Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it. – William Feather
Low tide brings out the clam diggers in Charleston….
the humans, the gulls…
the Great Egret was pretty much minding its own business…
then the Great Blue Heron flew in,
stood there for a minute, causing the Egret to flutter its wings…
but then the Heron decided not to stick around.
It’s such a different landscape, it feels romantic to me.
It is quite different from where you are now, as well as very different from where you’re going! This area is my favorite of all the many places I’ve lived.
I’ll agree with the clam chowder observation, there are some great places around here, especially the chowder in a sourdough bread bowl.
It’s never ending entertainment, watching the birds, you’ve captured a fun encounter!
Thanks, Ehk! Life is good…. great chowder, fantastic bird watching. What could be better? And the sun is back out after last night’s storm.
Funny day today, alternating between sun and hail squalls. I’m indoors working on carvings, what could be better?
“Ehk” is a play with the word extreme, but softer..
I had an Uncle Eck (Eckbert), an old Swede who taught me much. I was known as Eek back in those wonderful years, in the present I’m Eric. Have a good day!
Hi Erik. It’s pretty much the same here. The sun disappeared and I had to turn the lights on and then the hail came down, enough to turn the dirt patches white. Now I’m seeing patches of blue sky again. I LOVE this changeable weather!
I was amused by the alternate spelling of extreme when I first encountered it. Have a wonderful ehkstream day yourself!
So many birds there right now. I went down to the estuary here a couple of weeks ago thinking there would be birds aplenty but there were few, except for a handful of ducks and an egret. Lovely shot of the heron in flight.
There are a lot more birds here in the winter. They seem to love the flooded pastures (or lakes). Pretty soon we should start getting the ones that breed out on the rocks at Bandon… I’m hoping to catch a better shot of the Puffins. They are such goofy looking birds, but they’re pretty shy, nesting on the huge cliffs that are out past even the low tide mark.
I hope you get a shot of the Puffins. I would love to see that.
