A Little California Birding:

I did a little birding during our daily outings on our recent California trip.

In particular, I enjoyed observing and photographing the many squadrons of Brown Pelicans cruising all along this portion of the West Coast.

So in today’s post, I’ll feature some of my favorite pelican images:

Two photos of American White Pelicans (Baylands Nature Preserve); a group of Brants (Half Moon Bay); Common Raven (Fort Funston); Western Gull (Carmel-by-the-Sea; and five shots of Brown Pelicans (Half Moon Bay & Carmel-by-the-Sea).


Stay safe, and have a great day!

California Visit:

Several days ago, my wife and I returned from a great week-long visit with our son, Julian, who lives in Palo Alto, CA.

In addition to enjoying visiting with Julian, this was our first opportunity to meet Julian’s dog, Kelly.

Julian and Kelly were excellent hosts!

Together, we went on several day trips along the coast, ranging as far north as Stinson Beach, and as far south as Big Sur.

Beach visits were emphasized, because Kelly especially loves exploring beach environments.

Today, I’d like to share several of my favorite images of Kelly. As you will see, she is a beautiful animal:

Kelly in Julian’s car at Half Moon Bay; two photos of Kelly on the beach at Half Moon Bay; Kelly at Carmel-by-the-Sea; Kelly at Fort Funston; and five shots of Kelly enjoying Big Sur, (three with new friends).


Stay safe, and have a great day!
