Fort Hill

One of the best views on the outer cap is at Fort Hill which is part of The National Seashore which is part of the United States National Park system. Fort Hill is adjacent to the Penniman House, a historical whalers house built in 1868. The view is beautiful of the marshes, barrier islands and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. In the springtime, the fields are bursting with color from the great variety of wild flowers. Today there were pink Sea Roses and white Yarrow. The green of the marsh is really this vibrant with the darker blue water. Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Beta sketchbook.
