We went out for my birthday dinner tonight - a nice restaurant on the beach in Birch Bay. I had fish - delicious - and Don had a steak.
The sun was shining and the view of the bay was amazing. After dinner we had a treat of ice cream cones and meandered through Birch Bay State Park - and this is what we saw
Two Bald Eagles high up in a tree
overlooking the bay
I think they were watching the ducks on the bay - planning dinner
They probably have a nest nearby
but we couldn't see one.
Then we drove past the tree for a view
of them from the other side
You can see the colors of the sunset
reflecting on their white feathers
Beautiful sunset tonight - behind that cloud bank is Vancouver Island in British Columbia
It was unusually quiet and peaceful there - the only sounds were the waves lapping gently on the beach and the evening birds singing their goodnight songs.
Perfect end to a perfect day.
