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

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

    ReplyDelete
  22. 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

  39. Looks like a great trip, Eileen. Lovely photos.

  40. 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 !!

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