Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, wishing everyone a great day! 

Slowly making my way back into blogland. 
I am sharing our trip to the Delaware and Maryland beaches on Feb 13-15. I have some photos of the beach and bridge at the Indian River Inlet State Park in Delaware. 








A distant photo with a  few Common Loons hanging around the beach and inlet.



A Loon and a female Merganser.



I hope you enjoyed my sky photos and the birds seen at the shore.



I am thankful for having our power turned back on after a windstorm. It was out from the morning of March 2nd to the evening of March 6th.
Thanks to all the linemen and power company workers. 
I am thankful for all your visits and comments. 


Thank you Michelle for hosting. Thankful Thursday
Thank you to the hosts of   Skywatch Friday


Thanks so much for visiting and for your nice comments on my previous post. Have a happy day!

I am so glad your power is back on Eileen that would have been very trying... I love the bridge photo with all the lines against the sky backdrop:)

Such picturesque beach scenes, Eileen and great shots of the merganser!
That was a long time to be without power so I'm sure you are really grateful that it has been restored!
Have a lovely day!

Beautiful and peaceful beach front and pretty sky views! Nice bird watching and I enjoyed the last photo.

Good that you’re back to normal with turned power and the storm seems to be heaver to last long

Take care

Good Morning, Eileen. Beautiful photos. It is miserable to be without power. I, too, am thankful for those who brave the elements to restore power. Have a good day.

We got as far as Penn's Landing, Eileen, when we were in Philadelphia some years ago. I guess these wonderful beaches may not have been too far away...

How very peaceful on the beach! Nice to have such a quiet time on the beach! Thank you!

Jeanie said...

You must be very thankful for blue skies! Glad your power is back. That sounded grim.

Sandra said...

Having the power back on after that long would be at the very top of my thankful list and I'm thankful that you've got yours back. It had to be awful. The longest period of time I've ever been without power is 3 days

Jo said...

oh wow, Eileen, what a treat to see you here. And what beautiful beach images; the shadow one and the bridge. In fact, every single photo is beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Jo

Lady Fi said...

What blue-tiful skies! Lovely.

Nancy J said...

Power, these days everything uses it and we are lost without it. The bridge photo, how about entering it in a competition? A winner by a mile or more.

Country Gal said...

Great shots.

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Your shadow shots always make me smile!! That style of bridge is so photogenic. Beautiful shot!

Michelle said...

That bridge is exceptional! Glad you have power back on. We have had that situation before and you never realize how much you rely on electricity, until you don't have it. Thanks for linking up today!

Sondra said...

Love the bridge photo...really a great shot. Nice to see the beach and the birds, and I know you are happy to have electric back on, it's hard to do without! Have a great weekend!

ellen b. said...

Looks like a great trip, Eileen. Lovely photos.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You two are so tall ;>)!! I'm glad you got that beautiful beach trip in before the nasty March weather hit! It was really lovely there back then. There's nothing so good for the spirit as walking on a beach!
But what a nasty storm March brought -- I kept reading the news and thinking of all my blog friends 'up North' -- that was a long time for your electricity to be off! I'm glad it is back on and you had no lasting ill effects. And I'm glad you're back getting comments again, so I can tell you that !!

krishna said...

Beautiful pictures.. Love the picture of the bridge..

Lynne said...

Happy you are back with power . . .
Liked the little loon, wonder where the partner was . . .

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Beautiful shots, It has been decades since I have walked a beach in the winter and I miss it.

Amy Franks said...

That's a lovely beach, hard to believe the bridge comes out onto the sand.

Small City Scenes said...

I enjoyed your beachy pics. We often have Mergansers visit our pond for a day or two and then off they go. Awesome bridge

That is a long time to be without power, but I think you had your generator available to help you out?
