It was a perfect day at Rock Harbor with the sun shining and the blue skies. You can even see the reflection of the boats in the harbor.
I stopped to take a few photographs on my bike ride home.
Pretty, don’t you think?
The flats at low tide tide on Cape Cod Bay are different every time you see them. I loved this photograph of the flats between Rock Harbor and Boat Meadow. It’s so amazing how far the tide goes out at low tide and then how far it comes in at high tide.
So pretty, don’t you think?
There is certainly no shortage of vivid buoys here on Cape Cod. Everywhere you go, there are buoys… in the water, on the side of houses or restaurants, or on a pole. They are everywhere, and so colorful!
Cap’t Cass Restaurant at Rock Harbor in Orleans has some really funky buoys on the side of the restaurant as well as on the fence. It must be one of the nautical attractions of Cape Cod because wherever you look, there are buoys!
One of my favorite things to do is to take a walk to the beach at low tide, especially to a beach on Cape Cod Bay. It is always so gorgeous and you can walk out on the flats for miles.
It was low tide about 3:00 pm the other day and a perfect day for a walk. When I got to Boat Meadow Beach the clouds were just beautiful. And then I could see the huge rock by Rock Harbor with the sun shining through the clouds above it.
Pretty spectacular, don’t you think? I love how the sun and clouds are reflected in the tidal pool with the rippled sand from the flats in the foreground.
Rock Harbor in Orleans is always spectacular whether it is high tide or low tide. I loved this photograph of low tide where you can see the flats go out for miles and the beautiful clouds in the sky. You can see the channel and the channel markers that look like trees in the water.
I took the first photograph about 3-4 weeks ago. I took the second photograph just a few days ago. It was low tide and you can still walk way out. But you don’t see the channel markers. I wonder if they got destroyed with all of the ice that we had. It’s also hard to see where the channel is… I bet it will have to be dredged out again this spring and new channel markers put in.
When my son was here visiting last week we tried to catch sunset at a different beach each night. It was such fun but, boy was it cold!
This sunset was at Rock Harbor. I really like the tidal pools in the foreground and the yellow ring around the sun…
Pretty, don’t you think?
Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year filled with love, peace, laughter, and a little bit of time outside! 🙂
