Iced Cormorant

Cormorant

Lake Nelson is mostly frozen. While Chris is sharpening her skates, the cormorants seem less happy with this development. Mike is considering moving the jacuzzi onto the dock and stocking it with fish.

Harlequin Ducks at Barnegat Lighthouse


We visited Barnegat Lighthouse State Park to see the Harlequin Ducks. Others have reported seeing 20 or more, but we only saw three. The lighting was good today and this year's pictures came out better than last year's. In fact, we are so happy with them that Mike has agreed that he'll never again drag Chris onto a jetty made of boulders with treacherous crevices in 35 degree weather and high winds where Mary twisted her ankle.
