So the sun came out of hiding for a few hours the other day (about time, really). We made good use of it by going to the marsh, Fay Slough and the North Jetty area. There were very few birds (uh, spring migration is a little uneventful here, compared to what we're used to in Texas the past few years). My World, Watery Wednesday
It's been so cold lately, highs of no more tan 50 or something. I'm used to warm and sunny springs, so this is a bit of an adjustment for me. (the potential Mississippi move gets points for this: heat). Not that I'm complaining too much, stuff here is still freakishly beautiful.
The crazy waves were out again - they had shrunk a little by the time we checked them out, but still, they were about 22 feet. Crashing hard. The jetty was getting completely annihilated by the waves, pretty cool. Two of these are black and white, but the others aren't. The glare was just that harsh off the water. Little yellow yet-to-be-identified blooms were all over the place in the dunes.
There may have been a lack of birds at the marsh, but no lack of froggers like this little friend below.
