For Wordless Wednesday.
I think this is a Western grebe. Or a Clark’s. There was a pair together down by the water Saturday when it was stormy. They were fishing quite happily.
Together and then one dives.
It was hard to steady the zoomed camera in the wind. Here is without the zoom:
And both dived:
Today’s Mundane Monday #172 theme is windy.
Last night a friend and I attended a reception at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. A beautiful evening and windy. We were welcomed by this wind sock octopus.

Send a link or a comment and I will add your post next week.
And here are some of the denizens of the Marine Science Center:
I am posting this now, because even though it’s 6:28 am on Sunday for me, it’s already 1:28 am on the Kamchatka Peninsula, on Monday! I live more toward the tail end of Monday, so I am deciding to post on Sunday once it is Monday somewhere!
For Mindlovesmisery’s Menagarie Heeding haiku: cooling down.
ferry ride cool down
northwest summer wind water
chill wind blows no good
prayers for all the places on fire and with abnormally hot weather….
Prayers for people and animals and horses in California.
And everywhere else.
For the Daily Prompt: dubious.
I stand on the shore, dubious, while the teams launch out into the sleet.

Yesterday we hiked from North Beach towards Cape George and walked 2/3 of the way. My phone welcomed me to Canada! We were not in Canada, but I think the Vancouver Island cell towers took over.
We were paralleled by a sailboat race. The very low tide was at 1:00 pm, so there were other hikers, picking up the beach glass. I found my first marble! There was a marble factory and you can still find the marbles, some perfect, on glass beach. I gave mine to my friend and then he found a cat’s eye and gave it to me.
The sailboats were going with the tide with the wind behind them and spinnakers up! Not in my photograph, at that point they were dipping south of Protection Island. We started back a little before 1:00 and watched the tide turn. The sailboats returned as well.
What does zoned mean to you? The sailboats were in the zone, with the wind behind and the tide helping. A long race and beautiful…..and this is my last letter for the A to Z.
