what a place to perch

waves-6668I see at least 19 cormorants and a gull…

You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.

  1. I can recognize your Dr Seuss quotes after about the 3rd or 4th word; didn’t know that was an area of expertise in my life. 🙂


    • It was certainly a wild day, but yesterday was even wilder. It was so bad that I only snapped a few shots and headed in out of the wind and the sand blasting.


  2. The rock itself looks like a huge bird thrusting out of the water into sky.
    And those birds, yes, good gauging on the elements. It reminds me of the summer faithful to the beach at Coney Island. They knew precisely where to put the aluminum beach chair, right at the edge, never get their feet wet.
    Sailors all, sizing up, knowing.


    • Yesterday the surf was so wild, I didn’t even want to take the camera out. The wind nearly knocked me over a couple of times. Yet another storm moving in and we got some more needed rain last night!


    • You’re right, the birds are safe for two reasons not only the inaccessibility, but it’s also part of a Nature Preserve, so they’re protected. There are quite a few birds that nest on those huge cliffs. I keep trying to spot a Puffin up there, but they tend to dig a depression so are hard to find.


  3. This is a wonderful shot Gunta, I love the greys and greens and yes, what a perch. Some prime real estate there for sure! There is a similar rock, slightly bigger, at Newquay on the north coast and someone built a house on it some years back. Access is via a rope walkway suspended above the beach. I think you can get down to the beach from the rock at low tide. It was up for sale about four years ago for £1m. Here’s a link.. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/9063880/For-sale-the-1m-home-with-its-own-suspension-bridge.html 🙂


    • Wow! That’s some house in a thrilling spot, though I’m not sure I’d want to live there. That rope walkway alone would make me queasy. Not to mention the price. I think I’ll just stick to my beach here. 🙂
