Beach Weekend

Hi! Come to the beach! It's lovely...in a softly overcast kinda way...

I've been working late every night, making sure my quilting projects are ready to go! I get a lot done, sitting here in my somewhat shabby chair...

Just me and the little guys!
Sometimes I return from a walk and find my beach bag searched and strewn across the sand. I no longer bring snacks if I am planning to walk or beachcomb.

Remember him?

He's always right beside me.....

And he often brings all his friends!

Black backed gulls and a very large flock
of newly arrived from the Arctic Circles:


large, unusual diving duck [merganser?] or cormorant

more sanderlings..
they haven't settled in yet, just arrived

two semipalmated plovers, far left/ far right

 It was very peaceful....

Note my lovely turquoise toes! Among the footprints of all the birds.



gone to the beach....
