Rock Harbor In Orleans On Cape Cod Is Very Busy This Summer

There were a lot of boats, big and small, going in and out of Rock Harbor the other day. It was a nonstop parade of boats.

At Rock Harbor you have to go in or out with your boat about 2 hours before or 2 hours after high tide or you will get stuck at low tide. The tides on Cape Cod Bay have a huge swing.


Rock Harbor has very unique channel buoys. They look like trees planted in the bay. Very cool.

Have you ever been to Rock Harbor?

Beautiful Snowy Egrets On Pond By Cape Cod Bay

There were 2 Snowy Egrets in the little pond near Boat Meadow on Cape Cod Bay. They were meandering about, looking for food.

I hadn’t seen a Snowy Egret in years and I was so surprised to see his bright yellow feet. I had forgotten how spectacular his feet were!


Snowy Egrets are tall birds of about 24″ and belong to the Heron family. They are all white with long black legs and yellow feet. They have a slender black bill with lores that are yellow.

Have you ever seen a Snowy Egret? Such a beautiful bird!

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!
