With a shifting sand bar and a colony of harbor seal.

I was here 10 years ago...

And the mouth was at the other end...

The sand bar had shifted like a tongue to the other side.

A decade ago we saw grey whales...

And every pinniped possible in this region.

This time we only saw harbor seals, seagulls, and dead crabs.

Sitting silently for an hour watching was quite enjoyable.

Nice shots.
Sad decline of our world, oceans.
We are old aren't we?
Jackfish?

This is beautiful.. Such a change of pace from your prior posts.

Where is this? It's awesome.
The ocean will eventually drain, & more housing tracks & planned neighborhoods will be built. Cul-de-sac kingdom.

I think they are Grouper fish. Speaking of Grouper fish, check out Grouper, the musician. Her music is amazing. If you're into that ambient/noise/folk thing..

You were on my beach. I just got back from a month there. The beach is owned by the Williams family of which I am one. The fish you show is a red tailed perch and very good eating. Lots of salmon there now as Sept. is good salmon fishing at the mouth. Lots of Indians net fishing there this time of year also.
