First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod… Two Views.

Last Saturday was a gorgeous day for a bike ride as temps were in the lower 70s here on the Cape. It was just spectacular! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I loved this photograph of the dune at First Encounter Beach. And then I zoomed out… now I can’t decide which one I like better.

What do you think? Which one do you  like better?

Summer’s Almost Over On Cape Cod!

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?

The Shadows Are Getting Longer On Cape Cod!

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.

Too funny…

 

First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod’s Welcoming Committee!

Whenever I ride my bike down to First Encounter Beach early in the morning, there is always a “Welcoming Committee” of Willetts ready to greet me. They are so many of them… on the First Encounter sign, on the fence, on the fence posts and on the top of the trees. They are all chatting away. There must be 15-20 of them all around.

The Willett is a  wonderful sign of summer and such a beautiful and social bird!

And so nice to see first thing in the morning!
