You can hear the call of the Willets all over Cape Cod this time of the year. It’s as if they’re saying, “We’re back!” (Click on blog link for other photo.)
The Willets love to stand on fence railings, posts, signs and anything they can find to stand on. This guy was walking down the fence at Fort Hill. You can see how different their coloring is when they open up their wings.
This was such a gorgeous morning at Hemenway Landing. Look at that sky… just spectacular!
It’s mating season for the Horseshoe Crabs at Hemenway Landing. You could see a lot of them along the edge of the water. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
“The crabs live in the ocean year-round but come ashore like clockwork every year between the May and June full moons to mate and lay eggs.” The ones that I saw looked pretty old with lots of seaweed and barnacles growing on their shells.
This Seagull was enjoying his little respite on the empty mooring at Hemenway Landing. Pretty soon the fisherman would be back to claim his mooring and the Seagull would have to give up his perfect spot.
We headed out on Coast Guard Beach toward Nauset Light Beach and were surprised to see so many rocks along the way. We hadn’t walked that way in a long while. I wonder how far the rocks go…
