The first birds that we saw and heard on the beach two nights ago were these: black oystercatchers. The red beak stands out, but if they are standing still, they blend with the rocks! Listen to their wonderful call here: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black_Oystercatcher/overview. When I hear the call, I know to look for them at the edge of the water.
Soft colors in the cold morning.

Good morning. This is not Mount Fuji, but it reminds me of so many gorgeous paintings of Mount Fuji.
This is Mount Rainier, taken yesterday morning very zoomed in, from the field in front of the hospital. Our small hospital has the most gorgeous view.
Blessings and joy to all.
