Phil and I were out taking an early morning hike on one of the trails in Eastham on Cape Cod when we saw a huge flock of Northern Flickers flitting from tree to tree.
This juvenile Northern Flicker perched on this dead branch just long enough for me to take a photograph.
Cure little guy, don’t you think?
The Goldenrod wildflowers at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod are just beautiful!
Take any hike down by the marshes and see the many different wildflowers!
This is one of our favorite picnic spots on the Cape. It doesn’t get much better with the water and beach. You can even see Jeremy Point in the far distance.
You can picnic in the car, on the bench, on the beach, or jump in your kayak and picnic along the shore. Just beautiful!
It was such fun to see the “Sharks in the Park” exhibit in Chatham on Cape Cod. There were painted and decorated sharks everywhere!
Sharks in the Park combines public art with the business community to create a unique Chatham experience. Sponsored by the Chatham Merchants Association.
Local businesses sponsor shark sculptures that are located in Kate Gould Park. The businesses recruit local artists to paint special scenes on their shark and then the sculpture are on display in the park. What a unique idea and so much fun for the entire family!
Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod is one of my favorite places to visit. Every day is different with something new to see.
Wellfleet Bay provides peace and unmatched beauty on the hillsides and shoreline overlooking Wellfleet Harbor. Extensive trails bring you to a panoramic salt marsh, sandy barrier beach, and pine woodlands, each attracting a wide array of wildlife. The sanctuary features a universally accessible trail and an award-winning “green” nature center with numerous exhibits and aquariums.
The hike out to the beaches is spectacular. Don’t forget your binoculars as there is so much to see. I’m sure you will see lots of photographs of this magic place in my future Blogs.
Doane Rock is a glacial rock located in Eastham, MA in Cape Cod National Seashore. It is the largest exposed boulder on Cape Cod. It stands 18 feet high and extends below the ground an estimated 12 feet.
This boulder is named after Deacon John Doane, one of Eastham’s original settlers. The rock was left by the glaciers (18,000-12,000 years ago) between the Salt Pond Visitors Center and Coast Guard Beach.
There are also lots of great picnic tables to enjoy that delicious outdoor lunch! This is one of my favorite picnic locations on Cape Cod, right next to Doane Rock.
