Wonder if they're finding any interesting titbits in the sand Kate, handy having a 'spear' as a beak!
P.s. your description of grits, and Genie's, sounds very much like something we had when we lived in Africa.. For some reason I always thought grits involved meat!
What lovely photos...it's been too long since I've wandered along a beach breathing in the salty air.
love these captures.
I'd guess you happy to be where you are right now than back home in Minnesota! But then I'm not sure if this new blizzard hit the Twin Cities or not. Still...But your photo triggered a desire to hit the beach. Maybe we'll drive over to Cedar Key today. Hmm...Just in case you did do an Internet search: Johnny Ray died young (1992, I think). Unfortunately, he had a problem with alcohol and his liver gave out. He had other problems, too, but he sure could sing.
It is always so peaceful to watch birds along the water edge. Lovely frothy water too.
I can only DREAM about these birds today... 33 inches and counting outside my windows.
Love these shore birds.
I appears that the storm did not curtail your beach walking. That is a good thing!
I am wondering if the first pictures are of Sand Pipers?
I agree looks like you had some nice weather. Love that first shot.
I wish I could walk that beach with you and the birds.
Looks like you are enjoying your visit!
I wonder whether pigeons or gulls are the world's most numerous scavenger bird.
That weather looks perfect for a beach walk.
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
