It only lasted a minute when there wasn’t a ripple in the water and you could see the reflections of these three boats all lined up on Nauset Marsh. And then the wind kicked up… I couldn’t decide if I like black and white or color better.
What do you think?
One of tour favorite hikes is the one by the Visitors Center in Eastham called the Nauset Marsh Trail. We’ve always called it the Salt Pond Trail. It is such a pretty hike. (Click for more photos or a map at the end.)
The Nauset marsh Trail has so much diversity from hiking around the Salt Pond, over a bridge over the salt marsh where you can see many water birds feeding and through the woods to a gorgeous overlook of Nauset Marsh all the way out to Nauset Beach. From there you can hike back to the Visitors Center or continue out to Doane Rock and Coast Guard Beach.
It really is an awesome hike, any time of the day and any time of the year.
I am always so surprised to Great Blue Herons way up high in a tree. It just seems natural that they are by the shore fishing, not up in a tree resting.
I saw these two Great Blue Herons on the Nauset Marsh Trail by the Salt Pond. Pretty cool, huh?
It was a gorgeous day for a nice hike at Fort Hill. It was sunny with temps in the 40s but little wind. We had just hiked up to the overlook when this seagull looked as if it was posing on the map of the National Seashore with Nauset Marsh and then Coast Guard Station way in the background.
Beautiful, don’t you think?
I love the hike from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach and the little off-shoot trail that overlooks Nauset Marsh. I thought this was such a cool photograph of the tall cattails with Nauset Marsh and Nauset Beach in the background.
And then I was editing it with my new camera and couldn’t decide which one I liked better. What do you think?
The Great Blue Heron is my very favorite bird! I love its features and the majestic way it moves. We were walking the Salt Pond Trail and saw this Great Blue looking for his next meal.
Beautiful bird, don’t you think?
