A week at the Shore

Between the holiday and going away, been a little lagging with my posts. I have to post my Independence Day Challenge photos, when I get a second to photograph them. We are in Sea Isle City, NJ. My sister and mom rented a house and asked us to come down. The house is right on the back bays, over looking the salt marsh. I love the the's a sea of green. We went down to Townsend's Inlet (top photo) to hang out because it was hot and we could sit in the shade of the bridge. While we were down there, a Laughing Gull strolled by. They are little beggars and they have a loud laughing call, but I missed the little feather brains, we don't have these guys on Long Island. I had a bit of a tough time getting his picture because he wouldn't hold still and I was using my IPhone camera. As my grandmother would say, they are "comical."


  1. i've never seen or heard of a laughing gull- is that really what they're called? well, sounds like the name suits him! :)

  2. You can read more about them at this link, and listen to their call:
