Hunting Eagle

Hunting Eagle

I was out for a walk at the beach recently, enjoying the springlike weather. There were a couple of eagles hovering around the top of the bluff, near where they have nested. This one thought there was something for lunch on the shore. Turned out to be a false alarm.

As it left, a gull started following, just in case there was something dropped.

Gull looking for handouts.

Marina Sunset

Marina Sunset

When we had a clearing late in the day, I headed down to the beach in downtown Port Townsend to catch the sunset. I thought the strong backlighting of the fishing fleet was an interesting contrast to the homes on the hillside and a faint hint of the mountains in the distance.

The Kennewick in Stormy Weather

The Ferry Kennewick coming in to Port Townsend

I enjoy walking in stormy weather and this October day was perfect for that. The rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains protects Port Townsend (some) but it is often very windy. Walking along the beach downtown, I noticed the ferry Kennewick coming into town. I was a little surprised, since in high winds they often cancel that ferry run.

This is at the ferry dock at Fulford Harbor, Salt Spring Island, B.C. The boy was practicing some chords, but was not an accomplished player. It was still pleasant (and better than I would have been able to remember).

Point Hudson

Point Hudson in Port Townsend WA

The view of Point Hudson from Fort Worden State Park (both in Port Townsend). The Point Hudson Marina is just to the right of the image and the downtown area of Port Townsend is just beyond that.
