The sunset tonight was simple and serene - the exact way I like to think of summertime! No problems, no agendas, no time constraints - just relaxing and enjoying God's beauty unfold. Today is August 31 - tomorrow is September and the busy-ness of fall and school and work wil soon consume each of us.... so thankful for a moment to just sit and watch and to contemplate life..... so good for the soul!
I look at the clock and realize - the sun has already gone done! Drat! Honey will you drive with me down to Cline Spit to take pictures??? (it's a half block away - hah! but I wanted to go quickly) As I hop out of our van - the sun has already sat but the afterglow and show is just begining - and sitting on a rock right in front of me is this baby seagull. Now, seagulls and I are not on great terms right now as one has made a nest next door to the Cottages and the constant CONSTANT cawing has been driving me batty the last two weeks - so seeing a seagull doesn't make me jump up for joy - but this little guy just insisted I take his picture - and posing this way and "oh, how about if I turn my beak this way?" hahaha... too cute and a fun picture! Oh - and thank you , Tom for being my chaffuer!
Just a smooth-as-glass kind of afternoon on Dungeness Bay! Perfect for kayaking!
And dinner is in the bucket! Yummy Dungeness Crab - and a big Red Rock crab as well..... mmmmmm good!
