Halloween Beach Report

Skye and I left home for the beach around 12:30 PM. It's mostly cloudy and cool today, about 50 F. There was a flock of Eastern Bluebirds on the street adjacent to the boat yard, and in the yard itself. The male:
And the female.
I found this Common Buckeye in the sand dunes in front of the beach. They're one of the last butterflies to disappear in fall; I've even seen one when there was frost on the ground.
A pretty high tide, and a lot of leaf debris meant lousy fossil hunting; we ended up with only six teeth and a crab claw.
A long distance, and a little "heat shimmer" makes the flag hard to read today.
A big boy leaving the Gas Docks. Keep on fracking!
