Plum Island afternoon

I haven't been to Plum Island since March 31st, the last day the beach at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge was open. It's a piping plover nesting area; the beach closes each year on April 1st and reopens when the birds are finished with it.

Even though I knew I wouldn't be able to walk on my favorite beach, I headed to Plum Island for a bit of a wander. I walked across the bridge and crossed the very narrow island for a glimpse of the ocean, absorbing the beauty around me.
