Today, we went to the flea market for the last time. I'm definitely disappointed, but I heard today that there is going to be something happening at the Watsonville Fairgrounds, which would also be OK. It's a shame, though, because I always thought it was cool that we had a drive in right in town.
Pat and Molly went to the flea with us today. We had dinner with them last night. Dotty is getting big. She is almost 6 months old. She really likes dogs and she was laughing out loud at Tiki. She is so cute!

I was feeling very guilty about this, so on the way home I decided to just pick up the phone and call her. So I did and after some embarrassing comments on my part She invited me over and I ended up stopping by after work. I am so glad I did. Dante is so adorable and everyone is definitely very happy. Can't wait to see more of them soon.

One of the things I really like about nature photography is seeing new things that I've never noticed before. This Green Heron, for example. I snuck up on it under the dock near the Crow's Nest, but it flew to some rocks about 20 feet away. I went back up on top of the dock and got this shot.
I also spotted a Great Blue Heron in the same area, and got some nice shots even though the light wasn't ideal.
I've never seen so many crabs out on the rocks. they'd come out to catch some sun after the rainstorm, I think. Maybe they were eating something:
I think that's what the two herons were after, after all.

Don’t get me wrong, these tendencies, especially in language and communication, and to some extent relationships, are probably also my greatest strength and have allowed me to achieve success academically and professionally. But I sometimes feel like my mind is constantly working overtime to do everything right and that gets tiresome.
