Sunrise of a new year. Welcome 2016. I think we’re going to get along grandly.

Kimberly is visiting and we went to the beach. She hadn’t been to the beach in far too long, so even though it was cold, she sat and enjoyed the sunset.  I had fun getting pictures for her.  We’ve been hanging out and talking til we’re hoarse, enjoying good foods, watching birds and discussing life. It’s a fabulous way to begin the year.

Sunset Beach is aptly named, no?  This beach can be driven on, and as we were leaving we were a little surprised, though pleasantly so, to see just how many people had joined us to watch the sunset.

Common Merganser
Hooded Merganser
Northern Flicker
Raven

A small raptor that was probably a Sharp-shinned hawk or Coopers Hawk

Also saw a coyote and Harbor Seals.  It was a very good day.
