One of the most interesting sights was several horseshoe crabs swimming along a section of the shoreline. The smaller crabs would attach to the larger crabs and be pulled along in a string….could this be some form of mating ritual? check out this link http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/horseshoecrab/history/reproduction.html
After our drive at the refuge, we had brunch at the Sunset Grill on the road just across the beach. We ate on the porch enjoying the beautiful morning and the sounds of the surf. Al ordered bagel and smoked salmon served with smoked salmon, capers, onions and cream cheese. I enjoyed the poached eggs with wheat toast and hashed browns.
We spent a lovely afternoon at the beach watching the birds and boats going by.
