When we lived in the mountains of Colorado, it was just gorgeous but we rarely saw any clouds in the sky. It was always sunny.
The first thing I remarked on when we moved to the Cape were the beautiful clouds. Every day is different and every sky is different.
I never get sick of this view of Nauset Marsh looking out toward Coast Guard Station from Fort Hill. I love the clouds along the horizon over the water.
The view doesn’t get much better on the Goose Pond Trail which takes you to the outer beach at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. It’s a gorgeous trail through the woods and over the salt marsh out to the beach. This is just one of the many benches along the trails where you can sit down, relax and take it all in.
This bench overlooks the salt marsh out by the beach which is mostly filled in with water at high tide. Beware that the salt marsh fills in very quickly, so best to hike to the outer beach only when the tide is going out or at low tide.
The tides has been really high this winter. You can’t see any land in this photo of the salt marsh. Usually it is all land with a creek meandering through it. Wow!
We had never been to Pamet Harbor, so we took a ride up there the other day. It was so pretty with their vast beaches and secluded salt marshes and this beautiful dock that extended way out into the harbor.
It must look so different in season when it is crowded with boats and people. You can see all of the moorings waiting for their boats…
Oh my! I saw the pinkish sky out my windows and knew it would be a gorgeous sunrise over the salt marsh. I wasn’t disappointed. It was spectacular! What a way to start the last day of 2022!
Happy New Year’s Eve to you all!
