It's Freezing on the Beach!!!

I know I've been bad about posting lately, but that's because it's been too cold for photos and I want to save the text posts for my trip to Delaware next week...

I did get out to the beach today at Perdido and it was COLD! I let Cathy take a photo of me in my three jackets, sweatshirt and three pairs of pants. I could hardly move, but it was still too cold for my taste. And yes, Mom, I wore a hat (well two hoods and a balaclava and ear muffs). Delaware will be tough!

There were very few birds, and I didn't take any photos of them, though I did catch Cathy, a park VIP who finally admits it was 'a bit chilly'. Check out her chilly outfit -- I'd hate to see what she wears when she thinks it's cold!

The wind was the real culprit on the beach, so we stopped from time to time to catch our breath, and Cathy searched for shells.

There were great contrasts in size,

of both shells and crab claws,

and color.

It may not have been on my 'to do' list, but it was still fun! Now I just need to thaw out a bit :)

Fun photos of shell piles. That's good treasure hunting. And its the wind chill that really does it ... on the open beach it probably drops it a good 10 degrees. But I'd have the check the math on that.
