Contrasting Islands

A quick over night in New York City this week to see a show (Kinky Boots- loved it!) and walk around the city.

Just a bit different than my normal surroundings!

Instead of laughing gulls…car horns and sirens.

Instead of the solitude of my morning beach walk…the “look alert” pace of crossing streets to a specific destination.

Fun to see the real world…and then return home :)

And what a weekend!

Great weather for walks…thank goodness because we took advantage of the many food establishments now open ;)

See you on the beach!

Winter Wildlife

I get excited when I find a nice piece of sea glass during my daily beach walk.  So you can imagine how I feel when I encounter a bald eagle, a snowy owl, or a seal! *

It was cold and windy yesterday morning.  I walked south up against the dune fencing to block the wind.  On the return, I walked closer to the water (yet still grumbling about the cold!).  I was thinking about finishing my walk back on the street to warm up…but I’m so glad I stayed on the sand.

As I approached the jetty, I noticed movement.  A seal!

The rocks camouflaged the little guy, and I probably walked right past him as I started my walk!

A great way to start the weekend  :)

*No slight intended to the beach walk “regulars”: osprey, oystercatchers, dolphins, and the occasional whale!
