Lots Of Seals Along The Ocean Beaches On Cape Cod

142 views

If you walk along the ocean beaches on Cape Cod, you are sure to see seals swimming along the shore, diving in and out of the waves. I’ve seen a lot of seals at Coast Guard Beach and Nauset Beach in the past few days.

If you walk all the way to Nauset Spit at low tide from either Nauset Beach or Coast Guard Beach, you can see what I call “seal island.” It is a sand bar, not too far from shore, that the seals pile on at low tide. You can hear their distinctive sounds from quite far away.

This 2nd photograph was taken from the end of Coast Guard Beach a few days ago.

 

Another Gorgeous Kayaking Day On Cape Cod

It was another picture-perfect day for kayaking the Nauset Marsh out to Nauset Spit. We launched from Goose Hummock, so it was a nice long paddle. And yes, we did see a few seals along the way.

We remembered our folding seats that fit in the hatch, so that was a big treat at lunchtime. Just sit down, relax and enjoy those last days of summer.

It doesn’t get much prettier!

The views over Nauset Marsh to Nauset Spit, where Nauset Beach is separated from Coast Guard Beach by a breach, is spectacular… any time of the day, any time of the year.

I really liked this photograph looking through the trees out onto Nauset Marsh from the carving stone at Fort Hill. It was evening but there were still plenty of boats out enjoying the gorgeous summer weather.

Pretty photograph, don’t you think?

The Views From Fort Hill On Cape Cod Were Spectacular!

It was a beautiful evening for a walk at Fort Hill in Eastham. Through the abundant pink Everlasting Pea wildflowers in the meadows, you could see a 3-masted sailboat sailing across the horizon going from Nauset Beach toward Coast Guard Beach. It was gorgeous with Nauset Marsh in the foreground!

This was another gorgeous day to photograph Nauset Beach, part of the National Seashore,  looking south toward Chatham. The lifeguard chairs are out and the beach looks pretty big for summer vacationers to enjoy. You can still see the roped off area for the Piping Plovers and Least Terns to nest.

Beautiful, don’t you think?
