Nickerson State Park in Brewster

by Donna Cain

I love our seasons on Cape Cod. I have to chuckle at myself as I always say a particular season is my favorite until the next season arrives which is my new favorite.

As we move into our quiet season Byron and I love to take a different walk each day and to explore some new areas. We always have our favorites and a walk around the beautiful kettle ponds in our Nickerson State Park is among our favorites. Today, we drove all the way to the back of the park and walked around Higgins and Eel Ponds. The colors were astonishing.


This picture was taken on the south side of Higgins Pond. I have been experimenting with different photo techniques using my I-phone. It’s just amazing where the technology has gone.


Harrison just loves to pose for pictures.


The numerous kettle ponds within the park are so clear and beautiful. The park  is a state-owned and has more than 1,900 acres. The park has sandy soil and many scrub pines surround many kettle ponds which are dependent on groundwater and precipitation.
