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

Beach and Bay Report 1/30/21
Last night was the coldest night of the winter here so far, 24 F, and when Skye and I reached the harbor, there was moderately thick skim ice in the back, where it's fresher, and less well wind mixed.
Not enough to freeze much of anything on the bay, although there was an icy edge now and then
And some big icicles hanging off the cliffs.
For the last two days it had been overcast and windy, with gusts to 30 or more mph, enough the we avoided the beach and walked the street. Today the wind was down to a mere 10 or so NW, which was pretty tolerable. Fossil hunting was bed despite a low tide, 4 teeth, of which Georgia found 3.
A big freighter from the Evergreen line, with the logo warped by the mirage.
You can see the ice on the beach from frozen bay water, and ice on the jetty from frozen spray/
And a seagull.
As we were leaving the beach, Pete drove up and asked if I'd like to go with him a little later to check out the fishing at the power plant.
We met as his boat about 1 PM, had to break some ice with his boat to clear the harbor, and headed off.
Not a fish to be found. Well, Pete thought he snagged one for a few seconds, but we never got to see it, so it doesn't count.
