wet and windy

Today's weather was wet, windy, and a bit chilly with temperatures hovering in the mid-40s for much of the day. Before my volunteer time in the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge this afternoon, I headed to the refuge for a wet walk, starting on the inland side of the refuge.

While the beach in the refuge is closed for the piping plover nesting season I was able to walk to the sand north of the closure point and look to the south. It was almost high tide, and the ocean was quite active.

I feel a sense of calm whenever I visit the refuge.
