The 2013 Breach Of Ballston Beach In North Truro On Cape Cod

pamettrailbreakthrough

One of the trails in the Pamet Trail Area  in North Truro on Cape Cod goes to a stunning overlook where, during a winter storm in 2013,  the Atlantic Ocean breached the huge sand dunes on Ballston Beach and sent surging waves up the Pamet River all the way to Route 6. It is unbelievable how the coastline changed during that winter storm.

You can see in this photograph how powerful the breach was that winter day as it broke through the dunes.

Pamet Trail is great hike and worth the effort to see these spectacular views. A hike for the whole family!

 

 

 

 

Huge Purple Parry’s Harebell Wildflower In Orleans On Cape Cod

Parry's-Hairbellblog

I took a double-take when I saw this Parry’s Harebell wildflower on the side of the road in Orleans on Cape Cod. It was huge!

There are also Parry’s Harebell wildflowers out in Colorado but they are only about a 3/4  inch flower. This flower was about 4″ in diameter and about 3 feel tall and so pretty.

Have you ever seen a Parry’s Harebell?

This was such a pretty sunset on Nauset Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod a couple of weeks ago.

I loved how the flowers and the sky were almost a matching golden color.

What do you think? I liked it so much I used it as my screen saver!

Interesting Clematis Flower Gone By On Cape Cod

Climatis1blog

It’s been fun looking for new and different kinds of photographs here on Cape Cod.

Outside the front door of the home that we are renting until our home is built is a Clematis that has gone by. It was quite large and climbing up the light post.

I never got to see it in bloom. But, I loved these two photographs of the Clematis as it starts to seed and then when it is ready to disperse its seeds.

So delicate…

And 2 weeks after I took those 2 photographs, a new flower bloomed. Exquisite colors, don’t you think? It’s still summer!
