This summer has been the summer for kayaking on Nauset Marsh and other areas on Cape Cod. There are kayakers going out at all times of the day.
I took this photograph from Hemenway Landing, which is a popular launch for kayakers. There were quite a few in that group enjoying their paddle as well as the hot summer weather!
We watched this fisherman launch his kayak at Cliff Pond the other day. I thought, perhaps, it might be an interesting photograph. (Click on blog link for full photo.)
I waited until he was a ways from shore and took some photographs. I loved this one with the beautiful puffy clouds in the background.
What do you think?
Rock Harbor has two launch areas where you can put your boats in, one on the Orleans side and one on the Eastham side. This photograph is looking across the harbor from Orleans to the Harbor Master’s house and launch ramp in Eastham. Pretty soon the place will be busy!
So pretty, don’t you think?
It was a perfect fall day to go kayaking at Nauset Marsh, part of the National Seashore. I loved the coloring with the sun on the tandem kayak and the deep blue water of the saltmarsh. You can see Nauset Spit in the background.
Pretty, don’t you think?
It was another picture-perfect day for kayaking the Nauset Marsh out to Nauset Spit. We launched from Goose Hummock, so it was a nice long paddle. And yes, we did see a few seals along the way.
We remembered our folding seats that fit in the hatch, so that was a big treat at lunchtime. Just sit down, relax and enjoy those last days of summer.
It doesn’t get much prettier!
Yesterday was the perfect day to kayak Nauset Marsh…or any place… on Cape Cod. The weather was perfect… sunny and warm and hardly a ripple on the water.
We launched from Hemenway Landing on Nauset Marsh and were able to paddle out to Nauset Spit the “back way” by Coast Guard Station because it was high tide. At low tide, you cannot get through with all of the sandbars. The water is way too low, even for a kayak.
It was beautiful and we saw lots of different shore birds from Egrets and Great Blue Herons and Cormorants and Sanderlings and Yellowlegs and more. As we neared Nauset Spit we could see some heads bobbing in the water and then a quick splash and a dive under. Yes, the seals were swimming in Nauset Marsh near Nauset Spit. Hopefully the Great Whites won’t follow them in…
An awesome time to get lost in the beauty of Nauset Marsh and everything it has to offer!
