A Day At the Beach

Laughing gull sitting next to our beach chairs.

Cute sanderling running around the beach. These little birds are so much fun to watch. They are so tiny and run so fast on their little legs.

Willet dodging the waves.

Sunday morning turned out to be sunny. We loaded up the car with lunch, beach chairs and umbrella and went down to Fort Desoto in St. Petersburg to spend the afternoon. It was a nice quiet time on the beach. Not many people there. We had a few shore birds walk by so I snapped a couple of pictures. The gull stalked our spot the entire time we were there. No treats for him. The rain moved in later in the day so we left, but not before snapping the below picture of the rain in front of us.
