Happy Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, wishing everyone a happy day!

These are more images from our overnight trip to Maryland's Western Shore. July 9-10th we drove to the Point Lookout State Park in Scotland Maryland to watch the sunset.  Point Lookout is located where the Potomac River meets the Chesapeake Bay. The Lighthouse is being renovated, it is surrounded by a chain link fence, not a pretty picture. The sunset was gorgeous, lots of Brown Pelicans flying by. 






A dark and distant look at some Herons and Pelicans perched and near the shore.

I am thankful to be able to view a gorgeous sunset.

I am thankful for all your visits and comments.

That golden sky sure makes a beautiful background for your photos! WOW! Love those pelicans! Enjoy your day! (we hiked at dusk last night just to see what it would be like...it was humid without a hint of breeze so it felt even hotter! But we tried it! lol)
