Morris Island in Chatham is always a great place to take a walk, unless it is high tide. There are always so many birds to see and other wildlife. The trails through the woods and by the harbor also offer beautiful views.
However, if it is high tide, you can’t even make it down the beach! You can see the water all the way up to the rocks as you look out toward Monomoy Island. Have you ever hiked Morris Island?
One of the overlooks at Morris Island in Chatham looks out over the water toward Monomoy Island. It brings back so many memories of our kayaking out there 15-20 years ago when the seals would follow our kayaks around. Not any more. There is much too much risk of seeing one of the Great Whites out there, which we have no desire to see.
Oh, we did have fun riding those waves in as the tides changed. Great memories…
Phil and I had stopped to look at the boats at Stage Harbor in Chatham when we saw this Common Loon shoveling through the water. I quickly got my camera. It had this crab in its bill. Amazing, don’t you think? (Click on blog link to see other photos.)
The kayaks and dinghys are still on the beach and ready to go in Chatham. We’ve had some gorgeous weather the past couple of weeks, so I’m sure everyone is trying to get as much out of summer as they can.
Th clouds are so pretty, don’ t you think?
