Spooky Sunday

There was no shortage of spooky images at Bass Hole Sunday morning thanks to the low tide, a rolling fog, and a very busy spider.

This Morning’s Setting Moon

I followed the moon to Yarmouth at around 5:00 AM today. Its position in the sky as it set was that of the setting sun during winter. I am only aware of this because I took these photos from a location from which I used to capture the setting winter sun.

Bass Hole Boardwalk

Last week I walked Chapin beach at low tide and was able to capture some images of the boardwalk at Bass Hole/Gray’s Beach. This morning I walked the boardwalk and took photos towards Chapin Beach as well as others.

Friends and Foes Along the Rail Trail

 

What you see are wild plants along the section of the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT) While I was glad to not detect any poison ivy, these plants are invasive and are not native to New England. The two frail, barely visible weeds in the center, however, are very damaging to the soil and create an environment where only poison ivy can thrive.

I spotted very soil friendly clover along the trail. Areas near the parking lots were wisely mass planted with clover. Clover improves the quality of the soil and allows many species of plants to thrive.
