Breakfast for the Great Blue Heron
|I frequently see a Great Blue Heron in this area.
|I stopped and watched for a few minutes.
|Other birds and critters seem to leave them alone.
If you enjoy critters, check out Saturday's Critters where bloggers share their posts. Thanks to Eileen for sharing and hosting.
Fuel on the way ...
|The Global Pilot is a fuel barge.
For scale, note the humans on the front of the barge.
|The Excellence has returned to port and is about to be
refueled. This ship is a part of the Alaska fishing fleet.
It returns here between fishing expeditions.

The high cost of fuel will be passed on to
|And here come the Police!
|I believe the wave was for me, thank you! 😊
|I snap a photo here when starting each walk
mostly to record the sky conditions.
Today is the first full blue sky day in a long while.
|Don't miss the Space Needle
and the bench which is always tempting.
|During today's walk ... very low tide. Lots of easy
finds for the gulls.
|Looking east about half-way to my turn around spot.
|Rare beach fun day for Seattle!
Downtown in the distance.

|Rainier was pretty yesterday too! (June 23)
|I like this pic because it nicely demonstrates SCALE.
Cruse ship vs. motor boat.
|Had to climb a fence to snap this view of
Expedia Group campus.
Barry Diller, billionaire behind Expedia, wanted the
new headquarters building to be shapped like a ship,
being right across from the cruise ship terminal.
