Attempted Seal-Watching at Beautiful Orchard Beach in the Bronx

This past Sunday, I went to Orchard Beach in the Bronx's Pelham Bay Park to hopefully see some seals (they come down from Maine during the winter). The park rangers had set up a viewing time for low tide. Unfortunately, they didn't come out of the water. The chances would have increased with a sunny day, and even after the rain stopped the skies remained cloudy.

Still, it's a lovely beach, even in winter.

Hi Hila,

Some great shots, despite the absence of the star attraction!

That's the thing about wildlife watching, you can't command an audience with the guest stars if they don't want to show. :)

Have a Happy and Peaceful New Year.

Yvonne.

Yep - this is pretty much what one of the rangers said :)

Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you a happy and peaceful year as well.
