November Beaches, Part 4.

Let's go back to Seven Mile Island (Avalon and Stone Harbor)... Click on 'em to bigify photos.

Thousands of shorebirds (mostly Dunlin, a few Black-bellied Plovers, and at least one Ruddy Turnstone) amassing on the beaches in Avalon... See that squarish shadow on the horizon to the right? That's Atlantic City, about 40 or so miles north.

A lovely day for a sail!

Dunlin. (Why are my best shots entirely due to pure luck...?)

 Very quiet surf this day, but still enough to kick up a bit of froth.
And to make interesting patterns in the sand...

(Along with some help from a few of those peeps...)
