A Week at the Jersey Shore

We got back on Saturday from an amazing week in south Jersey.

The beach at 8AM was pretty empty.

I had some amazing, flat bike rides around gorgeous swamps.  The only hills down there are the bridges.  Gulls, herons, and egrets were everywhere.

We used to use this type of fencing to stop snow in Iowa.  I like these drifts better.

Tenacious dune grass.

Cross section of a dune.
Swampy bird sanctuary in Stone Harbor, NJ.  That chartreuse green in the mid-ground is a sedge I think.
