Down at the shore

We had a nice do-nothing Saturday planned until Kristal called at the crack of 11 offering up the idea to go birding at the park down the road from us. This is the time of year that the turkey vultures gather, circle around a bit and ready themselves for their annual migration across the strait - how could we resist!


We saw some orcas go by as well (and on the drive home a big ol' black bear ambled across the road in front of us):

Geez. Well today I frightened a squirrel off our porch when I opened the front door, and later I swatted a really big fly who was buzzing around our apartment. But I guess that doesn't really compare, does it? (I am also noting that my interactions with nature involve scaring and destroying...nothing to be proud of.)
