Beautiful Orange Sulfur Butterfly At My Home On Cape Cod

This beautiful Orange Sulfur butterfly was flitting from Zinnia to Zinnia at my home here on Cape Cod. I have never seen one before.

Orange Sulfur butterflies are about 2″ in wingspan. They are overall yellow with bright orange and black wing borders- solid in males and broken in females. They have 1-2 red-ringed spots on their hindwings.


Have you ever seen an Orange Sulfur butterfly? Pretty, don’t you think?

Lesser Yellowlegs At The Mass Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary In Wellfleet On Cape Cod

This Lesser Yellowlegs was strutting about Goose Pond at the Mass Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellfleet on Cape Cod. What a beautiful bird.

A Lessler Yellowlegs is about 10.5″ tall with a long bill and  bright yellow legs. We have seen them frequently at the Mass Audubon in Wellfleet. This is a great place to hike through the woods, along the river, out through the marsh and to the beach. There are so many different varieties of birds and wildlife to see.

Walking Out To Nauset Spit On The National Seashore In Eastham On Cape Cod

It was a glorious day to walk out to Nauset Spit on Cape Cod from Coast Guard Station. Nauset Spit is where Nauset Beach splits and lets the water into Nauset Marsh. It is ever changing with the changing of the beach sand.

The last time we had been there was about 10 years ago before we moved to Colorado. We had paddled our kayaks out through Nauset Marsh and had a picnic in that same spot. It was so much fun.

We are definitely looking forward to getting our kayaks out next summer and paddling out to Nauset Spit for a picnic. Can’t wait!

Oyster Boat In Wellfleet On Cape Cod

Wellfleet on Cape Cod is known for its oysters. The  Wellfleet oysters are grown out and harvested in and from the estuaries of Wellfleet Harbor, located in the Northeastern region of Cape Cod Bay, so they are locally grown!

Wellfleet will host their 16th Annual  Oyster Fest on October 15th and 16th which brings in thousands of people for the weekend. It’s supposed to be great fun!

I loved this little oyster boat which is docked in Wellfleet Harbor. I wonder if you can get oysters right there? So cool looking, don’t you think?

Nauset Marsh Clouds On Cape Cod Were Gorgeous!


It was a glorious day to take a hike along Nauset Marsh in Eastham on Cape Cod. As you walk over the bridge there is a little creek on the left where we usually see a Great Blue Heron. In the distance is Coast Guard Beach, one the the Top 10 beaches in the USA! It is spectacular!
