Day Trip to Crane Beach : Ipswich Massachusetts

We arrived at the reserve at about 3:30 so it only cost $7.50 instead of $15 to enter.
There are mile of trails to hike.
The dunes were wonderful and only the sounds were of what looked to be swallows swooping overhead.
Yes, Bank Swallows; they dig into the side sand dunes to nest.
The trails lead in and out of wooded areas and eventually down to the ocean.

I spotted this fellow on the wire.
To our amazement he didn't fly...didn't flinch.

We guessed he was people watching.
(Birder pay-back?)

I'll leave you here and show you the beach tomorrow.


  1. Andrea - You've outdone yourself! These beach hike photos make me homesick for the ocean! Will look forward to the rest. I also like your new "look" for the blog.

  2. That looks a great place to explore Andrea.
    Love that people watcher. lol


Glad you could stop by.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
