Wave Watchin’ With the Cormorants


After our chores and a few errands around town today – we set out for Nelscott Beach in the middle of  Lincoln City, Oregon.  The Pacific Ocean was pulled back for Low Tide revealing lush beds of Agates, Jasper, Sea Glass, Petrified Wood and Fossils. – Which – Keeps the boys busy while I play with the Brandt’s Cormorants and take photos of the waves. Winking smile



They never move.  Amazing to watch the waves stack up. Makes me wish I was sitting out there with them!




They were busy preening and I asked Nate to get their attention so I could get a good shot. He made some sort of Chortle and. . . .


Almost all of them looked up.  Which is funny, Cause guess where we are standing?


Way back here.  This is where the waves come – surge and flow, surge and flow.

We have a bucket full of great finds in the car. Maybe after tomorrow’s Great Beach Cleanup photos I’ll post our agates, or maybe on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/Petra.School

Are you enjoying your Spring Break?  Nate said this morning he felt sorry for everyone here on Spring Break because they have to go back to school on Monday.  That made me laugh.  Guess who might not be laughing around 10:30 on Monday?  I hope we will be – but while we talk about fractions. Winking smile  Are you enjoying our Spring Break Photos?

    It’s pretty amazing that just a bit ago (before I got online) dd was reading Island of the Blue Dolphins out loud to her brother and she came across ‘cormorants’ in the book. Personally, since I’m not well educated in much lol, had no idea what it was. I hop online and not even looking for what it was, you post this- with PHOTOS to boot! How awesome is that?! Thanks for educating me yet again 🙂 🙂 🙂
