One of my favorite things to do this time of the year is to get up and go for an early morning bike ride before anyone else is out on the road. Yesterday was just beautiful… the first day in a long time that wasn’t too cold or too foggy or too wet or too windy. It was just perfect!
I love the ride over the salt marsh with the sun just coming up. I took this photograph yesterday morning about 5:45 am. So pretty, don’t you think?
The colors of the sunset were so pretty over the salt marsh the other night. We are all so lucky to live near the ocean and the bay and be able to see these gorgeous sunrises and sunsets!
Beautiful colors, don’t you think?
We were taking a hike along the Nauset Marsh Trail past the Salt Pond when we saw this Great Blue Heron in the marsh stalking his prey for his next meal. (Click on blog link for series of photos.)
I thought it would be interesting to post a series of photos as he was so much fun to watch. In photos 2 and 3 you can see him stalking in the wetlands and then darting for the fish.
The 4th photograph shows his total contentment with his satisfying lunch.
And the last photograph shows him flying away…
Still my favorite bird… he’s just gorgeous!
This was such a pretty sunset over the salt marsh with the golden reflections on the winding creek.
The clouds almost look like giant birds in the sky…
One of my favorite walks is over the salt marsh where you can see the winding creek that goes up and down with the tides. Even in winter with the snow, it is still beautiful.
Every time I post a “snowy” photograph this time of the year, I think may be this is the last snowy one for the season. Not quite yet…
I love this bench overlooking the salt marsh. The snow was so pretty yesterday morning.
