Sea Gulls, Sea Lions, Cormorants, Pelican Vanity and One Land Logged Cat.

Showing off close up ability of my new camera!
Thanks for posing Mr. Gull.
At the Tides Inn in Bodega Bay
Kayaks for Mim
Several Sea Lions swam here!
Five Cormorants stood guard!
One pelican premed and premed herself.
We saw plenty of whales too arching out of the water, diving down again, but
never up long enough to catch it on camera. Back home I got started on a second project. I don't usually do 2 projects
at once. But this one has a deadline. And I can't even post about it
as it has to remain a secret until it's due to be shown Sept. 30th
on Quilts Around the World Blog.
But I can show a hint
and I am,
Henry V
is sitting on it!
Happy Animal Wednesday
Our deepest condolences to Cris and Con for having to say goodbye to their sweet Nikki yesterday.
May she rest peacefully in kitty heaven.
