Since I live in Florida and our state parks have opened back up, I thought I would share my photos from yesterday’s beach fun at Little Talbot Island State Park. They are open at a 50% capacity which has been reaching maximum capacity by 10am on the weekends. This is the second Saturday we have driven out there and the same thing has occurred. Even though people are not 100% back to work, it is a holiday weekend and the amount of vehicles and people showing up was a testament to that fact. We got there at 9:15 and the park was packed by our standards.
I got my first decent shot of a Sanderling yesterday. I’ve been trying to get a good shot of this fast-paced little bird for 20 years. I finally got close to one that was scurrying about and clicked a few pictures. The Laughing Gull showed up when we started getting our lunch out. GO FIGURE!
There were many people out there fishing. We talked to one guy who had brought in two Pompano and I asked him what time was dinner? That is some good eating fish. Frank kept the umbrellas moving to keep us in the shade. We have a large beach umbrella but it doesn’t fit in the Prius very well so we MacGyvered it with our two rain umbrellas.
