Little Crabs

Little crab in the water at Tracyton, Washington.

I was hoping to kayak today and for a variety of reasons, it did not work out. I went to the local boat launch anyway and saw that the tide was so far out that I would not have wanted to launch anyway. With such large tides, I have to pay more attention to them if I want to kayak. I was able to see some crabs in the streams flowing into the inlet. See picture at the beginning of this post.

While there I took a couple pictures of the gulls and noticed an eye issue with one gull. I thought I was seeing a new species for me because its eye looked different. After loading the photos, it appears to me that it is a common species (glaucous-winged gull) with an eye issue.

Perhaps a glaucous-winged gull with an eye issue.

I got this image just as the glaucous-winged gull was taking off.

Recently, we had some guests from Florida and took them to Poulsbo to look at the seals. While there we saw this cute little boat and a float plane took off.

Dart is having so much trouble walking that he is breaking my heart. He has a problem with one of his legs and it cannot get traction, so we must have carpets everywhere he wants to walk. I have always loved his one eye that is brown and blue and tried to get close up pictures recently. It’s hard to do with the reflection in the eye, but this is the best shot I got.

Dart’s beautiful eye.
