Scenes from the Cape

I really haven't been to Cape Cod as much this year as I have in years past, mostly because I am back in school and don't have as much time to travel. Recently I've been looking through my photos from early 2011 to try and remember what early Spring scenes I might find if I decide to head up there next week during Spring Break.

This is the view looking south toward Long Island Sound, from Dennisport, Massachusetts. This is the portion of Cape Cod that makes up the "bicep" of the arm shape.  A few more miles East, the Cape bends upward and the coast is the Atlantic Ocean instead of the Sound.

The scene above is from Falmouth, near Nobska Lighthouse. A few minutes after I snapped this a group (gaggle?) of Cormorants landed on these rocks and began drying their wings off.

A little baby sky rainbow.

I love this sign for obvious reasons.

White blossoms along the shore in Eastham.  The water here is actually quite a bit below the dunes. In fact there are signs everywhere with scary looking stick figures that appear to be falling to their deaths. Here is the stairway you climb down to get to the water in Eastham..

The dunes of Wellfleet are even higher. The water here is several hundred feet down. I didn't bother climbing down there, because the trip back up would have been difficult and there wasn't anyone around to save me if something should happen. Photography has its risks, you know!

Jimmy's pizza and ice cream was open for business. Good old-fashioned Cape road trip food...a must- have for photographic day-trips. :)

I have never been to the cape. Can you believe it? I went to Martha's Vineyard once, many years ago. Such a lovely place. Maybe this summer you'll get to travel a bit more. Luckily you have gorgeous memories from summers past : )

Oh I hope you have a lovely trip over Spring Break :)

Even though I haven't been to the east coast I have been to Falmouth, the one in Cornwall England (He! He!) One day it would be so much fun to compare them :)

Love your images as always :)

Thanks for you lovely comment, you're sweet :)

Have a great Spring Break, cheers, T. :)
