We were taking a walk around the Salt Pond by the Visitor’s Center the other day when we saw this huge horseshoe crab right at the high tide mark. Oh no! It was sitting in the grass and needed to get back to the water.
We hemmed and hawed about how to get it back in the water and came up with a good plan. As Phil lifted it up very carefully so as not to scare it, we realized it was only the shell. Ha! Ha!
The joke was on us!! He really had us fooled!! It looked so real!
The trail along the Salt Pond by the National Seashore Visitor’s Center in Eastham was so pretty this fall day. You never know what you might see. The sun was shining brightly on Nauset Marsh. We even saw a few Cabbage White butterflies still flying about.
If you haven’t hiked the Salt Pond Trail in Eastham on Cape Cod, put it on your list. It’s part of the National Seashore and takes you through many diverse habitats, even though it is not a long hike.
I loved this photograph of going over the bridge with Nauset Marsh in the background. Aren’t the clouds gorgeous?
Such a pretty day!
