Another beautiful morning walking around Coupeville and the Ebey Prairie. I walked from one side of the island to the other and back taking way too many photos. Even though I took bunch I hope you can take the time to look at them all.
The sunrise was spectacular once again.
The moon was still full and it caught my attention as I walked under a light pole. It made me think of what it would be like if instead of sodium-vapor streetlights they were all moonlight.
Here’s a little closer look at that light source.
I walked along the bluff trail to Ebey’s Landing. The morning light was really wonderful.
Where the bluff trail turns east you can look down on the beach where I saw a group of fisherman trying to lure the illusive salmon.
From there on the birds got all of my attention. When I took this picture I thought it was better than it turned out but still it was interesting to see a blackbird attacking a hawk.
Heading back across the prairie I caught this hawk in flight. It was cruising the fields looking for small critters.
Back on the north side of the island, out on the wharf, I spotted this Great Blue Heron down on the dock. I don’t know why it was looking at this small space between docks, I don’t think it could catch any fish there.
As I was walking off the wharf I spotted these seagulls swimming, flying and sitting on the beach. I thought it was an interesting photo.
And finally I spotted these birds sitting on the dock. It’s Al and Deborah, two friends that I cross paths with on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s. Those are the days they walk and they walk ten miles each day. I think Deborah walks every day.
What a great way to wrap up this week. I’m not sure what next week will be like as rain is in the forecast. Have a great weekend.
