Geese this morning . . .

A beautiful, if somewhat overcast, morning walk today. The ocean, beach and wildflowers were much the same as every morning, but a noisy flock of wild geese surprised us by landing close enough so that we could snap a quick picture. The photo shows only a few of the geese near the edge of the Mad River, but we estimated that there were about 80 in the entire group.

It seems that most every morning walk has some kind of small surprise. One of the more memorable was when we came upon a large skunk enjoying grubs in an open area near some new homes overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera with me on that walk, but fortunately we weren't close enough to upset the creature!
