Hairy Jaws

I just wanted a catchy title…but it IS actually related to my topic(s)…no it’s not about my hubby 🙂

This little hairy woodpecker was calling me for his photo session this afternoon.

I know he’s not hairy, that’s his name.

The holiday weekend brought lots of fishermen to Alsea Bay.  The ones who didn’t go back to school are still here today.

I don’t think a Chinook can get through this maze of fishermen!

I think what people refer to as “the jaws” is the narrow, choppy, area that transitions between the Alsea Bay and the ocean.  It’s pretty tricky to navigate and is not recommended.  It doesn’t look like these guys are in the dangerous part.

I just wanted to show you our cute bunny-neighbor.
