Today's Walk On The Beach
« on: June 24, 2014, 03:16:54 PM »
Had the chance to get out for a little while today.  In addition to getting out, I wanted to try out the new whoopie slings and soft shackle I made (thanks for the tutorial Ron).  I went to Big Talbot Island State Park. 














































Now admittedly, I'm not in the best shape........and it was hot.......but this is ridiculous.

Your camera work is as always awesome Dave. Is Big Talbot Island on the north end of Jax Beach?

Looks like a great day to be out- I got a kick out of your buzzard comment, that was funny!

I think it's about the 14th pic, but you can almost see a topo map in the wood if you look at it just right.  I could also see a croc head and an elephant eye too- I really like your pic posts!!!

Do you know what kind of gulls those are, Crash?   The reason I ask is, we have two variations here that look much like those in your photos.......Frankl in's and Bonaparte's.   They commonly follow me through the field in the Spring in large flocks waiting for the disc or field cultivator to uncover grubs, worms, mice, etc.    I get eyeball to eyeball with them when they're flying at close range. :shocked:

Great pics, as usual, cd.  Driftwood certainly can be beautiful, can't it?

Big Talbot is a bit further north.  The area I was in was real close to the bridge that crosses Nassau Sound.  http://www.bing.com/maps/default.aspx?encType=1&where1=Big+Talbot+Island+State+Park%2c+Florida&cp=30.4797325134277~-81.4409408569336&qpvt=big+talbot+island+map&FORM=MIRE

I'm not 100% certain, but I think they are Laughing Gulls.

Probably saw the vultures following me.

Great pics Crash glad to see you got out.

Did you get any animal pics from your hammock? Boy you made a mess load of them soft shackles. I think you are getting addicted to amsteel.

How did the hammock, woopies and soft shackles work out for you? I always enjoy a pic from a hammock.

Thanks for the reply and clearing that up for me.  I looked up "Laughing Gulls" and found this.....

If you scroll down, you can see a 'sidebar' that has a list of the look-a-likes and see why I was wondering? :P

Looks like a nice walk; reminds me of walking along the local riverbank.

And you found a vulture tree.  I see those now and then while driving, usually an old, dead tree hung with idle buzzards and looking like something growing beside the Addam's Family mansion.  Cool.
