There was literally no one else on the beach on Friday afternoon. We let the dogs Roo and Kasey run loose to enjoy the waves. Kasey did not do so well. First she took off after a seagull, and ran right up over the dunes and through people's back yards. Then she took off after one on the beach, and ran like a rocket. I expected maybe we could pick her up in Wilmington. Fortunately, she came back and stayed on the leash after that.
It rained a little when we got back. Then, surprisingly, it quit raining. We all went out to the beach for a few hours, although it was cool and very gusty. It was a nice surprise to be able to enjoy the beach.
I like it when the water and beach turn all silvery in the morning sun.
They have roped off all the dunes at the very end of the island as it is time for birds to be nesting.
Kasey and I walked around the point and viewed the island from the bay side. Hundreds of birds were lined up on the sandbar.
