There's nothing like the month of August for a sense of generosity on the shoreline of Halibut Point. It's a gradual time, warm and slow. Much of man and nature's heavy lifting eases back to a low ebb.
If ever there was a season to haul yourself out of the tides of toil, this is it.
A solitary rock at the edge of the sea makes the perfect place to entertain voices of necessity, self-improvement, and rejuvenation.
Those urgent voices may very well resolve in a leap and a splash.
A leap and a splash lift the winged set to higher panoramic views.
Cormorants, the most enviable of birds, stand, fly, float, and dive along the rim of the sea. They out-swim a fish under water and take to the air.
Well equipped anglers have their jubilant moments.
The convergence of the fishy food chain in August attracts all the hunters that can swim, fly, or drive.
A young bald eagle meets a raucous reception from gulls and crows that normally lord over shoreline delectables.
Seals revel in the abundance.
You have to wonder if the colorful closing of an August day pleases everything with eyes.
