The colors were so pretty this morning at Coast Guard Beach with the sun shining hazily in the sky. The sky almost looks like summer until you see the beach.
Such a pretty photograph of the bridge over Nauset Marsh looking toward Coast Guard Station. The clouds were beautiful! What do you think?
Have you ever walked over this bridge?
As the winter storms were gauging out the dunes by Coast Guard Station, the extra sand was being deposited down the beach toward Nauset Spit. I took this photograph at high tide where you can see the huge beach. Earlier this year you could not even walk down the beach at high tide as the water line was much, much higher.
Beautiful, don’t you think? I wonder what Mother Nature has in store for the rest of the winter months?
I kept looking at this sea bird in the water as we walked along Coast Guard Beach. It was pretty far out and looked like it was black, but every once in a while, I could see a bit of orange and white. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
As it swam closer to shore I could see that it was indeed a Surf Scoter. What a gorgeous bird! Look at those colors on its head and bill.
Have you ever seen a Surf Scoter? I really liked the many reflections in the water of its head in the 2nd photograph. What do you think?
The winds were cranking at Coast Guard Beach and the tide was so high there was no chance of taking a walk along the beach.
I loved this photograph driving back from Nauset Light Beach looking out at Coast Guard Beach. Just beautiful, don’t you think?
