Kicking Myself This Morning

I just returned from Double Bluff Beach, where I took Zuma to play. It was a very low tide this morning, which means that the water has receded WAY out, leaving huge, wide beaches with many tide pools, etc. Bliss! And it is many degrees cooler over there, especially when we wade in the cool water. This morning, the air was so clear that Mount Rainier stood out like a giant mound of ice cream on the horizon. The tall buildings of Seattle were clearly visible too, thrusting into the sky. Walking back to the car, I suddenly noticed that THREE bald eagles were sitting in the tree closest to the parking lot. They were so close that I could see their eyes, their feathers, their beaks, with my naked eye. And did I remember to bring my camera today????? That's why I'm kicking myself.....

That falls into the honking big "oops" category.

Oh you always do that-kick yourself for not taking your camera. Your description is better than any photo you could take, dear Sigrid.

Three bald eagles! Now that's quite a sight. Isn't it amazing when you can get close enough to actually see their eyes, and the rich colors of their feathers?
