There are a lot more rocks at Boat Meadow Beach since the ferocious storms last winter. Someone got creative and made some cairns from the rocks. It was really pretty along the edge of the shore. (A cairn is a pile of rocks or stones, usually used to mark the trails for hikers.) So it was pretty innovative to see them on the beach.
Cool, don’t you think?
It was so much fun to see these kayakers out on Boat Meadow Creek enjoying the beautiful day. I’m not sure what the temperature of the bay is, but I know it is a lot warmer than the ocean. There were people swimming there a few days ago.
Summer is almost here!
It was a beautiful day for a bike ride along the shore on Cape Cod. I had just picked up by bike from its “spring tune-up” and it was ready to go… as was I!
This is one of my favorite stops at Boat Meadow along my favorite route. It doesn’t get much prettier!
What do you think?
High tide on Cape Cod Bay has been really high since the storms last winter. Last summer there was plenty of sand to set your beach chair down on at high tide. There is not much sand at high tide now and none as you walk around the corner there.
It will be interesting to see what Mother Nature has in store before summer…
The flats at low tide tide on Cape Cod Bay are different every time you see them. I loved this photograph of the flats between Rock Harbor and Boat Meadow. It’s so amazing how far the tide goes out at low tide and then how far it comes in at high tide.
So pretty, don’t you think?
There were quite a few bricks on Boat Meadow Beach when I went for a walk there the other day. I wondered how they got on the beach. Had they been buried under the sand and been uncovered from the series of storms that we’ve had over the winter?
The interesting part was that there two squares of bricks and they looked like they were stuck together with cement.
It would be fun to write a story on where they came from… a home that used to be there? I thought of Billingsgate Island on Cape Cod Bay that used to have many houses and a lighthouse on it, only to be covered with water years ago. You can only see it at low tide now.
