We were enticed down to the shore by this groovy old fishing boat.
Gracie was happy to stretch her legs.
We spotted a number of bald eagles fishing in the ebbing tide. Here are three scouting out the prospects - the brown mottled one is a juvenile.
We were told that they were feeding on midshipmen, a small bullhead-like fish. It was amazing to see them dive and scoop their dinner out of the water, although this guy preferred to just reach in and grab.
Gracie met a playmate and they chased each other back and forth.
It wouldn't be a beach walk with Heather if I didn't include a shot of rock formations. The fractured black shale shore is so different from the smooth sandstone of home.
On the way back Gracie had a drink from a shady forest pool.
And then conked out on our host's couch. She seems right at home!
I did get some stitching done on this trip, and will have photos soon.
