A peaceful place to walk, the beach at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, as the tide is going out...

This is a time of year when I try to visit Parker River on a somewhat regular basis. The beach on Plum Island is a nesting area for the endangered piping plovers and least terns. The refuge is open year round, but the beach closes to human access on April 1st each year, reopening when the birds are done with it.
