    Grey "Cabana" Tree Frog

    Yesterday while helping to set up a family get together at my Mom's, we moved a couple of stack chairs in the pool yard. Found this little guy resting on the chair back. Apparently they like the pool yard. There are three of them that show up regularly. Turned him loose in the rhodendrens.

    Plant ID Help needed

    On 7/3 we paddled up the Mannamuskin from Cumberland Pond to the power lines. On the way back I noticed a very large shrub, both in circumference and height, loaded with yellow flowers. I haven't been able to ID it and was hoping someone here may know. Sorry the pictures aren't clearer...

    Walk on the Beach

    While reading and responding to another thread, I thought this might be a good place to show what is blooming or calling my part ofthe Pines home. I live with in about a 1/2 block of our main lake. The lakes here were cranberry bogs in the late 1800's early 1900's. I have lived here my whole...

    Egg Harbor River

    Has anyone paddled the EHR from Winslow WMA to Penny Pot? Or the section from RT 54 to Penny Pot? We've paddled the river from 8th Street to Lake Lenape...but haven't done the upper part. Not sure if we ever will, just wondering what that section of the river is like.

    King Eiders at Weymouth Furnace

    I stopped at the furnace on my way home from work on Friday and was suprised to find a pair of what appears to be King Eiders. Unfortunately I did not have my telephoto lens with me, so the pics aren't that clear when enlarged. You never know what you might see in the pines....

    Old Camp?

    The other weekend a friend and I were exploring what appears to be an old, maybe church camp off of Richards Ave near the Nescohague. Spotted a couple of concrete slabs where cabins (?) possibly stood. And an old dock on the lake. Does anybody know what this place really was and how long ago?
