I can’t wait until it gets a bit warmer and we can head up to Provincetown for a picnic on Beech Forest Trail, part of the National Seashore just outside of the center of Provincetown. It is such a pretty trail over a boardwalk where you can see many different species of birds, through the forest and around Blackwater Pond. It’s a “must” if you’re in the Provincetown area!
And there, at the end of the trail is the perfect picnic table to relax and enjoy nature.
It only lasted a minute when there wasn’t a ripple in the water and you could see the reflections of these three boats all lined up on Nauset Marsh. And then the wind kicked up… I couldn’t decide if I like black and white or color better.
What do you think?
I couldn’t decide which of these two photographs I liked better. It was a gorgeous day at Coast Guard Beach and someone had put a lobster pot by the entrance making a nice photo op. I took 2 photographs from a few feet away from each other.
Which one do you like better?
I love the clouds at the beach right before a big storm. These clouds were exceptional with the huge dunes in the background.
What do you think?
This photograph at Lecount Hollow Beach in Wellfleet looks so inviting… for a nice long walk on the beach or a picnic on top of the dunes which are about 40′ high.
So pretty, don’t you think?
One of tour favorite hikes is the one by the Visitors Center in Eastham called the Nauset Marsh Trail. We’ve always called it the Salt Pond Trail. It is such a pretty hike. (Click for more photos or a map at the end.)
The Nauset marsh Trail has so much diversity from hiking around the Salt Pond, over a bridge over the salt marsh where you can see many water birds feeding and through the woods to a gorgeous overlook of Nauset Marsh all the way out to Nauset Beach. From there you can hike back to the Visitors Center or continue out to Doane Rock and Coast Guard Beach.
It really is an awesome hike, any time of the day and any time of the year.
