Delaware Bay

The day after the Sluice Gallery opening Dale Rosselet accompanied me to Cook’s Beach in northwestern Cape May County. Just offshore was a series of  old pilings covered with adult Forster’s Terns, just waiting to be sketched. Using my wonderfully small and light-weight Nikon 50mm scope to view them, sketching commenced.

It became apparent very soon thereafter that long pants would have been a wiser choice than shorts. Little and vicious biting flies plagued us as we sat on the beach. The flies emanated from the nearby marsh.  There was no way to concentrate, even with a shirt draped over my legs.
