On this Earth Day I enjoyed the crisp and chilly air on my exercise walk this morning, and I am dreaming of places I can't currently visit during this stay-at-home time.
Here's a photo from my last walk on the beach at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge before the beach closed on April 1st for the nesting season of the endangered piping plover.
While it's still possible to walk into the refuge the gate was closed to motor vehicles as of April 17th. Unfortunately - probably due to misbehavior of individuals - there is no longer a place to park on Plum Island to walk into the refuge so it is pretty much off limits for now.
I guess I need to keep dreaming.
