I really liked this photo of the flats on Coast Guard Beach down by Nauset Spit. What do you think?
We had a wonderful paddle in our kayaks around Nauset Marsh from Goose Hummock the other day. It was a gorgeous day, with blue skies and a nice breeze. A nice respite from the hot and humid weather that we have been having lately. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)
We saw several seals swimming in the waters near Nauset Spit, which we have seen for the past couple of years. It wasn’t until we started to paddle back via another route that we heard this very loud cacophony which sounded just like seals. As we got closer we could see a sandbar that had hundreds of seals lazing about. Wow! We were shocked… that there were so many seals there so far from the spit and not very far from Town Cove. When did that happen?
Has anyone else seen all of these seals on the marsh side of Nauset Spit?
I love walking to the end of Coast Guard Beach. It’s a beautiful walk where you might see some nesting birds. It was low tide when we walked there last and the ripples in the sand made for such an interesting photograph.
You have Coast Guard Beach on the left and Nauset Beach way in the distance on the right. You can see the little specks of people across Nauset Spit walking on Nauset Beach.
(I took this photograph last week before Coast Guard Beach was closed because of heavy erosion.)
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!
