Just a few pics from our Memorial Day weekend outing on Saturday. The beach was blessedly uncrowded because it had been cold and rainy earlier in the day. Every one was doing very low flights for some reason, including the seagulls. My favorite of the day:
We found a stranded baby seal late in the day and stood watch for awhile. That gave Carly a lot of time to make friends.
She was her normal friendly self today, not the flirty, lovestruck teenager she has been this spring. Her intense “coming of age” seems to be coming to an end. Her excessive grooming of a “brood patch” and nipping at her wing feathers has thankfully stopped also. Here you can see her big fuzzy belly.
