Fort Hill is one of our favorite places to take a hike. You can hike short, long, sunny, shady… just about anything on the trail. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Here are a couple of photographs of a sunny and shady trail. Both are just spectacular! Have you ever hiked at Fort Hill? #eastham
We haven’t seen many butterflies this summer so it was a huge treat to see this Tiger Swallowtail flitting about the yard. It was just gorgeous! (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Have you seen many butterflies this summer?
I love to walk the streets in Provincetown before the crowds emerge. You can see it ready to come alive! And then when the place is hopping and full of so many people… what fun!
I’ve been looking for the Northern Bobwhite at Fort Hill all summer. I’ve heard his call of “Bob-white, bob-white,” but I haven’t been able to find him.
And then we drove up the road one morning last week and there he was… walking down the road. I was able to get a couple of photographs before he ran into the high grass.
Have you seen the Bobwhite at Fort Hill this summer? #eastham #forthill
The unique Water-Willow is an 3-9 foot aquatic shrub with 1/2 to 1 inch magenta flowers that blooms in July and August. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I’ve seen them growing in the shallow waters on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill, the Silver Spring Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellfleet or at Wiley Park by the bridge. It is really cool to see how they grow in clusters along the main stem.
Have you seen any Water-Willows this summer? #eastham #wellfleet
This was such a pretty view looking out toward Little Pleasant Bay on Cape Cod. I love the scattered clouds… #orleans
