Thank you, Tonia - the ships that travel through Coos Bay use these markers to navigate the deep channel. You can see two more in the distance on the left of the image. It was a wet day, but very calm on the Bay :O)

Hi, dear Billy, and thanks! The rain gave this view a different look. Looking basically North to South, the pilings in the distance on the left are brown pelican and cormorant territory, and we live just to the left of this red marker, with a view of all this from our house. Hope you're having a fine weekend :O)

Another lovely ans simple photo dear Suzi. You certainly know how to present these sorts of things :)))

We're clearing snow here this morning - again! It has only been about 4 inches, but there has been some drifting. It's going to take a bit of time to be able to get out :)))

Good morning (local), dear Amelia - here, I hesitate to tell you, it is +8.5C at night and warms up a bit during the day, with drizzle. Today the sun is trying. The garden is waking up - hope it is not being foolish!

Thank you for the lovely compliment. We checked our mail at the post office, stopped at the espresso hut for a latte, then drove down to the boatlaunch area and sat looking at this view through the rain. The tide was rushing out and there were a lot of logs and debris rushing along with it, no doubt from the last windstorm, the rains carrying it to the rivers, on it's way to the sea. Some will wash back onto the ocean shores and locals with 4-wheel drive vehicles will be collecting driftwood for their fireplaces :O)
