Tall sea pines, low grasses, and stone drives.
The boardwalk leads you over the marsh to the beach. You always see a few egrets and other marsh birds.
There are a few pools, but the one by the ocean is my favorite.
Kayaking is so peaceful. We explored around Broad Creek for a few hours on Monday.
Spied this egret but this was as close as I could get before she got impatient with us and took off.
Meanwhile, the pelicans don't care how close you come.
The last day was foggy and overcast but warm. I love the sun, but I love these kinds of days on the beach too. There's a standup paddle-boarder out there in a wetsuit, and a ship beyond.
Finally, my parents. (Check out my dad's fancy new camera! Can't wait to see what kind of shots he got.) Thanks again, Mom and Dad, for a fantastic visit! We had a wonderful time, and wish we were still there! But it's so nice to know we'll be able to meet back at the same place next year and the year after that and the year after that...
