cooling off at the beach
Still sunny, not a cloud in the sky and much too warm, but it was cooler right on the beachI wanted to stay.
As an afterthought, I happened across the following shot that came right after the one I posted yesterday (of the bird bouncing on the water). I had assumed that yesterday’s bird was trying to take off, but….. this shot actually shows the bird coming in for a landing – either that, or he totally botched the takeoff. I also identified this guy as a Common Murre. That’s the birds that have the huge colonies up on the cliffs. They look a lot like penguins when they’re perched up there.
Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder ‘why, why, why?’
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.
