This evening we went to a beach access on the east end of the island. The temperature was just right, at that time, around 74. Seemed to be a nice time for a beach walk.
There were LOTS of tiny shells! My favorites! YAY!!!
Just after I took a couple pictures, I bent over to look closer at the shells. I was instantly attacked by swarming no-see-ums. After that, I couldn't even slow down long enough to get the camera to focus. After swatting at them a few times, we ran back to the access path to get away. So, that turned out to be a 5 minute stay and couldn't even look at shells, let alone pick up any. Grrr!
It was a no-see-um alert; TRUE STORY!
I turned to take one last pic when I reached the access path.
Note to self: Don't wait until evening to go for a walk! Or...pray for wind!
