Pretty Blue Star Flower At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary


I saw this blue star-shaped wildflower just outside the Visitor’s Center at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary a few days ago. It was so pretty  but I have no idea what kind of wildflower it is.  I’ve looked in my wildflower books and searched on the internet, but to no avail.

Does anyone know what kind of wildflower this Is?? So pretty, don’t you think?



Cape Cod Bay Beaches Are Still Full Of Huge Ice Chunks


Cape Cod Bay beaches are still filled with huge ice chunks from the storm last week. We couldn’t believe how many chunks there were when we drove to First Encounter Beach in Eastham. You cannot even walk on the beach; there are way too many icebergs. And, as you look out to the bay, all you see is white… no water, just snow. It is truly amazing.

The second photograph is from the Goose Pond Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. You can see the huge chunks that washed up from the marsh over the boardwalk from the storm last week.

People who have lived here for decades have never seen anything like it. Unbelievable!
