Happy Thankful Thursday!
I am thankful for some warm sunny days. 😊 I am thankful and appreciate the beauty around me.
Ignoring the chances of catching the virus on March 8-10 hubby and I decided to take a short trip. We went to the Delaware Shore and Ocean City Md. We waited for months (Jan & Feb) for the weather to be just right for our getaway. We visited Bombay Hook Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, Delaware's Indian River Inlet seaside park, Ocean City, Assateague Island Nat'l Seashore and last but not least the Blackwater Nat'l Wildlife Refuge in Cambridge Md.

I felt lucky to find this one Sandhill Crane at Bombay Hook NWR. It was standing not far off from a Great Blue Heron.
Me and my shadow, surfers in the distance. Temps in the mid 50's to low 60's and windy.
We saw a lot of the Long-tailed Ducks at the Indian River Inlet.

I am thankful for a great getaway, walks on the beaches and watching the birds. Fingers crossed hubby and I do not get the virus. Take care and I hope everyone is well. May good health envelope you!
I am thankful for my reading time and books.
