When the birding/blogging/tweeting/chirping group went to Plum Island, MA on Saturday we never actually made it to the beautiful stretch of beach at the end of the island. Due to a childrens fishing derby the parking lot was full and they won't anyone to park on the sides of the road. Here are a few shots I took back in March while visiting the beach with a friend.
Looking out across the water, south towards the main land, is a stark contrast to the vast openess of the island itself. There are houses lining the shore 4 and 5 deep for a long distance.
No trespassing signs dot the islands landscape in order to protect natural habitat and nesting areas. If you ever have the chance to go to Plum Island, don't miss out. No ferry is necessary to get there and the admission fee is only $5 per car after Memorial Day.
