We’ve had so much fun with the AllTrails App. At first we followed many of the trails in our area and then we decided to try and make some of our own. (Click on blog for full photo.)
On the AllTrails App you can record a hike, name it, describe it, add photos and rate it. It has really been a lot of fun and very exciting! This hike we recorded at Nickerson State Park and named it Two Pond Roundabout. You can see at the bottom the distance, elevation gain and time.
This photograph was one of the little ponds we saw on our adventure. Such pretty reflections.
It was another cold and windy day so we headed inland over to Nickerson State Park. We had never hiked the Flax Pond Loop Trail so we thought we’d give it a “go.” (Click on blog link to see other photos.)
What a beautiful hike! Most of the trail is within a few feet of the pond which makes it so pretty and great for taking photographs. We started out on the shady side which was a bit brisk to start but ended on the sunny side which was much warmer.
It was a sunny day so you can see all the beautiful reflections in the pond as you hike around. There are also a lot of beaches for swimming, picnic tables for picnicking and benches for sitting. We thought about how much fun families and especially the kids would have during the summer months.
Just beautiful, don’t you think? Have you ever been to Nickerson State Park in the summer?
This beautiful old Eastham fire engine is again displayed outside the firehouse with its festive holiday lights. It looks so pretty as you drive down Route 6.
Have you seen a lot of holiday lights this year?
It was a gorgeous Sunday to be out in the waters looking for oysters at Nauset Salt Pond in Eastham on Cape Cod. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Yesterday, called “Oyster Sunday,” was the first of 3 Sundays in the fall that people can get a “Oyster” license and search for oysters in designated areas at Nauset Salt Pond and the river leading into it.
Looks like fun! This guy was walking back with his bucket full.
Have you ever participated in Oyster Sundays at the Eastham Salt Pond by the visitors center?
Yesterday was a glorious day on Cape Cod! It was sunny and warm and the waves were cranking. Summer is still with us!
There were a few surfers trying to catch a wave at Coast Guard Beach but this paddle surfer caught one when I was there.
Enjoy this gorgeous weather… for a while longer!
This Sunfish is ready and waiting for the tide to come in a bit so it can go for a sail at Wellfleet Harbor. I loved the vibrant colors of the sail against the deep blue water and the interesting cloud formations in the sky.
