The end of a lovely birthday at the beach this past summer.

Nice effective use of the sun and the grass leaves' silhouette.

Aloha

It is a nice sunset photo but is that all it has to offer. If you are trying to tell people about this place and why they go there, you need to show something that makes the island special. A bunch of grass silhouetted against the sunset tells nothing. That picture could have been shot just about anywhere in the world.

Thanks, Cal and Selvin.

Cal, I guess maybe I should have noted it as being the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. It is on a portion of Plum Island in Massachusetts. The sea grass is about the only feature in the refuge this time of year as a lot of it is corded off for piper plover nesting. Only first beach and the tip of the island were open that day. And, the tip only has parking for seven.

Besides the sand, grass and marsh the only thing it has are the, I believe, 6 parking areas to access the beach over the dunes, two observation towers and a restroom/gatehouse.The parking areas hold about 10 cars each. The road traveling the length of the refuge is barely two cars wide and dirt a lot of the way. The refuge only allows a certain number of cars in at a time. So, if you plan to spend the day at the beach you must arrive very early in the morning. Or, go late in the day after the sunbathers have gone. That's when we usually go. For night sea fishing and/or a picnic. That particular night we were attacked by sand fleas as the sun started setting and packed up quickly and left.

Here is a link to a map of the island http://www.fws.gov/northeast/parkerriver/largemap.html

I'll look and see if I have any photos of the seagulls or swans from that day and do another one. We tend tobe there when the waves aren't doing much of anything.
