I hope you had an enjoyable break if you took one. When we recently took time off to meet relatives and gather. We found time to take a wonderful walk by a nature preserve in Alameda, Ca. at the Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary.
If it hadn't of been so hazy with a layer of fog I would of taken more pics of the SF view.We walked all the way down from where we stayed and followed this path to the sanctuary.
I managed to see some wildlife in many forms on the water, logs and land.
A blue heron on a log sitting in solitude.
A grey spotted squirrel hiding among the ice plants.
There were so many birds around this preserve. There were so many little plovers along the shore, they are so fast I only got a few good shots.
A plover on Crown Beach.
And some of them seemed to just pose for me, like this regal brown seagull, at least that is what I call him.
I just loved the way the sun light hit and the one strand of hair blew into Sammie's face. She loves nature and loved our outing at the beach. I can't wait to share a few more fall photographs and soon some new art!
