Halloween decorating was late, but I still got some up--if only to enjoy it myself!
Grant wore a mask and used long barbecue tongs to distribute candy to the very tiny number of trick-or-treaters that came to the door--none were really expected due to COVID restrictions. There was one group of about 4-5 younger kids, and an hour later one teenager. Good thing Grant bought the 100+ piece bag of candy---not!
Grandson Cove was a red Sith Stormtrooper and Hunter a mummy. They had a little socially distanced Halloween get together with their cousins and other grandparents in their backyard and did no trick-or-treating, but had fun anyway. Baby grandson Dane had a Halloween onesie that Mama sent video of him wearing.
Pretty Halloween sunset and later we watched the Blue Moon peek out from behind the clouds.
On Friday afternoon I had gone down to the beach while Grant was still working, seeking some Vitamin Sea. While it was sunny and warm at our house 5 miles inland, the fog was hanging off the coast and there were no surfers as the tide was way out.
I caught this quick composition from the bluff before the gentleman passed by on the shore.
I surprised this squirrel a ways down the path, it stood stock still until the first instant I looked away, and then it disappeared under the boulders. There were many tons of rocks piled up below the bluff, trying to keep the shoreline from erasing the pavement and sidewalk above. There was no easy way down to the beach, so I kept walking.
These California Brown Pelicans are huge birds, fishing the shallows. I was standing easily 100 yards away and zoomed in as far as I could. I wish my picture of them flying had come out better. I'll visit again when the walls of the house seem to close in too much and I need another dose of Vitamin Sea.
