Here's another picture from the Oregon coast--this estuary is a natural habitat, and wonderfully alive in the spring with nesting birds and bullfrogs providing *morning song* (tweet-tweet) and *night music* (ribbet-ribbet). It's completely closed off to foot traffic, I was standing on the edge of the road looking in.
And this photo...taken from the opposite end--facing toward the sea.
The sound of the ocean at low tide is but a whisper on the wind. . . . .
Yesterday, we were just sitting down to lunch, when a young male bobcat hopped up on our backyard deck and casually strolled by. We fell over ourselves trying to get to the windows to watch him. This is of course, a thrill as well as a concern living on the edge of a vast wilderness.
Rainy days are here again...but at least we have rainbows!
