Colorful Ruddy Turnstone At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod

I’ve wanted to see a Ruddy Turnstone for years, but have not seen one in about 15 years. We hiked out to the beach at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary last week there were dozens of them scurrying about on the sand flats. What a treat!

I just love their coloring! Gorgeous bird, don’t you think?

Rock Harbor In Orleans On Cape Cod

The channel was not busy yet with boats for the summer season. This lone boat was making its way back to shore at high tide. Boats going in or out of Rock Harbor must proceed within 2 hours of high tide or they risk getting stuck until the tide comes in again.

I thought it was such a pretty¬†photograph with the dark blue sky and white clouds… what do you think?

First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod Was Spectacular!

The clouds in the sky at First Encounter Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod were just spectacular! It doesn’t get much prettier!

First Encounter Beach was so named because it where the “first encounter” occurred between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims. There is ¬†a marker where you can read all about it right at the top of the beach.

Very cool!
