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

Birds Busting Bait off the Beach
Yet another pretty nice fall morning at the beach. Temperatures are in the mid to upper 50s, the wind is 5-10 NW (which gives us a little cover) and the skies are clear.
The first thing I noticed when we got down on the beach was this flock of birds diving on some kind of bait, most likely bait pushed to the surface by predators, stripers or blues. We haven't seen this scene too many times this year.
Some fossil snail shell embedded in the clay cliff. It was a terrible day for finding fossils otherwise; just two small shark's teeth, and one drum's tooth.
With the bait ball dispersed (or eaten), the birds went back to waiting on the jetty.
