Flag Of Honor At Hemenway Landing On Cape Cod.

There is a new “Flag of Honor”  flying over the bench and memorial statue at Hemenway Landing honoring a man from Eastham who died on 9/11.

“The ‘Flag Of Honor’ has been created with the sincerest intentions of honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. This flag includes the names of everyone who perished on 9/11: on all of the planes, at Shanksville, PA, the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.”

May you find peace and love and a few minutes today to honor all those who died on 9/11 and their families.

Gorgeous Northern Bobwhite At Fort Hill On Cape Cod!

It’s amazing how, so often, you just happen to be at the right place at the right time. I was hiking at Fort Hill on Friday and decided to hang out a bit at Hemenway Landing taking some photographs of the horseshoe crabs mating near the shore. It was pretty cool. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

And then, as I walked up the trail, I heard a distinct call of “Bob-white! Bob-white!” I knew there was a Bobwhite nearby. But where? I quietly looked about the brush and trees and then found him on a branch overlooking Nauset Marsh. He was only about 15-20 feet from me and he hadn’t seen me yet. I quietly clicked away and got some amazing photos.

I’ve only seen the Bobwhite 3 times since we moved here 6 years ago, so it was a big treat. If I hadn’t stopped to check out those horseshoe crabs, I might have missed this elusive bird.

Just happy that… I was at the right place at the right time! Gorgeous bird, don’t you think?
