The weather the past week or so has been rainy, cloudy, and so windy. Yesterday was 25+ mph winds with higher gusts.
We decided to have a little “car picnic” at Boat Meadow Beach just to get out of the house for a while. It was high tide and the waves were rolling in, and the rain had stopped for a bit. And then, for a split second, the sun came out and shown brightly on the crest of the waves. It was so pretty!
It was fun to watch this Great Blue Heron stalk his prey and then enjoy his meal at Boat Meadow Beach. I really like the mooring in the background.
We took a ride to Boat Meadow a little while ago and were so surprised to see the tide so high. It even looked higher than a couple of days ago. There was no beach to walk on and the point where you walk out on the path to get to Rock Harbor was totally under water, as you can see in the distance. I’ve never seen that before. Wow!
It was low tide and there were a lot of birds at Boat Meadow Beach. Many were seagulls but you could see other species in the distance, although they were too hard to identify.
The fishing nearby must be good…
I’ve never seen a seal at Boat Meadow Beach, so I was very surprised when I looked out at high tide on Wednesday morning and saw three seals swimming about. They stayed for quite a while. I wonder if the high, high tide had brought them in closer to shore. I hope they left before low tide came…
And then yesterday morning, they were back again at high tide, swimming around by Boat Meadow.
Have you ever seen a seal at Boat Meadow Beach?
