It's so rare to see someone with an old hardcover book.

Vancouver Island

On the beach.

Some important items were found.

Seaweed bulb.

Triangular prism!

This muscle mussel had a lot going on.

This guy, not so much.

These barnacles live at our house now. I had fun scrubbing them with a toothbrush.


In a Mexican coffee importer's shop in Vancouver:

Yes! A beaver doorknocker for our future home!!

His back-leg-n-tail lifts up for knockin'.
