Home - After 5,000 Miles

Sand Bags????

As we approached San Simeon, Ca. we could see in the distance, 
spread along the beach,  hundreds
of what  we though were sand bags.
Soon enough we saw what they really were!!
Their honking was deafening
and so was Toby's barking.
He had to be banished to the car!
We do not remember this Elephant Seal reserve 
from our last visit here back in the dark ages 
of the 1970"s.

It was dark, spooky and thrilling
to be among these huge beings and very large ferns too!
It was too dark most of the time for photos.

 We were amazed to see herds and herds of Elk

Oregon Coast

These photos of the southern Oregon coastline
speak for themselves.

Leaving Beautiful British Columbia

We sadly left BC earlier than we wanted. 
I was not at all well and 
needed to get back
to the U.S. in case I  needed
medical attention where our insurance
would work.

On our way out of Otter Point
I took this photo of
what has become my favorite sign ever!

Our Ferry awaits

A lovely smaller ferry

Another ferry like the one we are on

 Beautiful day - clear and blue for watching the islands as we passed them.

About Me

My photo
Santa Fe, New Mexico
I live in New Mexico, I love dogs and I love to knit and read and be out doors and sleep with my window open all year long. I paint birds which I then turn into greeting cards and books for people of all ages who have a good sense of humor.
