The weather for Easter is for a sunny day with warmer temps which is a wonderful welcome here on Cape Cod. I loved this photograph of Nauset Marsh where you can Coast Guard Station in the background. The colors of the water and the sky were magnificent!
Wishing you all a Happy Easter and may you find a few minutes to enjoy a little bit of nature….maybe and outside Easter Egg hunt?? 🙂
The walk from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach is just spectacular! You hike through the woods along a handicapped accessible trail, along the salt marsh, across this gorgeous boardwalk over the salt marsh and then through the woods to Coast Guard Beach, one of the prettiest beaches on Cape Cod.
This was the first time that we walked over the bridge and there was water on both sides because of the high, high tide. Usually there is just a little creek running through the salt marsh from Nauset Marsh.
It doesn’t get much prettier! What do you think?
I took this photograph of the bench, our favorite picnic spot, on Saturday during the storm at high tide, looking out at Nauset Marsh, but there is no marsh. It looks like the ocean has come ashore.
This 2nd photograph is of Hemenway Landing next to Fort Hill where you can see the boats washed ashore. This is also on Nauset Marsh which looked like a raging ocean. Wow!
Coast Guard Beach was hammered last weekend during the huge storm. I took a run down to the beach to see what it looked like, but couldn’t get to the beach because the water was so high. This is as far as I got along the trail. The ocean was raging!
The 2nd photograph shows the boardwalk on Nauset Marsh that we walk on to get from Coast Guard Beach to Doane Rock underwater. That is unbelievable! I have never seen the water this high!
The beautiful, hundreds of years old, iconic tree at Fort Hill on Cape Cod has fallen. How very sad. We were shocked to see this beauty down. It has graced the landscape of Fort Hill, part of the National Seashore, for many, many years.
We stopped at Fort Hill again this morning and the owner of the house and the “tree” was outside. We expressed our condolences. She said she was having “Visiting Hours” for anyone who wanted to stop by. 🙁
Unbelievable what Mother Nature can do! What storm!
It was a beautiful day for a hike at Fort Hill, one of our favorite places to hikes. I love to park in the lower parking lot and take the Red Maple Swamp Trail through the swamp on the boardwalk to Hemenway Landing. From there you can hike up to Carving Rock and along Nauset Marsh and up to the overlook.
It doesn’t get much prettier!
