Spritsail and Sanderlings at Rest     Watercolor

You seldom see sanderlings at rest. They are the busy little sandpipers that dash after receding waves, looking for a choice morsel, and then dash back before the next wave can catch them. However, at times they do rest in groups, still enough for you to study, but wary of your approach. The boat is the classic North Carolina spritsail skiff featured prominently at the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, NC.
