I am sorry this isn't a sharper image, but I like how the water surrounds it as it makes it's escape into the deeper water, deciding we are getting just a bit too close in the canoe. The green stripe in the background is seaweed (lettuce, they call it around here) that has come in with the tide and is trapped on the sand bar. Tons of this lettuce comes in to the Bay from the Pacific, and the Canada Geese eat it like there's no tomorrow!

Thanks very much, Billy - yes, and I miss living at the beach and going out in the canoe. But here we have lots of birds, raccoons and deer, plus a great view. Happy days (O:

You are very kind, Stolpi - thank you for the star! In the Spring, a great many harbor seals rear their pups just across the Bay from us. When we are in the canoe, they pop up all around us, but never too close. I love their curiosity! Happy days (O:
