Beach Ramble, and Upcoming Duck Derby

Doug Explaining a Finding to the Group
Saturday, at Allens Pond.  Doug let another interesting beach ramble.  It was a small group, but there were many subjects to see ranging from a rabbit, shorebirds, flowers and berries and the usual interesting items that are found along a beach.  Additionally at the culvert a lady crab was swimming around and as the lady crab swam past the drainage pipes a blue crab appeared out the drainage pipe.
