My Saturday....

Sunday, August 25, 2013

I decided Saturday morning to get my lazy arse out of bed and head out to the coast for a hike. As always, loved it! It is only about an hour from me depending on the activities happening in the small towns between me and the beautiful crashing waves. Just thought I would share some of the photos I took as I meandered about....

What's a trip to the coast without a few sea gulls?

I could hear the sea lions and the grey whales but due to the coastal fog, I couldn't see them. Can you tell why I LOVE to go out there? It is always beautiful with or without the fog and this spot is almost always foggy and windy. As a bonus, burned some calories!!

Oh and the shot that the nature photographer in me just LOVES....

Did I mention I am proud of this photo??

I got really lucky and this harrier landed about 100 feet in front of me suddenly. I have never seen a bird of prey come anywhere near the people let alone land so close. Of course he landed while I still had my camera in my backpack! Figures! I was silently praying that he wouldn't fly off before I could get my camera out and that the sound wouldn't scare him.

So a few glimpses into how I spent my Saturday. Hope you enjoyed it!

    Beautiful pictures! I particularly loved the picture of the harrier. Thank you for sharing. The ocean is such a wonderful place to be...the power and awe of the water, waves, wind, and briny sea air.
