Assateague sky

It's time for some of my favorites memes Skywatch Friday and  NF Winged and Watery Wednesday II.

These are some shots from our visit to the beach and to  Assateague Island National Seashore. After spending time In Ocean City and Delaware's Indian River Inlet we headed to Assateague so we could watch the sunset.







Ruddy Turnstones at the Indian River inlet.


Sunset at Assateague Island.


A pretty orange reflection.


After the sun had set, the sky was still filled with beautiful colors.



To see more beautiful photos and pretty skies please visit Skywatch Friday
and to see more of the winged critters check out NF Winged
And for some watery scenes check out Tricia's Watery Wednesday II

Ooooo I don't know Eileen, looks like Chemtrails. Kidding

Actually I miss seeing high clouds. We don't get them much here because the clouds we get are low and loaded with continuous not stop rain. Man, I'm tired of rain and cold.

Those pictures are beautiful though. Going to California in April. Don't want to go now because I want it warm to hot when I get there.
