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

Welcome to Summer at the Beach
According to the intertubes, Summer of 2014 starts with the summer solstice, at 6:51 EDT, so I'm jumping the gun just a hair.
After some rain overnight, we had a cool (73 F), cloudy day for the opening day of our hot season. I'll take it!
Otherwise, it was a pretty unremarkable walk. The Bay was stirred up and dirty from an east wind, and teeth were hard to find, although we managed 13, mostly in one spot where a stream created a nice flat area with a sprinkling of shell hash (and teeth).
Also, a new (for the year) butterfly in the sand dunes, this Common Buckeye (Junonia coenia). I think it's one of our most attractive butterflies, although subtler than some.
