I just loved this scene, I just counted and I took 15 variants



Close by in time and space



One of the salt marshes much loved by the birds

saltmarsh becomes tidal mangrove




There is old machinery rusting everywhere

Thanks Mark. It is a superb area for birds, unfortunately teh national park people do not let you get onto teh salt marsh itself and so the birds are too far away even with teh Tcon.

A nice place to visit and photograph. That tire swing helps make the first shot memorable. All those shots you have, do any include swingers?

Steve, thanks. No, none include swingers. It WOULD have made for a nice pciture but the wife was not game. The whole island has a population of 80, and there were probably the same number of visitors over the whole weekend, with only about 10 overnighters. At the lodge where we stayed there were 4 people and no kids so the swing stayed swingerless. In fact the state school only has 5 kids as the high schoolers travel to the mainland. The population of humans is probably surpassed by each species of animal on the island with the exception of the endangered orange bellied parrot.
