The Way to End a Perfect Day

After spending the morning observing the shorebirds at Bottle Beach, I knew that the rest of the day would be anti-climatic, but it would have been a sin to leave the coast at noon on a day as beautiful as that day so we drove up the road to Westport to see what we would find in the harbor. 

We didn’t find anything we haven’t seen in previous trips, but I’ll have to admit that I still enjoy seeing Sea Lions,

even though most fishermen see them as pests and would like to drive them out of the marina.

There’s less hostility towards Harbor Seals,

probably because they eat a lot less fish and are “cuter.”

Finally sighting a Common Loon in breeding plumage

after several fruitless visits this year brought the day to a delightful close.
