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.|

|The Excellence has returned to port and is about to be|

finds for the gulls.

|Rare beach fun day for Seattle!|

|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.
