Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod is really cool. Three are lots of boardwalks to walk on as well as some beautiful trails.

Spectacular Sunset On September 11th On Cape Cod Bay


The sunset on September 11th  on Cape Cod Bay was spectacular! I had just sat to read my book when I looked out the window and saw some interesting colors in the sky.

I quickly jumped in the car and drove down to the beach on Cape Cod Bay and the sunset was breathtaking!

It doesn’t get much prettier, do you think?

Canoe Or Kayak From Hemenway Landing On Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod

There were lots of canoes and kayaks in the water and  on land at Hemenway Landing in Eastham on Cape Cod. What a great place to launch your canoe or kayak and paddle out to Nauset Spit. It doesn’t get much prettier!

But be careful of the tides and the channel markers so you don’t get stuck in the mud at low tide!

The Coast Guard Boat CG36500 At Rock Harbor On Cape Cod

It was such fun to go aboard the Coast Guard’s boat, CG36500 which is docked at Rock Harbor for the season. You can go inside and learn all about the greatest Coast Guard small boat rescue in history. It is an amazing story. The movie, The Finest Hours, came  out last January is all about the unbelievable feat!


When you are finished there is a little shack across the parking lot with lots of CG36500 memorabilia which you can purchase. I got the latest edition of the book called, Rescue.

If you’re in Rock Harbor, it is a very cool thing to do …and very educational!

Cute Little Bunny On The Trail At Fort Hill In Eastham On Cape Cod

This cut, little baby bunny was just munching away along on the trail at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. I did not faze him at all. He would look at me and munch away. I was so close that I had to step back to get a good photograph.


After he finished eating, he lay down on the trail to take a nap while I clicked away.

So cute, don’t you think?
