I feel like a I have found so many treasures since I upgraded to Picassa 3. I have photos that I took but always needed a bit more work to make them presentable. I was digging through my photos today and I found a few I took but I don't think I shared very many of them.
I was walking along the beach and the pelicans had been feeding as the sun was beginning to set. I had my camera when this guy just swooped down and landed. I thought he might have been hurt as he was trembling as I took his photo. I made him so nervous I didn't stay long but walked away. He watched me but never moved.
I was standing on the pier and the seals started swimming in great groups toward this place on the other side where there must have been school of krill or something it was quite a sight to see.
They were swimming to here. This was thousands of birds, seals, and who knows what all. It was a time when I had forgot to bring my binoculars. I wished I could have been able to see what else was out there. It was time for the whale migration so I was hoping to see that.
I was leaning over the top rail of the pier and this guy was beneath me looking up. I am so scared of heights that for me to even stand like that to get picture was tough. I can hardly make myself walk on the pier any more. The cracks just freak my mind out. I make myself do it anyway because I love walking on piers.
This was just before Emilie met Nik. I remember taking this picture and feeling like things were going to change. Little did I know. I took the shot just because I wanted to capture that moment in time when life is just perfect. Little did I know how much more perfect life would be when God brought Nik to our family.
I mentioned yesterday in my post that Ron has been working on the chicken coop he hasn't got to go do his fun stuff. The man who owns this Bonsai Nursery, has a sale in October. We haven't been able to get away. I want to go over there and look at trees. I want Ron to be able to do his Bonsai instead of chicken coops. So you see, why I feel so guilty about that chicken coop. I love going and visiting this place. I love watching Ron's face as he talks to George about trees. It makes me so happy.
I just love looking at the trees when they are in the pots. You know that when you see trees like this it is for show only right? You can't leave them in pots like this or they would die. You have to move them into a different pot and put them outside. That was one thing I learned about Bonsai. They are trees and they have to live outside, that is why if you buy one they die when you try to keep it in the house. I always thought it was because I have a black thumb.
So this was my walk down memory lane today. I am in a need of a beach trip. I really do like the beach best in October. The crowds are gone and the days are just beautiful.
