All pictures today are taken by my girlfriend Patti, who played with my camera down at the beach!
Acorns on live oak trees...they are called live oak because they don't go dormant in the winter, they keep their leaves all winter.
We asked a ranger what these fruit were, he told us persimmon
The boardwalk over the dunes to the beach. We are asked to only access the beach via the boardwalks, to better protect the dunes from erosion and damage
For allergy sufferers, an unwelcome sight..goldenrod! makes pretty pictures though
Early morning bird tracks in the sand
Does life get any better than this? They are having such a great time!
A pole for every bird!
Pelicans in flight
Sanderlings in flight...they are all over the beach
Need a pair of sunglasses?
Across the dunes
The afternoon was spent visiting family and viewing their homes here in Virginia Beach and Norfolk. We then gathered for dinner back at the condo, with us cooking chicken at the campsite and salads brought in from the store. I will say the mosquitoes here are absolutely the pits, which is why we don't eat together at the campground for dinner. As soon as dusk falls, they are out in droves. And it would be a bit tight to have a group of 8 trying to eat inside the trailer!
I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and we'll see what we can into tomorrow!
