I next headed east along Rte 6A and stopped at the Museum of Natural History. I didn't go inside, having spent my money at the Brewster Store. But the nature trails were free so I took the opportunity to go for a nice walk.
This is an osprey nest with what looks to me to be a youngster. There is a pole and camera next to the nest and you can watch it in real time online.
The trail across the marshes is comprised of wooden planks set side by side that are a little bouncy as you go across the spongy grasses. I got halfway across and realized that I had not checked the tide table and I had no idea how flooded this marsh gets at high tide. But I rolled the dice and kept going.
After I passed the Sachemas' calendar, I came upon another small trail map that indicated 'wooden stairs'. Yes, I had to see what that was all about so I pressed on. I was surprised at how short of a walk it was going to be to the beach! How could I resist a little beachcombing?!?!

What a cute and narrow little beach!!!!
I walked it in both directions, but there was absolutely zero glass. Not even a chip!
I did see a dead horseshoe crab though.
This part of the Bay is a little marshy and sandy, so there's grass in the water.
What a day!!!
I didn't take too many more pics on the way out, but this was really cute.
