Can't climb on it, but one never gets tired of looking at it.

I like the photos but is there really enough water to go all the way to Oregon, let alone Taiwan?

It was a relief to find the local sea still there but the sun was disappearing Taiwan-ward.

Dry as dry can be in the PNW, Bruce. Threatened by a stalk of grass, though. Good thing Ondrej and Mook were out there, too.


I'm okay with the sun going West. That happens every day. It's that damn trip South that makes the Northern parts of the Traverse tricky for old fingers this time of year.

Same hold





They did not have pads.

Considering all the times I've been huffed at by sea lions there in thye summer, a great white would not be out of place.

An orca would probably make a great crashpad

Oh for an app that would alert me, if I had a cell phone. If there was an app. Grey whale, orca, dolphin, great white, or Chilean submarine.

Nicely done then! There was some discussion over cocktails near the base last spring-cool to hear it happened. MH2, were the other folks in attendance also sportsmen?

One was a local photographer/climber, one was a face that seemed familiar from photos but whose name I couldn't be sure of, and Will.

It seemed a tad brisk even in the pm sun for the traverse, so a little mtn biking was in order -this shot partway though a road up/trail down circuit on the slopes below cypress bowl ski area -the traverse is on the water behind the camera; our home town

Good, gf. We need establishing shots, too.


Whatever they are?

edit:

An establishing shot in filmmaking and television production sets up, or establishes the context for a scene by showing the relationship between its important figures and objects. It is generally a long- or extreme-long shot at the beginning of a scene indicating where, and sometimes when, the remainder of the scene takes place.


Well. Maybe it is a little late in the thread for the establishing shot. Still a good picture of our environs, today.

Apologies for the crappy otter pic. I felt like having the moment for a brain memory rather than an eternal photo representation.

There were 3 of them, 1 larger than the other 2. They played and hunted in a team and were obviously enjoying the bounty and nice conditions in the Sun.

There was a crowd of around 50 people enjoying the otters. I said, Otters ! to the Chinese tourist family who mixed "beaver" into their dialect. OTTERS ! they replied, happy with the correction.

Time stood still while visitors from many countries, skateboarders, urban metal faced youths, old queens and everyone else just enjoyed the good things the Earth offers with otters on a sunny winter day.
