Spring on Cape Cod

Spring is in full swing here in Falmouth and across the Cape.  In fact, the early daylight savings time change allows plenty of time to spend a day exploring Cape Cod.  A very nice day would be a drive along Route 6A.  The Museum of Natural History in Brewster is an 80-acre site of conservation land that offers exhibits, nature trails, birding, archaeology, walks and other events.  Continue on to Provincetown to witness the return of the North Atlantic right whales.  An endangered species, there are only about 500 North Atlantic right whales in existence and 315 were recorded in Cape Cod Bay in 2011.  Experts note that more whales are in Cape waters earlier than ever this year and exhibiting some unusual behaviors.  Although whale watch excursions have not started yet, the whales can be observed breaching right off Race Point Beach  The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies has conducted marine research and whale rescues since 1975.  Visit their website for more information about these amazing creatures or consider a visit to Cape Cod to see them for yourself!
