Another beautiful weekend and of course the perfect weekend for paddling. Saturday was cooler, so we did a river paddle. Except for a few people passing by, we had the river to ourselves and the critters who crossed our path. We saw a beaver, a blue heron, hawks and lots of turtles but nothing that would sit still long enough for a photo.
The river is long and winding and passes under several roads and railroad bridges. This is an old trestle bridge.
The blueberry bushes are all empty but their are grapevines lining the river.
Sunday was warmer so we went to the salt water marsh and paddled out to the breakers. We bought our umbrella and just enjoyed sitting on the beach.
We had our own little spot to sit and cool down in the water while we watched the boats go by.
The ocean is just over the dunes, a perfect place to walk around and enjoy the cool breezes.
On the way back, we passed this guy. I am glad I didn't meet him while we were swimming in the water. It is called a Lion's Mane jellyfish and they can grow up to 120 feet long with their tentacles.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, as well.
