Later The Same Day

It's still Sunday afternoon. We're in La Push, overlooking First Beach. The tide has turned, and steelhead are coming up the river. Steller's sea lions are working the river mouth, diving around, barking. (We know it's steelhead because one of the other watchers on the point is a fisherman.)

The sun came out, transforming the world.

Lovely pastels, and moisting air.
Did you get the new camera, or is your TBR book on digital photography kicking in? also see a tome by MP on Bhutan...still the world traveler? Guess she left PA for you to take care of, which you are doing.
