Since we live on the California coast, there was a tsunami watch today. We both figured it would be nothing but there were signs all over saying not to go to the beach. Which was a bummer because we had beach plans and it was super duper nice out. So, we took drastic measures and went up five thousand feet to Horse Mountain, since we'd never been there before. The sky was crazy blue coming from the northwest and the visibility was pretty spectacular today. We hiked around for a little while and then came back to the coast.
We still had a few hours of daylight so we tried to go to Moonstone and Luffenholtz beach but noooo, they had closed them off because of the nonexistent big waves. I guess the ocean looked a little angrier than usual but I've seen it a whole lot meaner than that!
So, then we went to the marsh but it had gotten pretty windy and chilly and we were wimpy so we didn't spend a whole lot of time there. We gave it one last go at the Virginia's Warbler in Arcata. I finally saw it (yay!) and managed to get an okay shot. (Post below) The guy below is a Green-winged Teal. ..A full day of sun! I like it! Blue Monday and My World Tuesday
