~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #129: Favorite images from 2020 ~


In mid-March, Creighton, Jello and I were enjoying time at our condominium at the Breakers in Long Beach, when Washington Governor Inslee, issued a stay in place decree. We compared the coronavirus case-count/death-count for Clark County (145/8) and Pacific County (0/0) and decided to stay right where we were.

While the weeks and months spun out, we felt blessed to be in this beautiful wide open expanse of marshes, dunes and beach. Winter faded to spring, bringing a wide array of migrating and nesting birds to the area.

Walking to the beach and along the shorelines every day, I had many opportunities to photograph resident Bald Eagles. On rainy days I only had my iPhone camera, yet even with it I was able to get shots I liked.

On Memorial Day weekend, Pacific County was approved to open at phase two, and we headed back to Vancouver for the summer. In September, we returned to the Peninsula for extended stays and continue to do so to the present.

September, Brown Pelicans return from summer in the Arctic.

Creighton, Jello and I wish you all good health and a year of hope and joy in 2021.

Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate onward. Mask-up and stay safe.šŸ¾
