Type of Hike

Day hike
Our son (Boston area) and daughter (Indianapolis) and their family were with us for 10 days to help us celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Time did not allow for our usual camping and hiking trip so we brought them here for a short walk on the boardwalk. We had never been here in the summer. There were very few birds which was disappointing, but it was a fun walk with family. Heron, a kingfisher, 2 eagles, mallards, geese, and a few shorebirds were seen.
