It was a beautiful evening for a walk to the beach. It was high tide so there were no sand bars…. just a sailboat in the bay and the sun setting in the evening sky.
These fishing boats were all packed up and on their way out to sea by the time I biked over to Rock Harbor. What a beautiful morning! I hope they caught a lot of fish!
We’ve had a lot of good biking days here on Cape Cod. Love this spot on Cape Cod Bay for a little break… sit on the bench and enjoy the scenery!
It doesn’t get much better!
There are so many trails to the different beaches here on Cape Cod! I love this one out to Cape Cod Bay with the rock from Rock Harbor in the distance.
So pretty, don’t you think?
We’ve had some beautiful days here on Cape Cod the past couple of weeks, so we got our binoculars and headed to Boat Meadow Beach to see if there were any shore birds around. From the car we couldn’t see much so we thought it would be fun to walk over to Rock Harbor via the flats. Were we in for a treat!
There were shore birds everywhere on the flats searching for food. We got our cameras out and clicked away, hoping for that special photo op. It wasn’t until we got home and looked on the computer that we saw some birds that we had never seen before. In this frame you can see a White-rumped Sandpiper, a Semipalmated Plover and a Western Sandpiper. We had never seen the White-rumped Sandpiper or the Western Sandpiper before.
How cool is that?
We saw our first Great Yellowlegs on the flats at Boat Meadow Beach the other day. Summer must be somewhere around the corner. It’s such a treat to see the shorebirds migrating back up north.
As you can see the Greater Yellowlegs is known for its distinctively long, bright yellow legs and yellow feet. Have you ever seen a Greater Yellowlegs?
