Semiahmoo Sights

We took a trip to Semiahmoo near the Canadian Border yesterday. The weather was amazing. We had everything from beautiful blue skies to black skies and hail. This type of weather makes for great pictures..

Eagles in our midst

Cindi and I are just hanging out watching the Seattle Sea Chickens try to beat the lowly Detroit Lions. The Bald Eagles in our back yard are much more entertaining!

The Ducks are back in town!

I look forward every fall for return of ducks here on Ray Nash Bay. Today I saw (and took pictures of) Bufflehead's, Common Mergansers (pictured above), Barrows Goldeneye's and Mallards.

Lunch walk

I took the pooch out for a walk today at lunch time. It is sure nice living in Gig Harbor where you literally just have to walk out your front door to see amazing sights and sounds. Enjoy!
