So, today I discovered that the soundside boardwalk goes WAY further south that I had known and I walked the whole bit and it was lovely. About 2 miles when all was said and done.
Got lots of reference shots of things I’ll likely never draw, and a great shot of a willet or heron. Still no idea which it may be.
Same bird, different angle of the sun:
Then I got myself a frosty beer, which was excellent and people watched for a while in the breeze. The ice cream shop wasn’t open yet, so I went for the next best thing, an iced Mucky Duck, which is milk and espresso and chocolate, caramel, and hazelnut syrup. YUM.
And then I parked myself on the screened porch.
