I love taking pictures on the Cape. You will find a variety of scenes from all over the Cape and Islands. Please leave a comment or a request if you would like a picture of a special area.
This is a picture of the harbor side of Sandy Neck. I took it on a whale watching trip out of Barnstable. All I would need is a hammock and a good book. This is what Cape Cod is all about, Sunshine and sandy beaches.
This is a shot from a private association beach in Dennis. This is near Mayflower beach and on Cape Cod Bay. The tides here make it a favorite spot for families.
This is Woods Hole, home of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. WHOI is the world’s largest private, nonprofit ocean research, engineering and education organization. Woods Hole is also the place to catch a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard.
Scargo Tower began as a tourist observatory in 1874. Made of wood, it was destroyed in a gale two years later. Rebuilt again of wood, it burned in 1900. the present cobblestone tower opened in 1901. The 30 foot high tower is located atop the highest hill in the mid-Cape. Indian legends tell of the making of both Scargo Hill and Scargo Lake. Views may be seen of the entire lower cape to Provincetown, and as far west as Plymouth.
I took this picture on a Chatham seal tour boat with my neice. Check out this site for some more great pictures. In the last few years we have been getting a lot of great white sharks coming to the area to feast on our rising seal population. Don’t worry though the beaches are safe with the life gaurds watching close for any sitings.
This is the famous Chatham Bars Inn, one of the finest pieces of Cape Cod Waterfront Real Estate. You have probably been hearing about our Great White sharks. They were a recent segment on Shark Week. There is really little danger to swimmers as long as you are careful to stay away from the seals, that’s what is drawing them to Cape waters.
