Since the last visit to Little Talbot Island State Park in November, the beach has gotten torn up while it continues to erode. There is a beach restoration plan in the works and hopefully within the next few years, it will begin to get healthy again.
This fishing pole is upright with no fish on the hook. What a beautiful day at the beach! Located at Little Talbot Island State Park in Jacksonville, Florida.
we decided to head over to the Canaveral National Seashore for a last look for birds.
My happy place is being outside in nature with my hubby, Frank! I’m also happy when I’m with my kids and grandkids but haven’t seen 2 of my 3 kids and none of my grandkids since January of this year due to the pandemic. I get to Facetime with them, but that is it. So for this challenge, I will stick to what I do when I can’t be with them physically.
This large piece of driftwood was found on the beach a couple of weeks ago. I have to wonder what woodpecker pecked all these holes. It was too large to move so I straddled it to get a shot. I’m sure this old tree could tell some stories!
Owls are nocturnal meaning they are mostly active at night. There are two species that are truly diurnal (meaning they are active both day and night). They are the Northern Hawk Owl and the Northern Pygmy Owl.
This was someone else’s setup as we trucked down the beach with our own beach cart packed with lunch, chairs, umbrellas and our packs that carry our camera & stuff. I actually got in the water on October 1st! What? Yep…sure did! It was just a little chillier than the last time I had gotten in. Didn’t stay in there long!
I think everyone has seen a seagull at some point in their lives. They are not just a coastal species, they are inland as well. Generally, they don’t venture out to sea, except the kittiwakes. They are closely related to the terns and distantly related to auks, skimmers and other waders. They range is size of 11 1/2″ to 30″ and all basically have the same shape.
On this day, Black Skimmers were going up and down the shoreline scooping up any small fish within their grasp.
