There is such a distinct feeling from Labor Day to the day after Labor Day here on Cape Cod. It’s quiet. I went for an early morning bike ride and there was no one else on the road. The week before there were plenty of visitors out biking with me!
The little shack that checks Beach Passes at First Encounter Beach was empty. I love this photograph with the pretty sky and clouds and the sand blown road with no one in the parking lot.
What do you think?
As I was biking at First Encounter Beach the other morning, this particular dune looked so pretty with the light clouds in the background. I got my iPhone out and clicked… and then got a good laugh! The only thing I could see was my loooong shadow going right up the dune.
It was a “picture perfect-10” day at Nauset Light Beach. The skies were sunny with a few clouds, the temps were warm but not hot and the winds were breezy and beautiful. It was a perfect day to go for a walk on the beach.
It doesn’t get much prettier… and not a soul around!
When you think of Provincetown, you think of things that are fun and sometimes funky. We were taking a hike on Beech Forest Trail when we saw this little gnome sitting in the tree. How perfect for Provincetown! Just fun! (Click on blog link for other photo.)
And whoever put it there had a great imagination and picked the perfect tree. Have you seen this little gnome on the trail? Did it bring a smile to your face?
There is a new “Flag of Honor” flying over the bench and memorial statue at Hemenway Landing honoring a man from Eastham who died on 9/11.
“The ‘Flag Of Honor’ has been created with the sincerest intentions of honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. This flag includes the names of everyone who perished on 9/11: on all of the planes, at Shanksville, PA, the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.”
May you find peace and love and a few minutes today to honor all those who died on 9/11 and their families.
We were so surprised to see 2 seals swimming about in Arey’s Pond. We thought it must be a fluke, but we’ve seen them there several times now. That’s a long swim from the ocean through Pleasant Bay and Little Pleasant Bay and down the river to Arey’s Pond.
The fishing must be pretty good!
