We're Back.....

We're back, but if I had my way, we would still be there. Where is "there," you ask??? The little town of Moclips, that's where....
It is a small town on the Northern coast of WA, it has a private beach-no cars allowed-and it butts up next to the Quinault Indian Reservation, which has wildlife, scenery, and a cultural heritage that is to die for.
We all had a really good time, and I promise that there will be more beach posts, but for now, enjoy some of the wildlife photos that I took....
Eric walking down the beach-towards the Reservation-with seagulls, sand pipers, and pelicans taking flight in the distance.....
A small shark that was left behind as the tide went out....
A majestic bald eagle who sat watch on the Reservation.... A dead stingray that was also left behind as the tide went out. We found him upriver from the ocean.... His skin was rough and covered in sharp spines. You can kind of see them here.....
A shell being washed ashore by the incoming tide...
A dead crab whose carcass had yet to be scavenged by the seagulls....
A sand dollar peaking out from the sand....
And another eagle-either a young bald eagle or a golden eagle-who followed us from the Reservation back to our hotel...
I wonder what he was thinking???

Anywho, there will be more pics to follow. I promise.....
