Having nothing really new to say, I thought I'd add in some old photos today, much like Elephants Child and Highriser and others do, on Sunday calling it Sunday Selections.
First off, some photos from the last trip to the north coast, with cats. That was on April 4, seems like years ago now, and I took Miss D and Slurpy for dental care. As usual, I was worn out and sought out a parking lot for sleep.
|South Jetty ocean overlook from Fort Stevens State Park|
|Wetlands to the north of the parking lot, still show signs of last summers wildfire in the area|
|A couple of crows gather nesting material|
|At the Peter Iredale shipwreck beach, also in Ft. Stephens State Park, the wreck is diminishing, as it erodes away.|
|And yet, with erosion, more of the ships spine is visible|
|Crab shells in the sand|
|These are likely from molt.|
|Freight ship on the Columbia River|
|American Empress Steam Powered Cruise Ship, at dock|
|The ship is beautiful but the cruises are vastly expensive, running over $3500 for about 9 days. Way out of reach for the likes of me, but I can admire the ship's beauty.|
We've not had much sun yet in Oregon, just a few days of blasting heat, instead of a gradual transition from winter into spring and summer. It's dismal, this constant rain and gray. But there have been dramatic sky moments!
There are a lot of sheep raised in this valley.
Well, that's it for older photos, although I took the last sky photo just today.
Lucy and Pepper will be going off to get their medical care, dentals if needed, all that, next week. The fundraiser for them, both old gals from the trailer park, is going good, shy only about $100 from the goal to cover the costs.
Thank you so much to all who have contributed! It's so kind of you to help these old gals out.
Lastly, the gray female I trapped in Albany Friday morning, whose feeder relinquished her, is doing quite well in foster with Felines First, looks like. She LOVES cat treats.
