Well, the trip started with a bang, but ended with a whimper.

But this is why we always spend two weeks. Sometimes the second week is the better, sometimes the middle of the trip, and sometimes the beginning. You never can predict what the weather will do (or bring).

I mentioned in an earlier post the flash of the white wings of the Rock Ptarmigan. Here is a photo of that, albeit from the rear…

As we took off, I got a few new photos of Clam Lagoon. In this photo, Clam lagoon is in the center with the flats at the left. You can see the peninsula (center left). Lake Shirley is top right (in the sunshine). The seawall extends through the top right quadrant.

We got home a little late. The Chicago-Philly flight was delayed about 45 minutes and there was traffic backed up on the “Blue Route” which stretched out the drive home by an extra half-hour or so.

We hope you enjoyed this blog of our trip. We hope to do it again.

Overall, it was a good trip. We’ll be back…
