Simple Gifts

We finally made it to the ocean on Memorial Day. The afternoon was full of gifts; I am still reveling in the memory of it.

The birds were having a rendezvous on an outcropping not too far offshore. There was apparently some good feeding going on, as they were diving constantly. The feeding frenzy invited another fisherman as well.
