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.
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!
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.

What a great shot of the birds with the reflection of the one in flight in the water. Very cool!

Wow! Is that seal white? So adorable. I want one. LOL Of course, I don't have enough water for him.

You are so lucky to be able to see such wonderful sights Judy. The pelican picture is particularly stunning.
