We were so happy to have a shower, a bed and a kitchen - and a living room with table and chairs, after the primitive cabin at the state park - we unpacked everything and were then set to enjoy our two and a half days in the cabin. There is a large RV resort behind the cabins - it was very full and as we sat on the deck we got waves and hellos from many people taking walks, riding bikes, walking their dogs - a very peaceful place to vacation.
On the way into the cabin we saw this boat being moved from storage to the boat ramp - I had no idea they had boat moving machines.
We were right across the street from the bay - so when the tides went in and out we watched (and photographed) the herons feeding.
Another landing - they take a long time to settle those large wings
Can you do this with your neck?
Walking in the shallows - looking for a fish
So many herons. I had my tripod set up on the deck
This heron picked up something from the bay - a clam or a mussel I suppose
And away he goes
One of the buildings at the Resort had bird feeders all along one side - and this mother bird was feeding her baby. Baby seems to have gotten tired of waiting
Crow mama picked a mussel from the bay - dropped it on the pavement and fed the children
Cedar Waxwings in a tree top - baby asking for food - it seemed to be baby bird time
Canada Geese were feeding in the bay
And what would a post from me be, without a picture of Mt. Baker - this is the side we don't see from Bellingham, this is off the side deck of our cabin.
Sweet Peas grow wild along the road sides and any place they can find a little soil and water
A Yucca blooming just below our deck
And of course blackberry bushes everywhere. The berries should be ripe sometime in August
And an eagle in a tree top
He was perched over the bay - look how his constant perching has bent that tree top over. Often when I am looking for a Bald Eagle I will search for a flattened tree top or a bent over top.
Tomorrow - taking walks - and wait until you see what we discovered!!!
