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

There's Something Happening Here, at the Beach
We got another early start to beat the heat, and even maybe the rain. It was mostly overcast, with no wind, and temperature in the mid to high 70s and humid.
They were out there for most of our two hour walk. Somewhere along the way, the two smaller one disappeared (moved away south or across), and eventually the big catamaran steamed up north.
Honey Badger, Skye don't care. We attacked her this week with the comb, (it takes one of us to hold her down, while the other combs), and the result was a huge pile of down, and a dog that looks much slimmer and less scruffy.
Eastern Black Swallowtail or Eastern Tiger Swallowtail black form? or maybe even a Spicebush Swallowtail?
Well, I'll leave that to the taxonomists among us.
Probability of Sea Nettles, still 100%.

I don't think the three 'vessels' are connected. One looks like a tug and the crane looks like a barge. The other ship is the USS Sea Fighter.ReplyDelete
I have no idea what it's doing but today is the third day in the area. Each night it anchors where I can see it from my recliner. :)
Looking at marinetraffic.com, you can see the track from today. It's run north and south from where you saw it up to Shady Side and back. Twice. It did essentially the same thing yesterday.
