Every time I walk by this dead piece of wood, it reminds me of an angry bird getting ready to take flight. So, I finally decided to take a photograph of it and post it. (Look at the full photo to really see it!)
I asked Phil for his opinion and he thought I was “really stretching it!” Ha!! But, can’t you see the bill with the little knob on it and his head with the protruding eyes…?
It seems like every hike that we take at Nickerson State Park is a 10! They are all so diverse and there is so much to see. (Click on blog link to see water tower.)
After the torrential rains on Saturday we got up early on Sunday and took a trail near the old water tower. It’s a great hike, but not for the feint of heart! And there are so many different intersecting trails that you can make up your own different itinerary each time you go!
You can always find a bench to sit on at most of the beaches on Cape Cod. I love it the most early in the morning or later in the day when you have the beach to yourself… with just the birds and sound of the water.
It’s amazing what you can find if you just drive around a bit and stop at some of the “hot spots” looking for birds. We saw this Belted Kingfisher flying back and forth from pole to pole looking for that perfect fish in the water.
It was a bit far away, but I really liked the composition of the photograph. What do you think?
The tides were pretty high at Nauset Light Beach as you can see all of the driftwood that has washed ashore. And when the tides get that high, especially in the winter months, you can’t even walk on the beach. The water goes right up to the dunes!
The moorings have all been pulled at Meeting House Pond and sit patiently for spring and the warmer weather to come. I’m sure all of the boat owners who use these moorings are waiting for the same thing!
I thought it was kind of a cool photograph… what do you think?
