Lovely weekend

On Friday night my husband and I went to to take a walk and do a little bird watching and photographing at the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge near Table Bluff. Even in overcast weather, it’s lovely to walk along Hookton Slough between the large heron and crane rookery at the foot of the bluff (great blue herons, black-crowned night herons, great egrets, white egrets, cattle egrets) and the cormorant colony nesting on Teal Island and beyond.

On Saturday, we went to the farmers market in Arcata, got lovely produce and meat (those strawberries from Fortuna were divine!), had lunch at Humboldt Brews. I’ve loved farmers markets since I was three; they feel so vivid and exciting.

Yesterday we went to see the new Pixar animation movie, Up! and were pleasantly surprised.  I really liked it, and yes, we both shed tears.  The movie is full of good quotable bits, clever observations, and little send-offs.

And under the full moon, we went to the Samoa Cookhouse to do a little night photography and light painting.  I hope a few shots will come out — but I won’t know until the film is developed.
