When we drove to the Jersey shore, we just stopped at the first beach we came upon. As it so happens, there was construction taking up most of the beach. We skirted around to get to the water, but many of my photos have the tell-tale bright orange marking the construction zone. Made for a few interesting shots:
I like the tracks in the sand.
And the fluttering orange flags.
Here's a large flock of shore birds I couldn't get a very good photo of... but the birds behind the "keep out" sign is pretty great. And so are the soaring birds:
I wish we could have spent more time seeking out different beaches, comparing the rocks & shells collected from each one.
But I'm really glad I can finally say I've seen the ocean!
I have a few more sets of photos from the coast to show you, but I'll keep them in draft mode for those days when I'm at a loss for time or words. I will try to get them up sooner rather than later though - I need the motivation to continue taking more pictures!
(Are you ready for it to be December tomorrow? I'm not!)
