What a sharp contrast a day makes! Two days of bright sun, today is colder, damp, and windy.
The birds are all huddled on this side of the wood debris, shielding themselves from the wind…until something comes along and…
…off they fly. Don’t know what scared them, but it did not take long for them to settle down again.
Saw the Sea Lion again, this time it hung around in the same place…comes up for air, goes back down, comes up, goes down… I think he must have been catching some ZZzzzs down under.
These Redhead Ducks tried to see how many ducks can fit on a small piece of dry sand….but the Heron, upper left corner, would have nothing to do with them.
Of course little missy (Skruffy) just had to come along with daddy (that's what dogs do when you say, "You want to come along girl?") … but she did not want to get her head all wet. Having her on my lap, keeping her covered, and trying to keep the camera dry while taking pictures is what I call “A Fun Hour”.
With moving day tomorrow, I told Marcia I would take her to dinner over in La Push. Now La Push has one restaurant, and the reviews are a bit difficult for this place. It is called Rivers Edge Restaurant, and it has no website. There are reviews in Yelp, Google, and other places…and they were hit or miss. For the most part I told Marcia that most of the reviews liked the view from inside, liked the food, but the service was “hit or miss”. I would say that this sum up our experience.
The food was real good, but not much “homemade” type of stuff. But it is quality stuff, for that I give them credit. The view from the inside was real good…had it been a nice evening with a nice sunset it could not be beat. But the service was hit and miss. Blond lady that sat us was very nice and pleasant. The rest of the staff were more “dull” with their attitude. As a former restaurant manager I once again saw a place that could be a gold mine, but those running it don’t know how to make it such. However, in a town of some 300 people, it could be worse. Overall we were pleased, and we would return for the food, especially the Clam Chowder Soup which was real good.
After dinner we went up to “Beach One” (they have three beaches, one, two and three). The wind was such that I could hardly get out of the door.
Again, sure a big change from two days ago!
These two guys were out there “trying” to body surf….I think they need some lessons from my Cousin Barbara’s son Matt…
…who surfs along the Northern California coast and just about anywhere else he can take his board. (picture above was taken in 2012 along coast in San Francisco)
Tomorrow we are off to South Beach for a day or two…then we need to get some electricity again.
