Forsythe Birds

Shorebird migration appears to be on.

Cloudy Long Island Beaches

It rained on and off during the morning while we there at Gilgo, Captree, Jones and Robert Moses. I didn’t see many shorebirds. It was fun watching the terns fish and squabble. It’s been ages since I went to the shore and we enjoyed the trip and picnic.

The clouds add atmosphere. I love processing the RAW images in Lightroom to reveal what I saw that the camera could not capture. It’s like magic. The last two are by Marc.

E B Forsythe NWR

We visited E. B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Atlantic County, New Jersey, for a couple of hours before viewing a house for sale nearby.

Jamaica Bay

We have a new car, a 2019 VW Jetta. I named it James in honor of my mother (her maiden name). We plan to look for a less expensive place to live in a more rural area, or find a summer place, and need a car to do so.

Meanwhile, we are having fun going to places we have trouble visiting. This trip was to Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, NY.
