This is the beach right out in front of my campsite. Since this is Saturday, there are a lot more people here than during the week when it was foggy and rainy.
I think this is some kind of plover. Not sure.
These birds have a very long beak which is slightly curved downward. They are dunlins.
More shorebirds. The ones in front are ruddy turnstones.
This is sand blackberry.
And this is fire wheel, aka Indian blanket
This one took a long time to find, but I am 99% sure it is blue gilliam, aka blue bowls.
After walking almost two miles, I was very glad to get back home. Got homemade chicken noodle soup on the stove, and looking forward to driving down to Padre Island tomorrow.
