OK, the turkey was actually sand-free, but I thought the statement was a catchy way to introduce the slightly unorthodox way that I spent part of my Thanksgiving.
She poses on the back "wall" of sand behind the beach. If it looks like it drops off suddenly, it's because it does. Recent storm surges have caused the water to swell higher than usual, pulling the sand away from the bank. Kind of scary! Marge had to jump 3 or 4 feet to get up there.
And, she ran some more.
One last pic -- here are those pesky geese-like birds that I was looking for an ID on a couple of weeks ago. Anyone have any ideas? They are pretty birds, but I don't appreciate having to wade through their poop all the time!
