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..

  2. 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!

  17. 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. ( :

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

  32. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  34. A beautiful clear blue... and the shadowpeople make photos...

  36. 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

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

  43. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  44. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great fence shots ~ wonderful series of photos ~ gorgeous!

    Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

  46. 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!)

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  49. These are just great, Eileen. Love the shadows!

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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.

  51. Hi Eileen,

  55. 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.

    ReplyDelete

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

  70. 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.

  74. 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!

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