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!
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?
I was impressed that these three were out on the water at Coast Guard Beach surfing and paddle surfing. It was a cold day but they looked like they were having fun!
With all of the windy storms that we’ve had in the past few months, there are a lot of trees and branches strewn about at Fort Hill and everywhere. Someone decided to make some of the trees and branches and and vines into “tree art.” How clever!
It looks pretty cool, don’t you think? And then we started wondering… I hope the vines that they used to tie them together are not Poison Ivy vines!
This swamp is the reason that there are boardwalks on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill. As you can see, there is plenty of swamp!
Such a fun hike for the whole family!
Liam’s at Nauset Beach, a popular summer clam shack known for its “world famous onion rings” will be demolished this week after the Nor’easter last weekend. The storm decimated the dune in front of Liam’s and now Liam’s on the verge of falling into the ocean.
Liam’s at Nauset Beach has been a popular summer restaurant for 63 years, originally known as Philbrick’s Snack Shack. Jon Ohman took it over in 1990 and renamed it Liam’s.
Back in 1954, more than 250 feet of sand and beach grass separated the shack from the ocean. Erosion usually takes about 12 feet per year but two powerful storms in the past two months have swallowed up more than 60 feet of the protective buffer.
There have been so many people stopping by Liam’s and Nauset Beach, almost as if it were “calling hours” to say their last goodbyes. So sad. The storm last weekend has taken 2 icons in the area…. the majestic tree at Fort Hill and now Liam’s at Nauset Beach.
As Jon said to us yesterday, “It is truly a day that we can be in awe of nature.”
