There is no beach at high tide on Coast Guard Beach this summer so far, so the lifeguards have their stand on one of the smaller dunes.
I took this photo from the walkway above. It looks pretty cool with the huge waves in the background, don’t you think?
The handicapped mat at Coast Guard Beach is installed and ready for summer. It is made of a heavy woven material so that big-tired wheelchairs can access the beach.
However, with all of the erosion to the beach over the winter, the slope down to the beach is pretty steep. At high tide, there is almost no beach at the end of the trail. The tide comes in very high, almost to the dunes.
I love the Wild Virginia Roses growing all around the beach fences here on Cape Cod. They make it so summery and so pretty. (Click on blog link for full photo.)
I took this photograph looking north at Nauset Light Beach overlook. Just beautiful, don’t you think?
Nauset Light Beach is always spectacular, especially from the overlook by the parking lot. Such a pretty beach, don’t you think?
The little Piping Plover chicks were scurrying all over the beach yesterday, and boy were they fast! And so cute! (Click on blog link for other photos.)
Mom was nearby making sure that no one got too close to her little ones. They are just adorable, don’t you think? Look at those long legs!
We always love the hikes in Nickerson State Park. Cliff Pond is one of our favorite ones. Such pretty views, don’t you think? Love the clouds!
