It was a glorious day… sunny with little wind and a perfect day to take our kayaks out on the water. We launched at Good Hummock in Orleans and paddled Town Cove to Nauset Marsh and then out along the outer beach to Nauset Spit. It couldn’t get any prettier!
We stopped for a bit to rest and had some lunch. There were a lot of boats in the water and many kayakers enjoying the day. We took a different route back and paddled in through Nauset Marsh, going by Fort Hill and Hemenway Landing. So beautiful…
It was definitely a “pinch me” day! 🙂
It was so much fun to see these kayakers out on Boat Meadow Creek enjoying the beautiful day. I’m not sure what the temperature of the bay is, but I know it is a lot warmer than the ocean. There were people swimming there a few days ago.
Summer is almost here!
I saw my first seal of the season at Coast Guard Beach the other day. There were quite a few of them in the water, so the water must be warming up a bit. The latest I heard was that the water was 54 degrees. Brrrr…
Cute little guy, don’t you think?
I love the paths that lead you to Cape Cod Bay. You walk through tall grasses on a sandy trail with Wild Roses starting to bloom and you can see the miles of flats of Cape Cod Bay in the distance.
It doesn’t get much prettier that this!
The Least Terns were quite noisy as we walked by their roped off area on Coast Guard Beach. The nesting area is off limits to people and pets as the Least Terns and the Piping Plovers lay their eggs and raise their young.
This Least Tern looked so regal as he posed for his photograph!
It was a perfect day at Rock Harbor with the sun shining and the blue skies. You can even see the reflection of the boats in the harbor.
I stopped to take a few photographs on my bike ride home.
Pretty, don’t you think?
