First Encounter Beach Dune On Cape Cod… One Big Problem!

The sky behind the dunes at First Encounter Beach the other morning was just spectacular! I stopped to take a photograph but there was one big problem… I couldn’t get my shadow out of the photo!  (Click on blog for other photo.)

I tried stepping aside and got a photograph with just the dune but the sky in the background isn’t nearly as pretty as if you take the dune straight-on.

 

It Feels Like Summer On Cape Cod!

What crazy weather we’ve been having! Two weeks ago I had my winter parka on with hat and mittens and today it’s warm enough to sit on the beach! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Yesterday started out cool and cloudy, but by 2:00 it had changed to sunny, hot and humid. I took a little bike ride and was so surprised to see all of the cars, and people, at First Encounter Beach. Wow! They were enjoying the first real sunny, hot day this season.

I guess it could be worse… one of my friends from the town where we used to live in Colorado was expecting 18-24″ of snow yesterday!

 

 

Kite Surfing On The Salt Marsh On Cape Cod!

With extremely windy conditions lately, the kite surfers were out en force on the salt marsh by First Encounter Beach the other day. We counted 9 of them nearby. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

It was so much fun to watch them as they flew by and then did they acrobatics in the sky. Have you ever seen kite surfers?

How cool  is that? They’ve got to be really good to all kite surf in such a small area?

The Lull Before The Big Storm On Cape Cod!

The forecast was for 3 days of high winds and  lots of rain, so I was ready to stay inside all day yesterday and get some work done. After lunch, the sun came out briefly and it dried up the roads enough to go for a nice bike ride. What a treat!

The clouds in the sky were spectacular! I took this photograph at First Encounter Beach looking toward one of the dunes. So pretty, don’t you think?

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?
