Magical Moment 343, "Beach Day, Winter Style"

My husband, a U.S. National Park Ranger, had to qualify with his weapon and take his physical fitness test today. And since the day was free for me, I decided to drive down to Sandy Hook National Park with him and occupy myself for a few hours while he conducted business. It turned out to be a beautiful day... (click to enlarge photos if you wish)


I was stunned to see the sandy beach sandwiched between snow and ocean.


Joy was so happy to bark at the waves, she flew a little.


It was such a clear day, that even the moon decided to make an appearance, just over the lighthouse.


We trudged through the wild snowy trails. Joy, my ever loyal dog, plowed a path for me.


Most importantly, Eddie qualified with flying colors.


And then our trio flew home. Past the flying geese.
