We pulled out our heavier fall jackets and mittens for a hike at Wiley Park in Eastham this morning. It was gorgeous with the fall colors starting to really turn.
This bridge separates the pond and the lake and is so pretty. There was a Swan swimming about in the pond this morning.
Have You ever been to Wiley Park? There are many different trails to hike.
One of the trails in the Pamet Trail Area in North Truro on Cape Cod goes to a stunning overlook where, during a winter storm in 2013, the Atlantic Ocean breached the huge sand dunes on Ballston Beach and sent surging waves up the Pamet River all the way to Route 6. It is unbelievable how the coastline changed during that winter storm.
You can see in this photograph how powerful the breach was that winter day as it broke through the dunes.
Pamet Trail is great hike and worth the effort to see these spectacular views. A hike for the whole family!
Yesterday was one of the most beautiful days that I have seen here on Cape Cod! The trails were busy with bikers and hikers and the beaches were busy with people enjoying the spectacular day!
Some kids were even in the water! Amazing for October 11th, huh?
It doesn’t get much better than this!
I’ve only seen 2 types of butterflies since we arrived here on Cape Cod a month ago…. a white one and this pretty yellow Clouded Sulphur butterfly.
It was the same species that I saw a lot of in Colorado.
So pretty, don’t you think? Love his eye!
We had our first sighting of a Red Fox at the Audubon Sanctuary in Wellfleet on Cape Cod the other day. He was walking through the woods and then lay down for a nap.
It was pretty cool as we had never seen one here before.
Have you ever seen a Red Fox? Look at that bushy tail!
Those of you who have followed my Enjoy Estes Park Blog for years know “Manny,” my good friend from back east. He loved reading my Blog and commented eloquently every day.
And then he got sick and was in the hospital for a while last spring. He has since moved to a new assisted living home in Massachusetts.
I spoke to him a couple of days ago and he had a hard time remembering me but… as soon as I mentioned my Dad and how we used to drive up and take him out to lunch, he remembered my Dad and me! He loved my Dad and they had a great time together. He was thrilled that we have moved to Cape Cod because that is where we met him about 18 years ago, at the Audubon Bird Sanctuary in Wellfleet.
So, Manny is doing well. He is a bit forgetful at times and can’t quite master the computer like he used to but… he lives only 10 minutes away from my daughter, so I know I will see him again! It was so great to get back in touch with him. He truly is a special person.
This is the photograph I took one year ago when my Dad and I were out to lunch with him.
