I woke up this morning to blue skies, sunshine and about 13 degrees of warmth outside, all the perfect ingredients for a beach walk! I wanted to wait until late afternoon when I knew the tide was out and the sun would be hitting the beach at the perfect angle to find sea glass, hoping for a little blue piece! Sure enough, my trick worked and I saw it a couple of feet in front of me with the help of the sun making it shine off the sand!
As I continued down the beach and headed up toward the point, I heard them in the distance, their distinctive loud, deep honk combined with a lazy bark echoing off the banks; SEALS!
I only saw these two, but I have a feeling there were a couple of others out there because of the way they kept looking around and barking out. I am almost certain that these are Grey seals and while they stir up a lot of controversy in the media, I think they are a pretty amazing sight to see! Albeit, after a while they can get slightly boring, for it seems all they do is sunbath or push each other off rocks for entertainment!
Just as I thought my walk was finished and I was heading back to the house, I came upon two Blue Herons (or Great Blue Herons, depending on your preference) looking for their dinner among the bedrock. Unfortunately, despite my efforts to be quiet, I scared them off, but not before capturing a shot of one in flight over the water!
