One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.

Ships, Eagles and Rodents at the Beach
After lunch today, I let Skye nag me into taking a walk down to the beach. It's overcast, cool (55 F) and calm here, and just a bit misty at times.
From the raked mast and the sails, I'm pretty sure this was the Pride of Baltimore II heading down the Bay, a long way out. The hull was below the horizon, and some of the rigging, (especially the bowsprit) is reflected in a mirage.
A juvenile eagle was being harassed by crow (the crow is not in the photo).
And a Whistle Pig (Ground Hog) watched us pass his hole on the cliff. Back in the old days, with Skye I off the leash, it would have had a tougher time, but we don't trust Skye II off the leash (well we trust she'll run away).
