  4. Wow, beautiful photos! I love it. I'm from Southern California and I miss the beach so much, and you're right, the best time of the year to go to the beach is fall.

  7. Beach shots always make this inlander insanely jealous!. Still I appreciate your reminding me the ocean is still there. Great bird pics. The black skimmer was a new one to me too.

  9. Wonderful, Debbie. I can see why you love the beach so much.

    Those black skimmers sure have unusual bills. Must be good for eating fish? :)

  13. Fabulous bird shots! I don't know how you got such sharp focus on those. I've never seen a skimmer - thanks for sharing that one, in particular.

  14. Beautiful Debbie! Some of these look like paintings. Fall is my favorite time to beach visit as well. That's why we have school days there...:0

  17. Ban the words "too much" from your vocabulary!! There's never too much when you're clicking away Debbie :D)

    Fabulous photos - and in amongst them you pop Chuck's footprints. Love your sense of humour!

    If there has to be a favourite, I love the one of the Sanderlings seemingly marching in unison.
