Delaware shore

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences
I hope you can join in on the fun and share your fence scenes and pretty skies.

I am continuing our journey along the Delaware shore, we stopped at the Indian River inlet after leaving Bombay Hook and Prime Hook wildlife refuges and beach. The Indian River inlet is a great place to look for the seabirds and gulls.


Hubby and I getting silly with our shadow shots...at the Delaware beaches.



Another shadow shot, a pretty sky and view of the Atlantic Ocean.



There were a lot of Bonaparte's Gulls at the Indian River inlet.


A view of the bridge at the Indian River inlet.




Also seen at the Indian River inlet the Long-tailed Ducks.


More of the Long-tailed Ducks and some Surf Scoters.


It may have been a cold day but the clear blue sky made our visit worthwhile. After leaving the Indian River inlet we headed south to Ocean City, Md and our room for the night.

To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check for more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences this past year it has been fun looking for fences for my post. Also, thank you to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for doing such a great job at hosting Skywatch Friday.    I wish everyone a happy day and weekend ahead..

Very nice photos, Eileen! The shadows of you are so funny to watch :)
The Atlantic ocean goes from USA to Norway. It's a lot of water!

I wish you a nice day, and the weekend ahead!

Christine said...

Good morning Eileen! That blue sky is really exhilarating I can almost breath in the bracing Atlantic sea air! I enjoyed seeing the ducks & gulls & the bridge is a fantastic engineering feat.
Have a great day!

Such a pretty sunny day. We haven't seen the sun in weeks, but that's pretty normal for here. Loved the long-tailed ducks. Looks like you had a fun day out

Breathtaking said...

Hello Eileen!:) Your day out seemed like fun. Loved your shadow shots, they always make me smile.:) I enjoyed seeing the sea birds, fences, a great looking bridge, even a fisherman, all under a gloreous blue sky.

DeniseinVA said...

A real pretty area Eileen. I love your shadow shots and enjoyed seeing the Long-tailed Ducks, the Surf Scoters and the Gulls. The bridge is really neat too. Have a great day :)

Just beautiful, and I love the shadows in those shots. Has anyone started a bridge meme? That's such a favorite subject of mine. Love your photos.

love all the fences & shadows. very cool views. i am wondering if we will all get snowy shot soon to share. they are calling for some rough weather around here, i hate for people to have to travel in such weather, but i know it is great for the photographers camera shots & whatnot. ( :

What a great presentation of various places. Loved seeing them all. Your first photo covered both memes very well. Thanks for you loyalty in visiting me.

Nancy Chan said...

I am enjoying all your lovely photos including your shadow shots.

Andrea Ostapovitch said...

I love your silly shadow shots. They place you at the scene, and I think it's so funny how our shadows reflect so much of our personality!
I've so enjoyed seeing your coast pictures this morning. I just can't wait to head to Nova Scotia this summer!
I'm sure my blog will be overwhelmed with water shots. Or should I say "drowned in water shots"? I never was good at funny puns.

Linda W. said...

I like the shadow photos!

Giga said...

In the shadows where he sat me your lead. I saw the ocean, beautiful blue sky and birds. Regards.

Cloudia said...

Enjoyed seeing your selfies!

Mascha said...

A beautiful clear blue... and the shadowpeople make photos...
My favorite is the last picture with the tracks.
Have enjoyed your trip, have a good time

Grantham Lynn said...

What great shots. I love that beach fence. I've always wanted to live near the bench.
Loved the shadow shots. Aren't they fun.
Have a nice day. See you Saturday.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Looks like a fun day, Eileen! Love all that blue as far as the eye can see and the beautiful seabirds bobbing in the surf. So nice to have a bit of sunshine, too, to play with the shadows! Hope you have a fun weekend. x Karen

Linda said...

What a lovely and worthwhile day out, Eileen! Beautiful photos!

kayni said...

I've heard so much about the beaches in Delaware but haven't had the chance to visit yet. This sounds like a great summer trip for us. Thank you for sharing. Did you guys play slots in AC?

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann Eileen! Hope you have a nice weekend in these wonderful surroundings ;:OD)

Gemma Wiseman said...

So many stunning water views. and love the deeply etched tracks in the sands in the last photo. Quite artistic.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Well you know, it may have been cold but you it was a sunny day and you were on the beach and you weren't working. So I'll take that anytime!

Ida said...

Wow the sky is so blue (I'm jealous) and I just loved that first shot with the beach fence. Also the shot of the gulls on the water. Really neat.

carol l mckenna said...

Great fence shots ~ wonderful series of photos ~ gorgeous!

Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

The Yum List said...

Looks so peaceful.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

What a beautiful place! The clear blue sky is wonderful. After living through gray Oregon winters for so long, I still have trouble remembering that just because a sky is blue it does not mean that it is warm out. (Like when we're in Colorado for example in the winter time, it can be sunny out and still freezing!)

Michelle said...

That is quite a bridge. I like your shadow shots!

Photo Cache said...

The bridge is eyecatching.

pretty beach scenes. you can tell it was cold from how bulky your shadows were.

Debby Ray said...

These are just great, Eileen. Love the shadows!

Robin Lamb said...

Eileen, lovely images!

Cath said...

Hello Eileen....I love those beach fences. What is it about them that is so appealing? Reading between the 'shadows', can I ask? Is your partner a photographer too? It looks like you are both aiming cameras. Have a great weekend.

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Hi Eileen,
This was fun and stunning. The shadow shots were delightful!

A great collection from your tour.
Enjoyed seeing them.

Lea said...

Love the view of the bridge - Beautiful!

Liz Needle said...

Love your beach shots. The first one is interesting with the picket style fence. I wonder what is the purpose of that. I especially like the shot of the Atlantic going on forever with your shadows in the foreground.

Królowa Karo said...

Beautiful view!

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

Wonderful shots, Eileen. Must have been great at sea under that clear blue sky.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

Black Jack's Carol said...

Hi Eileen, First of all, I LOVE the shadow shots created by you and your husband. It is amazing how the fun and camaraderie between the two of you is picked up by your readers just through those shadows. Secondly, that bridge is interesting and very similar to the Port Mann Bridge that crosses the Fraser River. We don't drive over it very often any more, but it holds lots of memories from the time when Bill still had his truck. Finally, your skies are gorgeous, the fencing evocative of wind-blown dunes (especially in the first shot) and the Long-Tailed ducks are new to me. Great post, as always! Hope to see you again tomorrow.

Happyone said...

Great beach shots. Love the fence and your shadows. : )

Our photos said...

Wow, those blue skies......I am speechless !!!

Stephanie said...

It looks so beautiful, with the blue skies and sunshine. The sand so smooth. Love your shadow shots!

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, I guess if I could have it all my way, I would spend more time by the beach. These are some neat shots. A blue sky at the beach is hard to beat. Hope you have a great weekend ahead!

diane b said...

Great winter blue skies. I love walking on the beach in winter. The sea, sand and sky make nice shots.

edenhills said...

These are all great images! I do hope you stay safe with this weekend's storm.

Rose said...

LOVED seeing that blue sky! I was wondering what the temps were then seen the coat in that last shot...then you said.

Liz said...

I love all the shadow shots!

amanda | wildly simple said...

That is a really cool bridge! Love the blue skies and water.

Ana Freire said...

Another great sequence of images, which I loved...
