Clam Tides

Early morning clam diggers

It was a cool clear morning when I arrived at the beach for an early morning hike through the dunes.  I was surprised to find more than a dozen cars in the parking lot.  Even in the middle of the summer, the lot would be deserted at 6 AM.  As I crested the dunes, I realized that today's the low tide offered near perfect conditions for clam digging.  I was astonished to see just how far the water had receded.  I have never seen this area of the beach high and dry!

I awoke this morning at four-thirty and decided to try and catch the sun rising over the river.  Upon my arrival at the park, I was greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes whose appetite could only be described as voracious.  

It's been over a month since my last visit to the park, so I was determined to "out last" the blood suckers and enjoy the sunrise!  

Besides numerous mosquito bites, I came home with a few images.
