Finally Made it to the Beach Today

It has been so cold and windy lately that I haven't really felt like going to the beach. It got up to 70 today but there was still a chilly wind. I decided to go anyway and see if there were any shells. I went to Access #6. Lots of others had the same idea today and trying to get a parking spot in one of the Access parking lots was tough! But the beach wasn't all that crowded for some reason.

This guy must have thought I looked familiar because he walked right up to me. Maybe he just wanted his picture taken.This gorgeous White Ibis was showing off his gorgeous red beak and legs.
Of course, the advertising plane for Miromar Outlet Mall was doing his thing.
And the Thriller was doing it's thing thrilling people.
There were a few shells but not a whole lot of what I was looking for.
Don't ya love my new shelling shoes?
I was glad that I had my jacket with me because it did get chilly when the wind kicked up. It was great to finally get back to the beach--and I did bring home a few keepers.

Nice! We had our third straight weekend of rain! I am enjoying stomping around in my new big boots, though. We will have beach weather soon, though. For now, I am loving the green. Glad you had a nice day!

I'd settle for 70 right about now. I think that little guy was a stalker.

Some nice shells found today. I'm wishing I was there...... But of course, it's raining here in Sunny Arizona!!
