Now that we have been back on long Beach Island for 3 weeks and we are settled in for the spring at least, I though it was time to add to my blog.  My flowers are planted, and neighbors are returning from Florida, and we have had several beach walks.

 Taking off the first time, we could hardly see the ocean from the dunes, the fog was so thick.

We thought we were totally alone until we barely saw a fellow beach stroller coming out of the mist.

But this "castles" in the sand were evidence that children at least had been there that morning.

And we finally can upon 2 fishermen who had cast their lines into the mist in hope of snaring the "big one".

 Several days later the fog had lifted enough that a stand up paddle boarder was enjoying the waves.

Beach replenishment had begun in the community to the south of us, and this fisherman sat near the water's edge with his poles, while the dredge remained further out awaiting it next supply of sand.

Our next beach walk was enjoyed in sunshine, with a still pretty much deserted beach, and delightful change from what it will be like in another month.

At This time it is still left the the local fisherman seeking this best fishing spot, and walked like us who can still enjoy the solitude and peacefulness of the ocean's edge.

The rocks covered the moss gleamed in the sunshine as a warning not to try to scale their slippery surface.

Memorial day weekend has come and gone and we were blessed with beautiful weather, a bit cool and windy but with blue sky and sunshine. A visit of the replicas of the Nina and Pinta at the Viking Village was a special attraction for the locals and visitors who were on our island.
