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 a perfect fall day to go kayaking at Nauset Marsh, part of the National Seashore. I loved the coloring with the sun on the tandem kayak and the deep blue water of the saltmarsh. You can see Nauset Spit in the background.
Pretty, don’t you think?
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!
It was a glorious day… sunny with little wind and a perfect day to take our kayaks out on the water. We launched at Good Hummock in Orleans and paddled Town Cove to Nauset Marsh and then out along the outer beach to Nauset Spit. It couldn’t get any prettier!
We stopped for a bit to rest and had some lunch. There were a lot of boats in the water and many kayakers enjoying the day. We took a different route back and paddled in through Nauset Marsh, going by Fort Hill and Hemenway Landing. So beautiful…
It was definitely a “pinch me” day! 🙂
If you walk down Coast Guard Beach, you will come to Nauset Spit where the ocean empties into the salt marsh at high tide and the waters recede at low tide. It is where boats can navigate in and out of Orleans Cove by following the buoys. There is a huge swing from high tide to low tide.
I couldn’t decide if I like the horizontal or vertical photograph of Nauset Spit at low tide better. What do you think?
I took these photographs a couple of weeks ago before the Nor’easter. I wonder what it will look like when we can get back there again… It has been so cold and windy that we haven’t walked there yet.
There were so many birds flying over the water and then diving in off of Nauset Spit the other day. The fish must have been very plentiful right there. It looks like there were many different species of birds enjoying their feast!
This photograph only captures a small percentage of the birds diving and feeding there. Have you ever seen anything like this?
