I thought the storms would take more sand off the beach. But there is more now than there was last summer. I found this photo, from last January, to compare to how it looks now.
The water is too bright to see because I had to lighten up the picture in order to see the bolders at the end of the stairway. Compare the only 2 rocks showing in this next picture. There’s probably 2 more feet of sand depth here!
Lately there’s been big flocks of birds on the beaches. But, until Saturday, I hadn’t seen the pelicans on Tillicum Beach. They must have found something yummy to eat!
The other birds are Western Gulls and, I think, Heermann’s Gulls. At least they look like the picture in my bird guidebook. One of my pictures (not these) shows a pelican with a band but it’s not close enough to get a number off of it.
It’s hunting season so this cow is hiding in the elk herd to avoid the hunters. Cow season?
Goodnight Gracie 🙂
