Pretty Pink Water-Willows Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

The unique Water-Willow is an 3-9 foot aquatic shrub with 1/2 to 1 inch magenta flowers that blooms in July and August. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I’ve seen them growing in the shallow waters on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill, the Silver Spring Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellfleet  or at Wiley Park by the bridge. It is really cool to see how they grow in clusters along the main stem.

Have you seen any Water-Willows this summer? #eastham #wellfleet


Mystery At Wiley Park On Cape Cod…

The other day when I was walking over the bridge at Wiley Park, I  noticed some bird tracks on the bridge. They were just huge! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

That must be a mighty big bird, but why are the tracks white? Any ideas on whose tracks they are or how they got white?


Snowy Trails At Wiley Park On Cape Cod.

It’s been so pretty hiking the snowy trails at Wiley Park the past few days. I’ve even used my hiking poles a few times as it’s been a bit icy in spots, especially the shade. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

There’s nothing like the quiet peacefulness of a hike on a snowy trail with just the crunch of your boots on the snow.

Perfect Spot To Relax At Great Pond On Cape Cod.

I love to hike the trails at Wiley Park and look out onto Great Pond. You never know what you will see. And if you’re lucky and no one is around, there is the perfect bench to sit and relax and just gaze at all the beauty around.

This was a mostly cloudy day and there was still a bit of ice along the shore, but still so pretty and peaceful.
