Eagles and Moths at the Beach

 I'll start off this beach report with a Bald Eagle sighting.  They've been a little scarcer this year than they have in past years, so this was a little unusual.
It's hot here. 85 in the shade on the beach, although the home thermometer claims 90. There was a 10 kt south wind at the beach, which help considerably. Still warm for a snow loving dog, and we stopped in the shade a few times.
We're experiencing bout of red or mahogany tide. It's thick enough that you can actually smell it.
 A Luna Moth that blundered into the yucky water.
 Let's hurry back to the air conditioned car!
The red tide can really gather in the lee of the jetty thick enough that you can swirls in it.
