Spectacular Day For Kayaking Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod

144 views

It was a glorious day… sunny with little wind and a perfect day to take our kayaks out on the water. We launched at Good Hummock in Orleans and paddled Town Cove to Nauset Marsh and then out along the outer beach to Nauset Spit. It couldn’t get any prettier!

We stopped for a bit to rest and had some lunch. There were a lot of boats in the water and many kayakers enjoying the day.  We took a different route back and paddled  in through Nauset Marsh, going by Fort Hill and Hemenway Landing. So beautiful…

It was definitely a “pinch me” day! 🙂

I saw this little white Canada Mayflower wildflower a couple of weeks ago at Hemenway Landing by Fort Hill. It is a small woodland plant with tiny 4-petaled flowers clustered on a stem. They only grow 3-6″ in May and June.

I liked the macro of it as you can see its tiny details. So pretty, don’t you think? Have you ever seen a Canada Mayflower?
