It was hard to get away from the Humboldt Bay area. The weather was warm and sunny, the surf was pounding, and there was lots of wildlife and other things going on. We drove down onto the 4 mile long spit leading to the south jetty.
Waves were rolling in, even into the sheltered river mouth. Seals or sea lions were lounging on many of these buoys in the channel. They must be going deaf because the buoys also have large bells that ring continuously in the rough water. I could hear them from a half mile away, so I can only imagine the volume up close!
It wasn’t busy, but there were a few boats coming and going. The coast guard cutter was coming back into port …
The Pelican air force was on patrol.
Other fishers were out as well.
Others were just sitting in the sun – waiting for a meal to approach..
That’s enough photos for this post – and I’ve got enough left over for another post or two. Stay tuned.
