Chasing and Waiting

After an afternoon of bright sunshine, fog formed along the horizon. `The moon appeared more distinctly as it rose in the early evening sky. It was a good night to chase the moon.

Twilight at Veteran’s Beach, Hyannis


July 4th Information for Hyannis/ Mid Cape

Hope you all have a fun and safe July 4 celebration today and tonight.

There are many places to go and things to see in Hyannis before and after the fireworks display.

The sun sets at 8:19 pm and the Fireworks are scheduled to begin at 9:00 pm.

Link to activities and schedules from town of Barnstable:

If you are looking to enjoy the fireworks over Lewis Bay and be on your way to go other places, viewing from the West Yarmouth side of Lewis bay will give you a great view of the display with less traffic congestion.

Englewood Beach is less than a 20 minute walk from route 28 and its parking options. The parking spots at this small beach will fill quickly. The view from the boat slip area is excellent.

Another option would be Colonial Acres Beach. The walk from route 28 and its parking options is less than 15 minutes.

Below are photos from Englewood Beach July 4, 2017


These West Yarmouth locations provide great views of the setting sun as well:


Geese Gathering in Hyannis


Geese gathered during the serene moments before sunrise. They called out to a group at a nearby marsh. Soon there was much noise and commotion as the call was answered and the groups combined and all took flight.

Damn tourists.

Waiting for Spring

This morning I was in Hyannis to catch the early morning light. Spring is less than a week away but it sure didn’t feel like Spring was coming soon. With the snow in the foreground of these beach photos, it doesn’t look like Spring in near either.

Birds along the shore seemed to be waiting for Spring.
