REFLECTION – April 9, 2015

I hope I didn’t wear you out today as we walked 6.87 miles, whew!

I went on a big loop around Ebey Prairie over to Ebey Landing. Out on the prairie I spotted these barns reflecting in a small pond of rain water.

A little further out I spotted this scarecrow family apparently guarding the chickens and turkeys.

Here’s a nice long shot of Ebey Landing and Admiralty Inlet. This is where people came to Whidbey Island in the late 1800’s arriving from the Olympic Peninsula and on south to Seattle. They would take a horse and buggy or stagecoach from the landing to Coupeville.

 Just as I was nearing the landing I spotted these two eagles way up in the top of this big tree. I don’t think I’ve ever seen two eagles sitting in a tree that close to each other.

So I’m pooped and ready to get on with the day. I hope you make a great day as well.

  1. Hi Ken
    Great shots and regarding your eagles… at the cabin in AK, mom, dad and baby would watch for my fish carcass offerings I would place on a small table for them, then the adults would fly down to the beach after watching for danger for several minutes … eventually the baby would join them for instruction on how to keep the magpies, ravens and seagulls away while feasting on the best parts… here’s a link to a photo of mom and baby…

    I don’t know how to paste links into your comments box. Just let me know if you are able to open when convenient…

    Keep up the hiking… I’ve lost 3# just reading about it!

    Saldudos, Dave

    • Those are beautiful photos Dave, the link worked perfectly. I really like watching nature and all the different things that the animals do. Thanks a lot for sharing.
