The camp (complete with one white dog):
"Blue tarp camper, you're one of us."
We celebrated my birthday while we were one the island. My request was lunch at The Hungry Clam (great restaurant. If you ever happen to go there.... get a milkshake. They're HUGE!) and then the bookstore. The island has two wonderful bookstores and they also had a library book sale while we were there. So I came home with lots of lovely books.
I'm the one in the Doctor Who t-shirt. And that's just a corner of the bookstore. The rest of it is just as packed with books. They have over 45,000 titles. 0.0
The beautiful sunset:
A butcher on the island takes all of his leftovers and spreads them out of a flat stretch of ground; foxes, bald eagles, and ever a black cat come and take the scraps of meat. It's very cool to watch, although it isn't good that the animals are becoming reliant on humans for their food.
Black kitty going for a drumstick. Ravenpaw?
A gray fox. This is was sooooo cool because foxes are one of my favorite animals.
No bald eagles were coming so we went back to the car and got in. Just then, FIVE (all in the above picture) eagles came swooping down and started dive bombing the piles of meat. It was really cool.
"Why yes, I am rather fabulous, aren't I?"
"Mine, mine, mine!"
There are three Orca whale pods in the Pacific northwest: J, K, and L pods. This has been a very bad year for whale watchers because the whales haven't been coming by lately. We were lucky enough to see them two days.
Breach! The whales must have been happy because we saw at least five breaches! The whale above did three in a row! It was really amazing to watch!
And one last picture:
Ghost mountains in the background. The land to the left looks like Jurassic Park!
Live long and prosper.
