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!

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?


Nauset Beach On Cape Cod .. Which One Do You Like Better?


We were down at Nauset Beach the other day because the skies and the clouds were just spectacular! Phil and I clicked away and compared our photos. Sometimes we get such different photos from our different perspectives.


Using different apps, we took a photograph of these benches at Nauset Beach. I can’t decide which one I like better. One looks like a warm summer day while the second one looks like a cold winter day.

What do you think? Which one do you like better?


Hundreds Of Birds In The Water Of Nauset Beach In Orleans On Cape Cod


I was taking a glorious walk the other morning on Nauset Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod, enjoying just being out so early on a gorgeous day. It’s amazing the two distinct perspectives you get when you walk down the beach and then turn around and head back.

I did not even see these hundreds of birds in the water on my way down the beach, but on the way back…wow! They were everywhere. The sun was at an angle that i could not tell what type of seabird they were, other than black.

I loved the birds with the waves crashing in the foreground.

What do you think?

Walking In Solitude On Nauset Beach In Orleans On Cape Cod


It was just me and the seagulls… and the beach and the waves. I loved it! Not a person in sight!

Sometimes the solitude of an off-season walk along Nauset Beach, part of the National Seashore, is just what you need to “soothe the soul!”

Laughing Gull At Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod


There is this one rock that emerges out of the water on Nauset Marsh when it is low tide and is usually occupied by a Seagull. This particular Laughing Gull was loving it as he stood there for a long time looking for lunch in the water below.

Laughing gulls are very distinctive with their black “hooded” heads and bright orange beaks. They got their name because when they call, they sound just like they are laughing!

You can see this one is starting to get his “winter plumage” of a black beak. His black hood will turn white during the winter months.

Have you ever seen a Laughing gull?
