November 25, 2021 – Buzzards Bay Recreation Area – Massachusetts

Yesterday Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to the Buzzards Bay Recreation Area in Bourne, Massachusetts, part of Cape Cod. The Buzzards Bay Recreation Area is the northwestern most section of the Cape Cod Canal bikeway. The Area is popular for walking, fishing, biking, and picnicking. It also contains the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge.

We had a sun-shining Adventure to the Buzzards Bay Recreation Area. If you have followed my blog you might think this area looks quite familiar, however this was our first visit to the Buzzards Bay Recreation section of the Cape Cod Canal bikeway. And although a little odd to be out and about on Thanksgiving our family will be celebrating on Saturday, so an ideal day to explore. I often stop at the Cape Cod Canal bikeway on our way up to Cape Cod. It is a great place to walk, the dogs are generally under control, and although far from magnificent there are some lovely sights. The Buzzards Bay Recreation Area started at the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge a unique and spectacular site. From there we followed the trail, and spent about two hours exercising our paws (haha!). I stopped taking photographs once we merged into the connecting Recreation Area to make sure I was capturing only the Buzzards Bay Recreation Area. I was surprised to see so many others out on this holiday, but an especially gorgeous day for late November in New England. Wilma and Gus loved walking, and checking out the sites, while Wilma added some happy rolls, and Gus some stick chewing. It was really a beautiful day, and if we did not have other plans for the Cape we might have gone on forever.

Afterwards we wandered around Buzzards Bay Park a small park containing a statue, and gazebo, and children’s activities. So glad we could visit the Buzzards Bay Recreation Area today (Rating: 3.5)

November 21, 2020 – Tidal Flats Recreation Area – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Tidal Flats Recreation Area in Bourne, Massachusetts, part of Cape Cod. Tidal Flats Recreation Area is the western most section of the Cape Cod Canal bikeway. The Area is popular for walking, fishing, biking, and picnicking. It also contains the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge.

We had a wonderful Adventure to the Tidal Flats Recreation Area. We have been to other sections of the Cape Cod Canal, so had some idea as what to expect. Upon arrival we immediately spotted the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge. I have seen this Bridge from afar, but quite a unique and spectacular Bridge to see from below. We began down the paved walkway. The sun was shining and it was an unusually warm day for November in New England. We walked and walked. There were ducks floating in the current, some gigantic boats passing through, and two bridges to admire. The colors along the route were minimal, but the water was beautiful blue, and the atmosphere peaceful. This is really a simple location but perfect for a nice walk, and of course even better for those out there who are Bridge fanatics. So glad we could enjoy a walk at the Tidal Flats Recreation Area (Rating: 3.5).
