We took a short vacation to Cape Cod. We mainly enjoyed the beaches and some nightlife, but went birding at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. It's a nice place but our schedule didn't permit us to be there during the best birding times.

Cape Cod Vacation


 
Jersey Shore: Point Pleasant

North Beach, Chatham, MA (Cape Cod)


It may be all the years we spent in California, but we just don't find most of the Jersey shore to be pleasant. This year, we decided to take a short trip to Cape Cod to relax. Our hotel offered day trips to a beach accessible only by boat that gave us the peace and quiet we were looking for, interrupted only by the barking of gray seals.

Photo by Marilyn- Sparta, NJ: House Sparrow Nest??





These chicks hatched from very small light blue eggs with brown speckles about 10 days ago.
My 8 year old son discovered the nest in a hanging fern on our porch as he took it down to water it... What a surprise! Wonder when they will start to fledge?
