Two young 50-something females. One big adventure exploring the Americas. Have liquidated everything they own and packed a Saturn Vue with bare necessities to set out on this journey. Planting seeds at each juncture symbolizing their new growth. With an open mind and heart, ready to get a true view of this world.

Audobon Bliss

Our journey brings us to Wellfleet, just a bit south of Truro on the cape, this morning for a visit to the Mass Audubon hosted Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Five miles of interlocking trails are found here providing the most diverse habitats we could imagine. What beauty exists here!

Pine forests abound, ponds, cliff walks over springs, a boardwalk to the bay, a hilly island walk, and a marsh paradise are all available inside this beautiful little haven. We take in every bit of trail we can find and enjoy many hours of serenity and absolute wonder. Tops our lists of hikes easily.

The orientation center displays a wealth of information and has a lovely butterfly garden as an entrance to the area. All volunteers are more than helpful and quite proud of their paradise, rightfully so. There are a spattering of guests this morning, equally enjoying this bit of heaven. Smiling faces everywhere - how nice!

Just one more amazing gem found on this beautiful cape - this is one gorgeous place!!!

  1. Photos are GORGEOUS! Can't wait for the album to hit the bookstores!

    "marsh paradise" seems to me a contradiction in terms. ;)
