Along the Pacific Coast

Sarasota, Florida

Sometimes you feel like a Hobbit. Then you hear a bustle in a hedgerow. It's just a spring clean for the May Queen. This is a medium-sized redwood in the Ladybird Johnson grove. The human figure is 6 feet in height and approximately the same in girth.

These flowers grow in the dark redwood "groves". Sometimes they catch a sunbeam.

The California coast has lots of rocks.

In Oregon, driftwood takes on strange shapes.

This is a "Stellar's" Jay. Stellar also has some seals named after him.

We went out of our way to find some of Oregon's tidal pools.

It was worth the search.

The waves carve strange fin shapes facing the Pacific.

These birds like the safety of a rock face. The white stuff is bird dukey. (Sweetheart, I'd like to kiss you but your breath smells like dukey.)

I'm picking way too many pictures for Calendar candidates.
