Winter Kite Surfing On Cape Cod Bay

It was a windy day and there were plenty of kite surfers out enjoying the perfect windy conditions. This kite surfer was in the salt marsh that was flooded at high tide. He was really enjoying himself.

Love how he caught the wind and was airborne. Cool, don’t you think?

It seems like the clouds in so many of my recent posts have been unbelievable… just spectacular! Wonder if it’s the winter clouds?

Rare, Thick-Billed Murre At Boat Meadow Beach On Cape Cod

Phil and I were enjoying a glorious day at Boat Meadow after the snowstorm last week when I saw this duck out of the corner of my eye. It was swimming close to shore and didn’t look very familiar. I had my camera so I clicked away.

I checked my Sibley when I got home but all I came up with was a Thick -Billed Murre which is rare around here, especially on the bayside.

I waited until our friend, who is an astute birder,  returned from his vacation and showed him my photograph. Yes, it was a Thick-Billed Murre and he was most jealous! He has never seen one .

How cool is that?!

A Snowy First Encounter Beach Parking Lot On Cape Cod In Black And White

This was such a cool photograph of First Encounter Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod after the snow storm. I loved the tire tracks and just the desolateness of it all.

I liked it in black and white. What do you think?
