Beautiful Lilies Of The Valley Along The Trails On Cape Cod.

216 views

It must be that time of the year for the ┬áLilies of the Valley to bloom. They are so beautiful. We’ve seen so many of them on our last few hikes. They are such a delicate little flower with such a pretty bell-shape.

I took the first photograph on the Doane Rock Trail heading out to Coast Guard Beach and the 2nd photograph on the Nauset Marsh Trail before you get to the overlook of Nauset Marsh. The 2nd one looks like a whole garden of Lilies of the Valley.

So pretty, don’t you think?

Beautiful Snowy Egret Reflection At Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.

233 views

I haven’t see a Snowy Egret in a long time, so this was a real treat to see one at Nauset Marsh. It was low tide so the birds were stalking their prey in the shallow waters. I loved the reflections of the Snowy Egret and the Seagull near the boardwalk.

The lighting was so pretty. What do you think?

Wishing you a Happy Easter. May you find some time to get outside and enjoy nature… or collect some Easter eggs!

Beautiful Reflections At Hemenway Landing On Cape Cod…In Black And White Or Color?

197 views

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?

 

Nauset Marsh Trail In Eastham On Cape Cod is On The AllTrails App.

277 views

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.

Great Blue Herons High In The Tree On Cape Cod!

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?
