It was a windy day on Coast Guard Beach and a gorgeous day for photographs. I love seeing the breaking waves with the spume blowing in the wind.
Just beautiful, don’t you think?
Whether it’s summer or winter, cloudy or sunny, Coast Guard Station is always beautiful. Here’s a few facts, if you didn’t know…
“One of the original nine stations was constructed at Nauset. It was located about 350 yards southeast of the present building. Shoreline erosion compelled the construction of a new station. The old station remained in service until 1937, when it was replaced by the present structure. The present building was in service as a Coast Guard Station until 1958.
The building is now the Cape Cod National Seashore’s residential environmental education program facility. Known as NEED, it offers educational groups an opportunity to experience the natural and historical wonders of Cape Cod. The building is not open to the general public, but visitors are able to walk around the grounds and enjoy the ocean views.”
There is so much history on Cape Cod!
It’s hard to believe that this was the path to Coast Guard Beach just two years ago. The drop-off now is just incredible which is why the National Seashore made a new path to the beach down the road a bit.
Pretty dramatic, don’t you think?
We were surprised to see the huge tidal pools on Coast Guard Beach the other day. We hadn’t taken a walk down the beach in a couple of weeks and it had changed so much. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
There were a couple of these pools along the beach, this being the largest and over a foot deep. It must be getting fed when the tide comes in.
Have you seen these tidal pool along Coast Guard Beach? I’ve never seen them there before, have you?
