The receding tide at times left beautiful patterns in the sand.
The birds were gathering for their journey south to warmer quarters for the winter.
The finishing touches were being put on our beach in the way of dune fence and walkways. We

The last "big event" was the Ship Bottom anual Christmas Parade, we are usually gone by this time. Of course here the theme was about the sea as this "first aid" whale exemplified.
Beside fire engines and emergency wagons from all of the surrounding townships, there were old cars
decorated with shore themes.
Boats being pulled by cars and trucks, and this rescue Jet Ski being towed by an ATV.
Music was provided by a wide variety of group, including these Scottish bagpiper.
And how else would Santa arrive, except by boat.!!
