As you might have guessed by the exciting title, I had an adventure yesterday. Lots of fun stuff. Thankfully, the weather decided to cooperate for once. 😛
So, Squink and I tagged along with our Auntie A’s little explorer group. They needed a few extra helpers since the chosen location was a trail at Washington Park that, to the uneducated, looked like it went straight off a cliff. It didn’t, really. Just a really really steep trail downhill.
Anyway, we were watching for seals, otters and porpoises. We saw about three seals, countless porpoises and one otter that I did not have my camera prepared for in time.
This was one of my favorite photo trips. 🙂 It was very breezy and ocean-y and nice. I was whistling Horatio Hornblower’s theme to myself almost the whole time. 😛
Enjoy the pics!
Some trees as seen from higher up along the trail.
The aforementioned trail.
Our little explorers group.
The view over the edge where we were watching.
I really like that one. (I even got a little seagull in the picture!)
Waves on the rocks.
An uncentered porpoise.
A trail Squink and I explored with the town of Anacortes in the background.
Hope you enjoyed! Ever been to Washington, park or otherwise?
What was your favorite picture?

Wowie! Love the pics! Uncentered porpoise – lol!! 😜
An artistic title. 😉 Maybe for the fair or something.
And my fave was zooming in on the seal’s face. Looks something like Bullwinkle… 😉
Ooo, these pictures are so pretty! I love the one of the seal and the shoreline. 😉
Thanks, Greta! 😀 Yeah, mom said if she zoomed in on the seal face it looked like our dog. 😛
lol What’s your dog’s breed?
He’s an Irish wolfhound/lab. Though more lab looking. 😛
Aww, he sounds adorable! 😀
I thought the seal was an otter at first. And porpoises! 😀 That makes me so happy. Otters are such fun animals. 😀 As usual, I think your photography is gorgeous, and it’s so beautiful… One of the photos looked like the river Anduin from “Lord of the Rings.” 😀
I know! My aunt thought he was an otter too at first. 😛 That was the first one that got curious about us.
*grins really big* Thanks! 🙂 Hey, that’s cool. Which picture?
The one where it’s the lake, framed by trees. 😉
Oh cool! 😀 *is happy and hugs you*
Yeah, I’m filing that one away for a possible fair picture. A print is hanging by my bed at the moment so I can keep looking at it when I want to. 😛
