One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.

Boxing Day at the Beach
We hadn't made it down to the beach for a few day, but with bright sun, no wind and 50 F temperatures, we made it down there around noon, after Alex and Kelly left for their 6 hour drive home. When we arrived there were quite a number of other families taking advantage of the great weather
The tide was almost dead low when we arrived, and we hoped for a good fossil hunting day. Georgia found this large "Mako" shark's tooth (really a relation to the Great White shark), the second largest of the year, but otherwise it was not a great day, only 5 teeth total.
A large raft of Buffleheads just off the shore
A good day for boating. These duck hunters were just coming back to the boat ramp at Calvert Beach. They can't hunt just anywhere; they have to stay in sites that are registered with the state, and highly sought.
Cruising back to the harbor
And the rowing guy, who never seems to take a day off.
