Dec 27 Barnegat Lighthouse State Park

Sunday at Barnegat Light, NJ
It was a glorious day, close to fifty degrees, gulls, peeps, loons, red-breasted merganser, and sea ducks were in abundance. Barnegat Light is known for its lighthouse and a mile long jetty. In the winter, the jetty is the best place to see harlequin and other sea ducks. In walking the jetty one needs to be careful every step of the way. Howard B. Eskin, an excellent photographer had a harrowing accident that he recounted:
Since then, I stick to the sand, rather than the jetty. There is a concrete walkway up to the jetty, which can be very productive. The posted images were taken from both the walkway and the sand.
