A few days ago Jeff and I had a late start to our daily walk so we decided to try a different loop …
Instead of doing the 5 mile walk to the jetty and back we thought since it was low tide we would see what birds were hanging out at the causeway…we would walk to the jetty from there and loop back to the campground catching the setting sun.
The causeway is a short half mile walk from the campground.
Huntington Beach State Park..
A nice mix of Snowy Egret and White Ibis
The shells in the photos are oysters..
Immature White Ibis
Walking off the boardwalk I spotted the outline of a Volkswagen Beetle sticking out of the grass..
I was wondering why they didn’t remove it..
ha ha..that’s why!
Sure fooled me!
We left the Nature Center and walked to the north parking lot and onto the beach for the 1.5 mile walk North Beach to the jetty.
I stopped to pull a Valentines balloon out of the surf…
this day we come across many starfish.
We then walked to the west end of the jetty onto the inland beach.. to look for shorebirds..
Short-billed Dowitcher and Dunlin..
It was not a colorful sunset..but it was lovely..
Does anyone know what causes this, or what it is called?
A deer greats us..
I find the final photo of the day..
