Finally a Post!!

It's been a while since I posted. It's been busy here, and just recently, we lost two good friends. But I am ok, and actually have a finish to share. It was started long ago which you can probably tell by the yarn! And it's done at last. Hurrah!

This past week we went back to one of our favorite spots to celebrate my birthday. It was extremely low tide at Cannon Beach, OR, which was really interesting.

The closest rock was covered with barnacles, and we saw lots of them everywhere. The ranger told us that because there are so few starfish, the barnacle population has exploded.

I don't think we'd ever gotten this close to Haystack Rock.

It was fun to see sea anemones up close.

This starfish was tucked under some rocks. There used to be starfishes everywhere, but now they are hard to find. The ranger said they are making a comeback though.

Lots of sea birds live on Haystack rock including puffins which nest there. At this point the birds had spotted an eagle and took off.  Apparently the eagles and brown pelicans like to eat the baby birds. 😥


That's it for now. I will try to post sooner next time. At the moment I am doing the Miss May KAL which is keeping my needles busy, but I actually need to finish something else soon. Have a great week!
