Malaquite Beach August 2011

Heron on the dune

You could see drought all the way from Austin to the barrier dunes of Malaquite Beach at the northern end of Padre Island National Park.  Couldn’t find a single crab, last year’s BP oil spill maybe?   Where I pitched the tent, a great blue heron stayed close.  I was glad to share his rookery, left it in better shape (picked up the plastic).
