[Two-mile Beach during Jonas. Click to play.]
We had a heck of a nor'easter in the form of Jonas two weeks ago. People talk about hurricanes, but it is the fall and winter northeast storms that do the most work on the south Jersey coastline. North Wildwood had record high tides during Jonas, higher than superstorm Sandy and higher than the great storm of 1962.
Of course, one must see what's going on outside when the winds are topping 60 mph and we're getting hit with 3 consecutive full moon high tides, right?
[Two weeks later, today, we had another big tide, this one associated with the morning's new moon. This scene is at Nummy Island at high tide. I did find 3 Saltmarsh Sparrows and 1 Seaside Sparrow along the causeway.]

Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.
