Skywatch Friday: Chase Garden Creek

Last Tuesday, I went with Audubon's Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary to Chase Garden Creek of Yarmouth, Cape Cod for a three-hour Kayak Trip.  It was a perfect day with temperature just around 70F.  This picture was taken from Gray's Beach toward west over looking the Sandy Neck.  The lighthouse of Sandy Neck can be seen at the left hand side in the distance.

This is the view of Chapin Memorial Beach from Gray's Beach looking toward northeast.  Overall it was a very nice trip.  It was the first time that I did kayaking, I have only done canoeing before.


Paddling up the Chase Garden Creek was also very interesting with various sea birds and ospreys in the mash land on the  two sides of the creek.   The water was very shallow and tide was going out.  Here Ian, Director of the Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary was explaining to us about the features of the horseshoe crab that he picked up from the sand bottom of the creek.

Great idea to go Kayaking! You see a lot more on the water than on the shore. What a remarkable animal the horseshoe crab is! It has a long tail and looks dangerous. Fantastic shots! Thanks for sharing!
