Coastal Leftovers

While looking through our recent photos, I found these four from our last trip down the coasts of Oregon and California that never were posted. Since they're some of my favorites, I thought I'd add them today. (Double click to see better, especially the last one.)
A Great Hiding Spot
California isn't the only place that has big trees. This stump is in Oregon and is a cedar, not a redwood.
Reflections
When Dick took this pelican picture, he didn't realize that he was also catching their reflections, including that of a bird that's not even in the photo. It's a great shot, I think.
Munch, munch...
We've had a few deer in our neighborhood lately, but none were as large as these elk. I'm glad they weren't snacking in our yard!
Peek-a-boo!
And here's another critter that was entertaining us. We had so much fun on this trip that we're heading off again soon for a last fling before the end of summer.
