Priceless . . .

This was taken on the beach down the road from my place last night and the look on that eagle's face while he watched the fox steal a fish scrap was absolutely priceless!

Today I drove the pass with my sister then we went out to Morris Cove where we saw porpoises, whales, seals and eagles. Sis got too close to an eagle nest and got dive bombed and took a wing to the back of the head and - trust me, this sounds bizzare but I will post a photo - a three and a half foot fish with bright blue eyes and a mouth of teeth swam up on the beach and I had to make several attempts to get it back in the water. I'll research and find out what kind of fish it was - it looked almost like a marlin but I thought those were a southern species . . . .

All in all a great day, we met up with Goldfish for supper and headed to the Crap Pot Deli for king crab and avacado club sandwiches - yum!

Steve,
I hope that you can delete the first comment that is on this blog. It is certainly something that does not belong on the internet. Great pictures. I told you a short time ago that you would see unusual things while your sister was up there. Have a great time. Love.
Dad

What an AWESOME photo! I'm surprised that eagle didn't take a hunk out of that fox's nose!
