Images from an evening stroll on the beach.2.17.09
I put the paper to bed early Monday night. On Tuesday I delivered papers to the post office and to about 40 newspaper racks and retail locations from Eureka to Trinidad. Then it was time for a stroll on the beach.

We had fun with shadows.

Walking back to Kim's house we came across a red-bellied newt.
People say there are Bald Eagles in Humboldt County and that they've seen them.
But I've never been that lucky, until this morning. I was in the Valley West area of Arcata when I saw what appeared to be a bald eagle flying eastbound just north of Giuntoli Lane. It was big with a white head and black feathers, kind of like the one in the photo below, which I took in August while visiting Alaska.
And since I'm posting photos from one of my old Flickr sites, let's look at the "sixth" photo in that file.

The photo right before that one is of an album I purchased at a thrift store. You all remember Swaggart?
Eagles? Preachers? That reminds me of one of my favorite Cake songs.
