Another Day, Another Beach Walk

Another Memorial Weekend day, another beach walk. It's a bit on the warm side today, 86 when Skye and I left the house at 10:30 AM.

We found this American Eel panting for air in the harbor on the way by. We don't see that many eels these days, having been fished into threatened status.
 And this giant dandelion head (actually a Salsify or Goatsbeard, or Tragopogon) in the dunes, another invasive species.
Given the weather, how could the beach be anything but well used today?
 But walk a little further, and the crowds dissipate.

A Eastern Prickly Pear Cactus also blooming in the dunes. Shockingly, a species native to the area. Not all cacti are desert dwellers.
