No Kite Surfing Today At First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod.


It was a gorgeous, windy day so we thought we’d go back to First Encounter Beach and watch the kite surfers while we ate our picnic lunch in the car.  Wrong!

How funny! We had forgotten that the tide had changed just enough in those few days that it was dead low at lunchtime. So we sat and watched the people walking out on the flats… and then we took a walk too.

If you enlarge this photo, you can see the little specks of people walking way, way out there on the flats. Pretty cool!

Awesome Kite Surfing At First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod!


Yesterday was the first sunny day in a while so we packed a picnic lunch to have in the car and decided to drive  to First Encounter Beach as we thought it might be really pretty there. Were we in for a treat! (Click on blog link for more photos.)

As we drove in, we could see the colorful kites way up in the sky. It was really windy and the kite surfers were all out on the water. It was beautiful to watch them surfing back and forth along the beach with their multi-colored kites. Look at that surfer above  jump high off a wave! Wow!

The photo above reminds me of one of those hot air balloon festivals!

So cool, don’t you think?

Windblown Sand Dunes At First Encounter Beach on Cape Cod… Two Perspectives!


I  loved this simple photograph of the windblown dune at First Encounter Beach in Eastham, Most of the footprints have been blown away. I took several photos of this dune. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

I couldn’t decide if I liked the 1st one or the 2nd one better. The 2nd one tells a much different story as you can see the windblown tree  and bushes with branches only on one side and the dramatic clouds in the sky.

Which one do you like better?
