The Point Pleasant Inlet

It is a pathway for boats to and from the Atlantic Ocean...
It is the place the hubs and I went on our first date...
It suffered a lot of damage during 
Super Storm Sandy

But the town has rebuilt the surrounding area making it better than ever.
Everything pictured here is new and I can't wait for summer to see everyone enjoying it.
There are so many picnic tables and benches, 
all are wonderful improvements to the area.







There were a lot of the Long Tailed Ducks on this day.
They are so incredibly adorable, a diving duck associated with open seas in winter.
This is a male, I saw and photographed some females as well, 
I'm saving those pictures for the Saturday Critter Party.
I have learned just this year, 
that there are a lot of beautiful ducks that visit and stay here during the Winter.
This is another of the ducks that will only be here for the season.

  17. Oh Debbie, this looks like such a lovely area and I am happy that they have rebuilt it for you to be able to enjoy. It would be an especially sweet place because you had your first date there.
    It kind of reminds me that I have great hope that they will rebuild Paradise, California because I we lived there and bought our first home there. I would love to go back and see it again. I feel so sad to know that our first home was distroyed by the fire. I can empathize over the destruction in your area..
    I really enjoyed these photos and the bird is a lovely one.
    Sending loving thoughts, hugs and blessings your way!
