Semi-Palmated Plovers On The Flats On Cape Cod


I was taking a walk out on the flats at low tide near Boat Meadow when I saw something out of the corner of my eye. There were two birds scurrying around the mud, looking for food.

I clicked away and realized when I got home that they were Semipalmated Plovers. They blend in pretty well on the mud flats and the water, don’t you think?

Gorgeous Day For A Bike Ride On Cape Cod!


Yesterday was a glorious day,  sunny and in the lower 70s… a perfect day for a bike ride! I took off to Boat Meadow Beach which is where I took this photograph. It was high tide and there were  people sitting on the beach and one little boy was swimming. The clouds were spectacular!

Then I biked over to Rock Harbor which is another beautiful place to visit any time of the year. Then on to the Cape Cod Rail Trail over the salt marshes and home. Who ever thought I could bike in shorts and a t-shirt at the end of October?  I wasn’t going to miss this gorgeous day!

Torrential Rains On Cape Cod Early Saturday Morning


We woke up to the rain pounding on our roof early Saturday morning here on Cape Cod. It was weird because we did not see any weather alerts before going to bed.  When Phil went down to check the basement about 12:30 AM, there was a lot of water coming in the hatchway and through the window wells.

I spent the next 3 hours bailing out the window wells outside in the pouring rain while running back inside to help Phil mop the basement floor. What a job! Not too much sleep that night!

When we finally did get up with a total of 4 1/2 hours of sleep, we learned that we had gotten 5″ of rain in just over 4 hours. Incredible!

I took this photograph of the beach at Boat Meadow where I always walk and where we like to relax. There were 2 huge gullies from the parking lot to the water and one had taken the bench down with it.

It is truly amazing what Mother Nature can do, especially with the power of water.



Dead Low Tide At Boat Meadow On Cape Cod


The tide was really low when I took a ride by Boat Meadow yesterday morning. You can walk out for it seems like miles on Cape Cod Bay when the tide is so low.

And, as you can see, the boats will not be getting off the sandbar for a few hours.

Pretty, don’t you think? The clouds were so  dramatic!
