Three weeks have swiftly raced past, but at the same time, eons have gone by. I cannot remember much from the previous times back in Bellingham, and though I miss my poor sailboat, Altair, I am growing fonder and fonder of the Wilderness Adventurer. Sometimes I even call her "my boat". This past week had fantastic weather and I got to go for a nice hike at the Bay of Pillars. On shore there was this Asparagus plant that is a succulent living in just above the tide line, and a beautiful meadow that was itching for bears, but sadly there were none. Sitka Spruce forests closed in on us as we wandered inland, and we scrambled up to a nice bog full of dead trees and carnivorous plants. I saw a Blue Grouse and got a nice picture of her, as well as an eagle, and a Newt.
Going into the ice was fantastic as always, and I got a few shots of that too.
We did a short stop over by some sea lions and they came right up to us to visit as well.
I have three more weeks to go and then a two week break.
