On the way to Grandma's house

Conversations of our upbringing brought about rebelliousness!

Look closely, there are whales breaching. We saw lots!

"Why don't you get a job"  he said! "Hell, you get a job and work make four or five dollars an hour, you could get a savings account, pretty soon you'll never have to work again." I said "hell, that's what I'm doing right now!"

Utah Phillips  (sorry, but intil I get a job, you may have to hear this often!)

Seals & Whalers Cabin

After lunch we headed on and saw this baby seal chasing mom up into the bull kelp. She was not in the mood to play, so baby entertained himself with a bull kelp. 

 Perhaps silkies?

Furry trees along trail

Weird centipede

"Whales being warm- blooded mammals, which breath as we do, could, in principle, live on land, but if a whale were on land, it's organs would be crushed under its own weight." Diane Ackerman The Moon By Whale light
