mare's tails

The wind at Big Lagoon blew the whitecaps like horses' manes and tails.

charging horses

Sometimes waves can look like thundering white horses! This was at Big Lagoon, north of Trinidad, CA., on Nov. 16.

Sunset from my street

There are too many trees around to see much of any sunset from my window, but by running across the street .... and then up a short ravine to the next road ... I got these lovely views and photos last week. Someday I hope to see a sunset fill the sky over the ocean! I've seen sunsets at the beach, of course, but invariably they've just been brushed across the lower sky or, conversely, been blocked from the water by a dark wall of cloud at the bottom.

Feeling Crabby


I would just like to thank this little guy for posing for me. All the rest crawled back up in their shells.


Dinner? ewwwwwww, yuk!

Beach Birds



I've moved close to downtown Houston now, and the good thing about this is that I'm on the side of town close to the ship channel and all the birding trails. Also, I'm only about 40 minutes from the Galveston beaches [it took me about an hour and a half before]. These pics were taken in Galveston.



I went to hike along the birding trails in Seabrook, but it turned into a mosquito fest. I didn't get any good pics from that trip. My hike turned into a jog, and it was an itchy ride home. I'm waiting for cooler weather before I go back. It's still in the 80's around here.



These last two were taken at sunset. The one above looks like they have pink butts :]

4 horses

A woman often brings her four horses to run on Clam Beach in the afternoon. They are so beautiful, especially the two white ones who echo the white waves.

More Jellyfish





These are from Galveston. I'm not sure what kind they are. I've not seen them with the pink markings before.

jellyfish

Clam Beach was littered with jellyfish one day last month. I don't understand why the waves will bring up an abundance of one thing one day, something else another. This one seemed lit from within.
