    Lovely day kayaking on the Mullica up to Lock's Bridge

    I paddled a few hours on the Mullica up to Lock's Bridge a few weeks ago, my first time kayaking since breaking my ankle right after Memorial Day. Beautiful day! Here are two of my favorite photos, and I wrote a post about it as well: Kayaking on the Mullica River.

    Rosa Rugosa

    I took this picture last May in the dunes in North Brigantine last May. My PlantSnap app identified it as a Rosa Rugosa. Beautiful flower, but I saw some sites that said it was an invasive species. Does anyone know if that is true?
