Along the Slough

I wrote about our day at Moss Landing, 
but there was a bit more to add to the day.  
We like to drive home along Elkhorn Slough.  
Lots of birds 
and there's just something about the marshes 
that I love.


There's a long path that follows the shore
(and as always, 
you can click on any image for a larger version).





 the path is lined with posts 
that show the signs of years of tides


But mostly I'm drawn to the mud flats


At the end of the path is an elevated boardwalk




And of course there are birds,



Egrets,


and shorebirds.


There's also a railroad track


As a final shot, 
I loved the look of the locks they use 
to close the trail at night.


It was a truly perfect day,
reminding me once again 
that

Egrets, I've had a few. But, then again, too few to mention.

Diane would love your lock picture. She, too, loves rusty things. Love your bird shots.

Great scenery Kate. I don't blame you for liking that area.
By the way, Happy Anniversary.
