Persistent northeast gales

It was windy today, but the rain let up.  We didn't let the marine forecast for "persisent northeast gales" deter us.  We went for a short walk along the south side of Morris Island in Chatham, Massachusetts.  Here's the view from Morris Island looking south towards South Beach (below).  A lot of sand has shifted and things have changed quite a bit since I was last here in 2013!

We encountered a nice flock of shorebirds along the shoreline, including this Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus):

And a few juvenile Dunlin (Calidris alpina):

(With a Sanderling on the left for comparison)

 We were sad to leave Cape Cod, but we'll be back!
