The autumn views of Nauset Marsh from Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod are stunning! Love the orange bittersweet berries on the bushes all along the trail.
You can even see Nauset Coast Guard Station in the distance.
Pamet Trail in North Truro offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is one that I just love! You can even take a long walk along the beach which goes for miles. When we were there, a little seal was swimming along the shore.
Pamet Trail has three different trail options: one to the breach of Ballston Beach, one to this ocean overlook and another one to the Bog House where cranberries were harvested years ago.
All three trails are gorgeous and great for the whole family!
We were surprised to see this Northern Gannet diving for food at Coast Guard Beach the other day. At first we weren’t sure what kind of diving bird it was as it plummeted into the ocean over and over again.
Northern Gannets dive vertically into the sea at velocities of up to 62mph. It was just amazing to watch. He would fly around for a bit and then dive head first straight into the water while tucking his wings in like a missile.
And then he flew away. It was fun looking in my bird book to identify what kind of diving bird he was. Have you ever seen a Northern Gannet diving into the sea?
