Out and About, Manomet, Chiltonville, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

It was a beautiful day for a walk in Manomet instead of dodging the high tide at White Horse Beach. Here's a spectacular view overlooking Cape Cod Bay from Manomet Bluff - and an obliging Amy in her fuchsia sweater and trademark hat! The tip of land at the right is Stage Point.  

On days when you can see the horizon clearly, the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod is just visible twenty miles away straight across the bay (75 miles if you have to drive on the roads across the entire cape). (Panorama - click on image to view in full width).

Earlier in the day at lower tide and before the beach was covered in the shadow of the bluff.

And just a few hundred yards away at a small pond, this adult Red-shouldered Hawk was perched on a dead tree looking for lunch.

Since I was inside and making this image through dirty double-paned glass he didn't fly away at my movement. Of course, it's not very sharp for the same reason.

I didn't see any hawks here, but fall colors were looking good on Bartlett Brook.

And in the neighboring community of Chiltonville, these old beech trees grace the approach to Bramhall's Country Store. 

Behind the store is the Chilton Congregational Church, the ninth offshoot of the original Church of the Pilgrims.
