A Beach Walk

Hello! A perfect day today---sunny, 75*, light breeze, dry air. Let's go down to the beach to visit the birds and to check out the aftermath of the ''storm".

The boardwalk and benches were removed in case of hurricane. Too bad, especially the dune bench. I was looking forward to a half hour of quiet knitting there on sunny winter days to come.

The oystercatchers left promptly on October 2nd. I saw their small family / flocks circling the beach before they left. Only the gulls and a few sanderlings remain.

The gulls love to soar high in the brilliant blue sky.

October dunes:

Big waves:

To the far left, that speck is a fisherman.
You can see in comparison
how big the waves are.

Sunny days, early sunsets.
