I love windy days at the beach here on Cape Cod, especially on Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore. You can see the spume blowing from the waves in the wind, and the lone log washed up on  the shore.

So pretty, don’t you thinK?

I had so much fun trying to make this Valentine in the sand, as the waves rolled in and out and I ran back and forth, dodging them! Ha!

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine’s Day from Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod, voted one of the Top Ten Beaches in the USA by National Geographic!

 

The Trees At Fort Hill On Cape Cod Got Hammered!

The trees at Fort Hill, on the Cape Cod National Seashore, got hammered in the storm last week. Phil and I were taking a hike on Red Maple Swamp Trail on Saturday and we couldn’t believe how many downed trees we saw. It was mind-boggling to see that many trees down in such a short space. It must have been some sort of microburst.

Unbelievable!

This was one of the prettiest days I have hiked the Salt Pond Trail in Eastham. The colors were just gorgeous! It looks like a pastoral painting, don’t you think? This is the little river that leads from Salt Pond out to Nauset Marsh.

And then I edited it another way. What do you think?

 

The Bog House On The Pamet Trail In Truro On Cape Cod

The Pamet Trail System in Truro has some really great hikes. One is to the Bog House which is very interesting and full of history.  The Bog House, located among former cranberry bogs in the Pamet Valley, was originally constructed around 1830. It supported cranberry harvesting that occurred there until the 1960s.

“The Pamet Cranberry Bog consists of three small freshwater bogs, a modified two-story “bog house,” sand pits, and a system of drains, culverts, and other hydrological features that all together were used to produce cranberries for commercial use during the late 19th to mid-20th century.”

The Bog House itself is quite unique with its main door on the 2nd floor. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
