One of the prettiest views of Nauset Marsh and Coast Guard Beach is from the overlook by the Coast Guard Beach parking lot. There are benches and a picnic table if the weather is nice.
In this photo, you can see Nauset Marsh off to the right and Coast Guard Beach to the left. Down the middle is Nauset Spit where the Atlantic Ocean empties into Nauset Marsh. The boats that are moored there look like little dots in the water.
Such a pretty overlook. Have you ever been there?
Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore, is always spectacular! I love it this time of year when you have the beach to yourself and there is no one else around.
Very medicinal… Love it!
We were heading back from the gym early this particular morning when we could see the morning sky starting to turn some pretty colors. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)
We took a left and took a detour down to Coast Guard Beach where I ran out of the car and down to the overlook. The sunrise was just spectacular!
These 2 photographs were taken about 2 minutes apart. You can see how quickly the colors changed. So pretty, don’t you think?
We could hear the Least Terns squawking way out on the sand bar as we walked down Coast Guard Beach. There were hundreds of them out there. And then something scared them.
I loved this photograph as they started to fly away. What do you think?
One of our favorite walks is from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach. Each time you go, it is so different. You can see that fall is here with the marsh grasses turning a yellowy brown.
So pretty, don’t you think? Have you ever walked over this bridge?
I love the little Sanderlings as they scurry about looking for food on Coast Guard Beach. These three were dodging the waves to find something to eat. Sanderlings are here on the Cape all year round, so you can frequently see them on the beaches or flying above.
Have you ever seen a Sanderling? Beautiful little shore bird…
