Two Stunning Views: Race Point Light and a Sleepy Lady Eider – Day 83

My focus of this past week’s trip to PTown was, indeed, the BIRDS!

But I also got to see some truly beautiful spots, with great views.

Like the view of Race Point Lighthouse from Herring Cove Beach, something I had never seen before awaaay across the water.


The air smelled SO good out there on the water, and the sea looked so blue-blue.

Last night I posted a photo of a stunning Eider drake at MacMillan Wharf.

And here, tonight, is one of the Lady Eiders I met there, too.


She was especially kind to give me a really close look at her gorgeous feathers, so many different layers of black, white and rich reddish-brown.

I thought she looked a bit on the sleepy side, almost as if the sea was gently rocking her to sleep.

It made me wish I could join her…  😉


Can you see now, why I believe that the Ladies are every bit as gorgeous as the Gents??  ❤

First Red-Winged of the Season – Day 78

My first Redwinged of the season!


Buffeted by a stiff wind…


He was such a handsome fellow…


Indeed!  😉


“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up” – Day 59

I must have taken (easily) 200 photos of this adorable Harp Seal on my recent trip to PTown, long before I’d even photographed a single BIRD!


He looked so incredibly relaxed and happy, lying there on the sand.


I found him so utterly captivating, those flippers were outa’ this world!

But don’t take my word for it…

Just take a look at this slideshow, and tell me if this little guy isn’t THE CUTEST!

A Ptown Teaser – Day 53

Made it to Provincetown today, first time in I can’t remember HOW long.

Too long.

And as some of you might imagine, all I could see were… the BIRDS!


I will be sharing some of these amazing feathered Ptown friends in mt blogs to come.

One and the same birds, I can assure you, that I’ll be dreaming about tonight.  ❤
