It was a gorgeous day at Hemenway Landing by Fort Hill on Cape Cod! The sky was brilliant against the many multi-colored boats on shore, waiting to be taken out on Nauset Marsh.
So medicinal and relaxing… summer is definitely here.
This was such a pretty scene with the hot pink Wild Roses, the multi-colored kayaks and the blue, blue sky above Nauset Marsh. It’s always worth the walk from Fort Hill to sit on that bench and enjoy the beautiful views.
I was taking a hike at Fort Hill and stopped at Hemenway Landing when I heard this racket out on the marsh. There were hundreds of Double-Crested Cormorants in a huge group, or flight, on the water. I’ve never seen anything like this before. Were they all congregating together before they start their migration? Was there really good fish in the water?
I did not see any of them diving, so I didn’t think it was a feeding frenzy. Does anyone have any idea what would cause this?
It was a gorgeous evening for a walk at Fort Hill to Hemenway Landing. I sat on the bench for a bit just enjoying the view of Nauset Marsh. I was surprised at all the boats anchored in the water and on shore.
Colorful, don’t you think?
Yesterday was the perfect day to kayak Nauset Marsh…or any place… on Cape Cod. The weather was perfect… sunny and warm and hardly a ripple on the water.
We launched from Hemenway Landing on Nauset Marsh and were able to paddle out to Nauset Spit the “back way” by Coast Guard Station because it was high tide. At low tide, you cannot get through with all of the sandbars. The water is way too low, even for a kayak.
It was beautiful and we saw lots of different shore birds from Egrets and Great Blue Herons and Cormorants and Sanderlings and Yellowlegs and more. As we neared Nauset Spit we could see some heads bobbing in the water and then a quick splash and a dive under. Yes, the seals were swimming in Nauset Marsh near Nauset Spit. Hopefully the Great Whites won’t follow them in…
An awesome time to get lost in the beauty of Nauset Marsh and everything it has to offer!
