2/7/2018 Neighbor's yard across the street. Family of
deer. One with an injured leg. The neighbor's pet cat interacts with the
A bit of face to face time between the deer and the cat.
The neighbor's pet cat sprints for a more secure observation point. Cats. domestic and
wild, are always looking for a strategic edge.
edits for size
above: three shots of the deer with injured leg. 2/7/2018
2/20/2018 A bit of snow
The snow remained until 2/22/2018.
The down river shot, again. Fog. Rain.
The down river shot, again. Sun. Clouds. Near sunset.
On Hwy 101 at the North end of the bridge on the North Fork Willapa River.
Above 5 shots; Geese on Willapa. Shots taken from the bridge over the
(not as large)
Above: Birds and Chimney. Windy. Sunny. Cloudy....and later that day,
rain - light but propelled by the brisk wind. The birds, Starlings, I believe.
About 60% size of a crow. They feed off the ground and especially in the
marsh land that is found along the banks of the Willapa.
Relics from the past
The downriver shot, yet again.
Low tide and mud on the Willapa.
On the bridge.

Left: Mallard Duck in flight. Taken in Raymond, alongside hwy 101 in
a swampy little drainage ditch.
Cat in open field.
High tide. Overcast. Breezy. Low forties. Reflection of a chain link fence.
It's overcast. The air is still for this moment. Temperature is in the high
forties. No rain. Quiet.
Left: A Western Grebe swimming and fishing.
Left: A male Mallard duck swims along the river bank.
Could this be Jonathan Livingston Seagull?
Across the street. A snaggy old apple tree that could use some
maintenance. But the property owners are not around.
These sign post mounting brackets. My (faulty) memory suggests that at one
machine shop or another I may have made some of these. Hence the photos.
Looking East on the North Fork of the Willapa and a pair of Canadian
Geese remain in the foreground.
Looking West on the North Fork of the Willapa.
above 4photos; saw mill (Weyerhaeuser) It is Saturday and a maintenance
crew is at work around the office. The apparent log / lumber inventory
suggests that business continues.

It's a Tuesday and the sawmill is in operation.
Under the bridge. North Fork of the Willapa R. at Raymond.
Bridge is Hwy 101
The sun has yet to burn through the cloud cover, but it tries. No shadows
These are growing wild on the land under the bridge.
A pair of Canada Geese. These (this same pair, I believe) have been
hanging around since February.
I took another walk under the bridge and down onto the mossy 'tundra' at the
river bank. Today turned out to be sunny in the afternoon hours. The
air was still. It felt warm in the sun. Spring. During this
interval I saw no waterfoul at the river, yet there are those tracks in the
above 4th photo.
Dandylion. They're popping up everywhere.
Above: An Osprey at work over the Willapa River.
A rare colorful sunset. The most purple in the sky I've seen since moving here a year
ago. Tripod shot.
5_17_2018 From the balcony
Full greenery. Hand held. Wide angle.
It begins to seem as if the sun will burn off the cloud cover.
18:14 But no, it goes the other way. Cloud cover wins.
