Bayview Trail at the Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary has several benches that beckon you as you hike by. The views are spectacular which ever way you look. A perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy nature on the trail.
I especially liked this bench on the trail which looks out over the salt marsh to Wellfleet Bay. So pretty, don’t you think?
Across the harbor from where the boats launch is this really pretty rock jetty that you can walk out on. It is just beautiful. And… on the other side of the jetty is a beautiful beach on Wellfleet Bay.
So pretty, don’t you think?
This was one of the prettiest trails to the beach that I’ve seen in awhile. It’s always fun to discover a new trail, especially one as pretty as this.
What do you think?
The flats at First Encounter Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod Bay are just amazing. They go out for miles. I loved the clouds in this photograph. Doesn’t it look like a huge white jet flying above?
The weather is hopefully getting warmer and we’ll be able to start packing a picnic and enjoy the gorgeous Cape Cod views! This is one of our favorite places for a picnic… or to read a book… or just to sit and relax and enjoy the spectacular, ever changing views! (Click for another photo!)
The first photograph is of the benches facing the water while the second photograph is looking from the beach back to the benches.
It doesn’t get much better!
I love to see the Buffleheads swimming about in the winter here on Cape Cod. They are so distinct with their black and white coloring. I’ve seen many of them at Boat Meadow Creek and at Rock Harbor. They are pretty skittish if they see you or hear you, so it is easier to take a photograph at Rock Harbor where they are further away and there’s some noise about.
This male was flapping his wings as the 2 females swam nearby. There is such a difference between the males and females.
Have you ever seen a Bufflehead? Cool-looking, don’t you think?
