A Pre-Rainstorm Morning on the Beach
The clouds started to gather and the sky got quite dark, but we stayed until it started pouring.
With nothing blocking the sky, you can see rainstorms off in the distance. The wind was blowing this one away from us, but another came from the other side of the sky.
The Outer Banks seagulls are not at all afraid of people (unlike the plovers), and some were running pretty close to the fisherman in search of a snack.
Every 400 metres or so, there was a collection of shorebirds hunting for sand crabs, running down to peck at the sand when waves receded, quickly scuttling back when they broke.
