Last night’s sunset was just beautiful! I was heading out to the post office when I saw the colorful hues on the horizon and made a detour to Boat Meadow Beach. The sun was just setting on the horizon.
Maybe this is the beginning of those spectacular winter sunsets! So pretty, don’t you think?
The clouds were coming in from the east as we got to First Encounter Beach. It was low tide so there were lots of sandbars where the birds would rest.
I thought this was such a pretty photograph, what do you think?
The lighting was perfect on these Seagulls standing on the sandbar at Skaket Beach as the tide was coming in. It was a dark, cloudy, cold and windy day so when the sun shone on the sandbar and the Seagulls, it was so pretty.
What do you think?
Thanksgiving Day and Friday the temperatures were in the 20s with windy conditions here on Cape Cod. I took a ride to Rock Harbor In Orleans on Friday to take some photographs of the ice on the harbor and on Cape Cod Bay.
As I was taking some photographs of the harbor, 2 teenage boys came riding down on their bikes. They had just a hoodie on, so they were not dressed for the weather at all. They parked their bikes on the dock closest to the water. One of the boys went and sat down on the edge of the dock and took some photographs with his phone. So far…ok.
He then decided to stand up on the ice. I could not believe it. I was afraid if I yelled, he would get scared and fall in. There was a woman that they knew also on the dock and she said to him, ” Oh, you can stand up on the ice?” He said, “Yea,” and then proceeded to fall in. Thank goodness he was within arm’s reach of the dock and grabbed on and pull himself out. He went in just over his knees and his pants and shoes were soaked.
All I could think of was that if he were another foot away, he would have fallen in through the very thin ice and drowned. It was such a scary thing to witness.
The moral of my story is… don’t EVER take ice for granted! Stay off of it, especially in salt water.
I love it when Cape Cod Bay gets big waves. It is so unusual and so exciting! You know the wind is blowing!
I loved the waves and the clouds in the sky. What do you think?
If you take a walk around the harbor in Wellfleet, you can see this old anchor right by the launch ramp. I wonder how old it is. It looks ancient!
Have you ever seen this anchor? Very cool, don’t you think? And then your imagination takes over… What kind of boat was it on? How long ago?
