Gorgeous Stone Walls At Fort Hill On Cape Cod!

The newly cleaned-up stone walls by the Cape Cod National Seashore’s “Woodchucks” volunteer crew at Fort Hill are just gorgeous! Look at how prominent they look in the photograph from the upper lot at Fort Hill looking out over Nauset Marsh toward Coast Guard Station. Just beautiful!

This View At Fort Hill On Cape Cod Never Gets Old.

When we lived in the mountains of Colorado, it was just gorgeous but we rarely saw any clouds in the sky. It was always sunny.

The first thing I remarked on when we moved to the Cape were the beautiful clouds. Every day is different and every sky is different.

I never get sick of this view of Nauset Marsh looking out toward Coast Guard Station from Fort Hill. I love the clouds along the horizon over the water.

Coast Guard Station In Eastham On Cape Cod Is Always So Beautiful!

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!

Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod: Two Perspectives

I was hiking on the trail at Fort Hill by the water’s edge yesterday morning when I noticed that it was really low tide. I had never seen it that low there. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Usually at low tide I can see the first 3 taller rocks jutting out from the shore but there were  so many more that you could see. And I don’t remember ever seeing such a large sandbar behind the rocks. Wow!

I couldn’t decide which photograph I liked better: the one with the water and sand in the foreground or the one with the beach grass. What do you think?
