Redeeming Qualities of New Jersey

Watching the Waves

Another image from a lovely morning at Island Beach State Park.

Unfortunately I'm not feeling very well today, so I'm going to keep this post short. I would, however, like to stick to my promise of telling you more about wetlands. Did you know that beaches are a type of coastal wetland? Yep - everything below Spring high tide is technically considered a wetland. To learn more, check out these links:

Marine Intertidal Zones
Cowardin Wetland Classification System (USGS)
Wetland Types (US EPA)

Is there anything specific you're interested in learning about wetlands? If so please let me know in the comments section!

  2. very lovey photo! i love the beach when the sun is not so bright and the sky not so blue. hope your health picks up :)

  3. Hope you are feeling better - interesting post and, as is your usual, terrific photo.

  4. I love this photo, the grays and blues, with the white foam of the waves. Just lovely.
