A Stop Worth Taking


As we continued our drive, we saw a sign, amused by its name we stopped not knowing what to find. Chickens maybe? Or chickens on the beach?

There is one other family aside from us who were there.

And there was a kayaker who disappeared quickly.

What kept us there were the herons and the other birds. They were so beautiful to watch as they were doing what they were doing.

It is so easy to lose track of time when you're bird watching.

  5. I know how difficult it is to take bird shots specially in flight, but you did it very well. And i love the regular parallel patterns in the water, as if longitudinal ripples.
