 Can you make out the teeny tiny crab in this photo?
Here he is again in my niece's little box...he was fierce.
We did let him go back to the wild. :)

I feel so blessed to have this view each and every day.
Sometimes you can see all the mountains (Rocky Mountains)
and sometimes you just see clouds. 
 But I love clouds as well, so there is always something wonderful to see on my seawalks.
Interesting cloud.....
 Some early morning fishing...cormorants, sometimes there are assorted ducks and
I so want a telephoto lens...here (below) is an eagle having his fishy breakfast. I know he looks just like a rock with a white spot... :)
And here he/she is sitting up on a pole after.  It was interesting to watch that as he ate, all the seagulls kept their distance.  There was no crowding this eagle over food that's for sure. 
And I relish this view of the evening mountains (below)from across the street, which seems to always be changing, always fresh and amazing to me. 
So that is a bit of my seawalk for the day.
Oh, and saw my first cruise ship of the season go by through Discovery Passage last evening.  It's on it's way to Alaska...I'd love to take that cruise some day.  It was fairly dark  when I saw it and I'm running outside into the parking lot in my socks, which got totally soaked, but I did manage to get a couple of photos with my wee camera.
    I hope you enjoyed the photos.
Until next time, MO

First Post

My first post on my new blog and I'm nervous and excited about creating this space.  Where to start, so many things to share and to tell you about.  I'll start with my morning walk which started out sunny.  When I saw the seagulls I thought of Jonathan Livingstone Seagull's "morning flock".  Jonathan was no where in sight to entertain with aerobatics, unfortunately.
The humble dandelion...magnificent specimens though!  They made me happy.
Sunshine didn't last very long this morning, clouds were building pretty quickly, so cut my walk short and headed home for a breakfast of strawberry jam on biscuits and a coffee.  Delish!
Bit of an indulgence this morning...I strayed from my normal brekky of oatmeal flavored with maple syrup.
There...nothing earth shattering about this post, but it's like sitting with an empty canvas in front of you...sometimes you just have to make a mark, dirty it up some, makes it easier to get just get going!
'Til next time, MO
