Cathi and I took the beers to the brew store in Oak Harbor so they could judge them for us. On the way back, we saw these eagles sitting on hay bales in a field next to the road, so we stopped and watched for a while.
There were at least 4 adults and 3 or more juveniles. The two in this photo were having some issues - we finally decided the adult was either ill or very old, and the younger one kept pestering him, but he didn't fly away. The mysteries of nature.
Then we stopped at Fort Ebey State Park, where the waves were quite active, although it was a calm day. We had stopped and bought a picnic, and enjoyed sitting in the sun and collecting stones.
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
Happy Trails, Buzz
