First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod’s Welcoming Committee!

Whenever I ride my bike down to First Encounter Beach early in the morning, there is always a “Welcoming Committee” of Willetts ready to greet me. They are so many of them… on the First Encounter sign, on the fence, on the fence posts and on the top of the trees. They are all chatting away. There must be 15-20 of them all around.

The Willett is a  wonderful sign of summer and such a beautiful and social bird!

And so nice to see first thing in the morning!

The Huge Tides On Cape Cod Bay.

I was taking a walk along the beach the other day when the tide started coming in. I thought it would be interesting to take 3 different photographs, each about 15 minutes apart so that you can see just how fast the tide comes in on Cape Cod Bay.

In the first photo, you can see the water started to meander in to shore. In the 2nd photo, it has gotten a lot higher.

In the last photo, the water is way up on the shore. The tide swings on Cape Cod Bay are just amazing!

My Favorite Trail To The Beach On Cape Cod Bay!

I had not been over to my favorite little trail to the beach on the bay side in a long time. The weather has been fairly cold and windy most of the winter. And then we saw a few springlike days and it was glorious! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I took 2 photographs of the trail with the 2nd one of them a bit closer than the other. I couldn’t decide which one I liked better. What do you think?
