More from Nags Nead

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  

We were in Nags Head, North Carolina from Nov 29 to Dec 3rd.. So we saw a few sunrises and sunsets and lots of birds..  I hope you enjoy the scenes from our trip!


Sunrise on the beach outside our Nags Head hotel.


Four Tundra Swans flying over the Pea Island NWR.


The lookout at the Bodie Island Lighthouse park..and a pretty blue sky. I thought the fence rails would be a good shot for my Good Fence post.


Here is an American Pipit seen on the grass area outside the Pea Island NWR visitor center.


They mean it, keep off the dunes..another fence scene for Tex's Good Fence.


A Ruddy Turnstone on the beach..Outer Banks, North Carolina...


And here is one more fence scene and a long boardwalk to the beach and over the dunes..


A pretty blue sky and a beautiful day to be at the beach...


A pretty skywatch...sunset at Nags Head..heading back to our hotel..I liked the tree silhouettes and colors in the shot above.



A view of the moon after the sunset..  Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comments..

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.
