It has been an easy going day all day. Excitement was somewhere else. Down at the beach was a chance for a new header picture. It turned out nice didn’t it?
A bit north of the header picture was this family having a good time with a large kite. When it got up into the stronger breeze the flyer of the kite was getting jerked around a lot.
The shade shelters made of reeds are nice. One reader wanted to see how they are made so here is a picture of the frame on the underside of the reeds.
During the evenings walk along the beach so things caught my eye. A couple of orange beads that are used on fishing leaders to help catch fishermen’s money were lying around all alone. Then on down a ways was a popping cork just sitting there in the sand waiting for an OFM to pick it up to recycle in his gear. But the real excitement was a single butterfly flitting around in the strong breeze. My attempts to capture it in a picture while in flight were not successful. The closest that it got to success is this one just as the flutterby landed on a flower. It rested there for a good while.
There are a lot of fresh birds here in town lately. Apparently a migration of some sort is in progress. Birding is not one of my thrills. Some birds I just get a kick out of watching. The wading shoreline birds are usually good for a laugh or two. This curlew was really high stepping across the sand as the picture was taken.
That pretty well sums up my day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
