This photo shows pelicans skimming the waves off shore on Seabrook Island. A little googling finds articles that indicate “Skimming permits the birds to take advantage of an aerodynamic phenomenon known as ground effect”.
It is always good to have something to look forward to; so today I share a photo of one of the pools on Seabrook Island. Naturally the pool is closed due to the pandemic. But next summer we will enjoy the pool.
Flying a kite is a past time which I personally enjoy. So; please understand that when I suggest a certain someone should go fly a kite, I am wishing him will in his next past time and encouraging him to move along.
Today’s photo was taken from the northern most point of the beach on Seabrook Island. If you look closely you see water on three sides of the photo. There was also water behind me when I took the photo. Actually the beach is L shaped and you have a beach path.
While walking to north beach I took this photo of a flock of seagulls. In this is area, of the beach, fish often are shoaling or schooling. It is common to see dolphins and sea gulls waiting for a meal
Yesterday we saw this windy buggy on the beach. While Googling the subject I found several names; Landsailer, Kite Buggy, Blowcard, Trike Buggy, Land Yacht Tricycle, Landsegler, Strandsegler, and Zooter.
Interestingly the person sailing has long sleeves, cloves, mask, goggles, and helmet. I assume because of blowing sand.
During a stroll on the beach we enjoyed watching this young boy skimboarding on his boogie board. The skill and balance where impressive. I tried smimboarding many years ago and never mastered the balance needed.
