Swimming At Boat Meadow In Eastham on Cape Cod Yesterday!

It was a glorious day here on Cape Cod! The temps were about 74 degrees with lots of fun and a little breeze. Phil suggested that we go to the beach for a picnic. I never say no to a picnic! Fun!

Then he started putting his bathing suit on and I couldn’t figure out why, so I put mine on too. Guess we could get a little sun. We had not been to the beach in the summer months in 10 years!

Well, it was more than gorgeous so we sauntered down to the water’s edge. The water was warm! I couldn’t believe it. So in we went. I swam around for some time. It felt like July. Unbelievable.

So, I just had to post this photograph of me swimming at Boat Meadow yesterday. What a treat! I don’t think I have ever been swimming in May!

Orange And Black Baltimore Oriole Making A Nest In Our Yard On Cape Cod

  1. We have many gorgeous orange, black and white Baltimore Orioles hanging about in our yard. We have discovered 2 nests in the nearby trees.

Baltimore Orioles build their nests using materials they can weave as their nests hang down from a branch. We were in the Birdwatcher’s General Store in Orleans the other day when Mike, the owner, gave us a little “horse hair.” He said, “Throw it about your yard and watch the Baltimore Orioles pick it up for their nests. And…we did and…they did! Amazing!

This little guy was flitting about on the ground. I liked how he landed on the rock in the garden. Beautiful bird, don’t you think?
