Gorgeous Hike Sunday At Nickerson State Park On Cape Cod!


It seems like every hike that every hike we take at Nickerson State Park is a 10! They are all so diverse and there is so much to see. (Click on blog link to see water tower.)

After the torrential rains on Saturday we got up early¬† on Sunday and took a trail near the old water tower. It’s a great hike, but not for the feint of heart! And there are so many different intersecting trails that you can make up your own different itinerary each time you go!

Vibrant Red Berries On The Bearberry Plants On Cape Cod.


The Bearberry ground plants are still green and the little whitish-pink bell-shaped flowers that bloomed from March through June have turned into bright red berries to adorn them in December. They remind me of the holidays!

I’ve seen lots of them along the wooded trails at Nickerson State Park. So pretty, don’t you think? Have you seen any?

Beautiful Stay Safe Message On The Trail On Cape Cod.


We were hiking at Nickerson State Park when I noticed something blue at the top of one of the dead trees in the middle of the trail. At first I thought it was a blue trail marker, but what would it be doing way up there? (Click on blog link for other photo.)

As I got closer and hiked by it, I realized when I turned around that it was a hand-painted seashell that said, “Stay Safe.” It was meant to be seen by hikers going in the opposite direction.

What a wonderful, little thoughtful message that someone placed there for everyone to see. Thank you to whomever put it there. I’m sure it will bring a smile to many people’s faces.

Stay safe!
