The Blue Boxes Are Back On The Salt Marshes On Cape Cod


The “Blue Boxes” have been put on the salt marshes her on Cape Cod to attract those nasty Green Flies and mosquitoes. There’s something inside of the boxes that attracts the insects and then they get stuck inside.

It Is quite amazing how they work. We live very close to the salt marsh  and the beach on Cape Cod Bay and rarely see a Green Fly or a mosquito.

You can see how they put them along the sides of the marsh near the edge where people live.

Cedar Bank Links Golf Course On The Salt Pond Trail On Cape Cod


Years ago, there was a golf course where the Salt Pond Trail in Eastham is now located. There is a marker by the marsh identifying the roller for the golf course in the high grass. You can see it in photograph the on the right of the trail in the distance.

“Eastham’s Cedar Bank Links, a private course, was constructed in the mid 1920’s and existed until just after World War II. The course dominated the landscape that today is occupied by the Cape Cod National Seashore’s visitor’s center and the land surrounding Salt Pond. In fact, the parking lot of the visitor’s center sits where the ninth hole use to be. The 17th green was near where the boathouses stand today.”

Very cool, don’t you think?

Boat Meadow Salt Marsh On Cape Cod At High Tide


We were so surprised to see how high the tide was on the salt marsh by Boat Meadow Beach yesterday. It almost looked as if the river through the marsh was so frozen that the waters from high tide went up on the marsh. It looked like the ocean just came ashore.

It’s been really frigid here the past week. Yesterday was only in the low teens with a wind chill below zero. Brrr…

Boat Meadow Salt Marsh On Cape Cod In The Fall


When walking to the beach, I cross the Boat Meadow Salt Marsh where you can see Cape Cod Bay on one side and the salt marsh on the other side. It is always spectacular and takes your breath away, no matter the season or weather. Mother Nature has done a fine job.

This photograph is looking at the salt marsh with the Cape Cod Rail Trail way in the  background. I think it is so pretty. What do you think?
