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!
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?
It was a gorgeous view from Fort Hill overlooking Nauset Marsh and out toward Coast Guard Station in the distance. The Goldenrod was in full bloom and so pretty!
The Coast Guard Station at Coast Guard Beach is always a sight to behold. I’m sure many of the old rescue stories are still being told today!
The views of Nauset Marsh from Fort Hill, looking out toward Coast Guard Station are spectacular. You can see so much more now that they’ve pruned many of the the bushes along the Fort Hill Trail.
Love the blue sky and the blue waters. What do you think?
The walk from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach was spectacular the other day. I love the little trail along Nauset Marsh and across the small boardwalk. The blue, blue sky was so beautiful looking toward Coast Guard Station in the distance.
