Beach Combing in New Jersey

We anchored near Jersey City, New Jersey for two nights to do laundry and catch up on work after NYC.  We took the dingy into a little reclaimed marsh nearby and saw an incredible variety of wild birds and native plants, all framed by the glittering sky scrapers of New York and the Statue of Liberty. That red marsh plant is called pickleweed, and I found a neat blog post about it here
