Our son and daughter-in-law had their first baby last week. Her small foot is covered with a kiss.

Migrating Shorebirds

Red Knots stop off in Delaware Bay to refuel on their migration from the southern end of South America to north of Hudson’s Bay. The peak of the migrating population was last week but there are still many feeding on horseshoe crab eggs.

Memorial Day Beginning and End

The sun rose over fishing boats this morning and set as skim boarders rode the last waves of the day. It was a perfect day to kick off the summer beach season at the Delaware Coast.

Gulls don’t really bathe this way, but this one kicked up a nice splash as it defended its space.
