The view from my beach chair - Skywatch Friday


Hubby and I try and head to the beach at least once a month if not more depending on the weather. This trip we spent most of our time in the water. It was just too hot to sit and read a book. I didn't even feel like walking 30 minutes down to the fishing pier to take pictures. Since I had my camera with me I pulled it out and snapped a few pictures to show you our view each month.


We had 2 oystercatchers feeding right in front of us for a while. They hung out along the water's edge. I took this from the beach chair.


I realized when I got home that I have seen this one before. He's got the TT bands on each leg. I reported him on a banding site earlier in the spring.


When I turn around in my beach chair, this is what I see. There's a small trail through these sand dunes to get to the parking area.

  2. Love those scenes.
    REally pretty. Luckily I can't feel the heat :-)
    Must be bad if it stopped you from taking bird pictures.

  4. Love the shot where the oystercatcher is wading in the wave!! His bill looks too long for the size of him!

  5. I grew up a block form the Atlantic Ocean, but I never remember ever see an oystercatcher. I did not know anything about the ringing until I noticed the rings on the birds in your photos. Then I started searching the net trying to figure it all out. I am thinking that this is a way of tracking the population. I really have enjoyed this post. genie
