Osprey Diving For Lunch At Wiley Park In Eastham On Cape Cod

 

It was a gorgeous day so Phil and I took a walk at Wiley Park in Eastham on Cape Cod. It felt like a warm spring day. We sat on the bench by the lake and watched the kayakers paddle by.

All of a sudden we saw an Osprey hovering above the water. I quickly got my camera out and clicked away.

He certainly got himself a nice big fish for lunch! And then flew away to the perfect spot to enjoy his meal.

Huge Waves On The National Seashore At Nauset Beach

I was sitting on our deck the other day and could hear the waves crashing on the shore. Nauset Beach is about a mile and a half away from our rental home in Orleans. I couldn’t believe how loud they sounded.

So, I took a  ride down to Nauset Beach and took some photographs. The waves were huge!

Waiting For Summer At First Encounter Beach In Eastham On Cape Cod

This bench at First Encounter Beach on Cape Cod will not be empty for long as people start coming to enjoy a day at the gorgeous beaches of Cape Cod.

First Encounter Beach was named that because it was the place of the first encounter of the Pilgrims from the Mayflower with the native Nauset tribe in 1620.

Red-Tailed Hawk In The Tree At Our New Home On Cape Cod

We have seen a Red-tailed Hawk flying above our new home on Cape Cod and we thought it had a home nearby. Our landscaper took a great photograph of the hawk up in a tree near our front porch eating a snake. He said it was pretty awesome.

Yesterday we were working about on the house when we saw him in the same tree. I got lots of photographs with him sitting there looking for his next meal and him preening himself. It was pretty cool.

There are so many birds at our new home. We can’t wait to move in!
