The waves were perfect for surfing at Nauset Light Beach in Eastham and the surfers were out trying to catch that “perfect wave.”
It was great fun watching them all, especially on a cold, windy day in the middle of winter. Dedication!
We have had so much fun with the AllTrails app which is so easy to use. We made a loop called Water Views & Forest Loop where you hike along the ponds at Nickerson State Park and then back through the pine forest. It is so beautiful. The map of the hike is at the end of the blog.
You start out hiking along the banks of Cliff Pond and Little Cliff Pond and then head back through the pine forests. It doesn’t get much prettier. You can add photos to the hike too. If you take them with your phone and download them to the app, they will pop up along the trail on the map where you took the photograph. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
I loved this photograph of this lone surfer walking to the water with his surfboard. You can see the huge dunes that have been eaten away by the ocean over the years and the blue, blue sky in the background.
I thought it was pretty cool. What do you think?
Wishing you a Happy New Year from Cape Cod and a year filled with fun and adventure!
If you want to see a really cool train exhibit made of Gingerbread Houses and replicating The Chatham Bars Inn, check out the front lobby at The Chatham Bars Inn. It is really amazing!
Each unique building is made of gingerbread. I was most impressed when I saw that the roofs were made of Necco wafers as I knew they were taken off the market recently due to decreased popularity. We used to love them growing up, especially the pink ones!
Pretty cool, don’t you think? You can even push the button and watch the train go around!
I had so much fun making this Advent Calendar a few years ago when I found out that my daughter was expecting her 3rd daughter. I could make all little girls ornaments! What a treat!
The girls love taking turns putting a new ornament on the tree each day in December. This morning they put the last ornament on the tree. Tonight is the big night!
Wishing you all a magical Christmas Eve!
It is so much fun when my son from California comes to visit for the holidays! It’s time to frequent our favorite restaurants and go beach-hopping! I think we walked on 6 beaches on this day from high tide at Nauset Beach, Coast Guard Beach and Nauset Light Beach to the low tide flats at Rock Harbor and Cape Cod Bay beaches. He’s always impressed when Coast Guard Beach is voted in the Top 10 Beaches in the USA.
This is a life-size Gingerbread House at the Chatham Bars Inn. It is so cool! Their Christmas decorations are just beautiful!
