A Sad Day . . .

A sad day
"So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh just let them be little" Tim McGraw

Twilight Crashes Back

La Push's southern beach appears to look like a scene from Twilight the movie.

US Coast Guard Surf Training

La Push image of a La Push Coast Guard boat doing surf rescue training.
Matt Hinton wrote me, "Very dramatic place in winter... And the scene of a tragedy a couple of years back. A sailboat made a distress call -- caught in high winds and
heavy seas a few miles north of La Push. The skipper of the Coast Guard lifeboat at La Push made a rash decision that he and his crew should go to the rescue. Their boat was wrecked almost immediately, overwhelmed by huge waves and destroyed on the rocks. Only one crewmember survived. The crew on the sailboat, meanwhile, were rescued by helicopter. Their boat ended up crammed deep in a narrow channel in the rocks, and created a huge fight over salvage rights."

And We Chose The Gold Finch . . .

I spent so much time with this Bald eagle. I wanted to capture it flying away. He did eventually fly but he dropped behind the trees and I was on the wrong side at the right time. (yes, I know the Bald Eagle is our national bird). I was just saying.
