    Guess I'll start. Hunting Island Beach a couple of weeks ago. There is an Anhinga on the left side, and a heron on the right middle. Anhinga's will sit on a perch with open wings in attempt to dry their plumage.

    On my almost daily ride through our local park, I recently came across a raccoon peering out of the hollow of a tree.
    I am usually on my trusty Zike. It's not so fast that I miss birds and other wildlife, yet it's speedy enough to get me around several miles of paved paths.

    It is a lot of fun, Emily. Not particularly fast but gets me around the park and I'm getting exercise while paddling. Since it's so flat here in Charleston, a single speed does just fine but if I go somewhere and encounter hills or I go off road then I'd use the 6-speed I own with larger wheels. They're well made and very affordable, in my opinion.

    took some time to visit the manzanar internment camp while here in the desert. there are some greenhouses that i photograph in oxnard that were built by a japanese family just two years before their nursery and farm land were confiscated and they were sent to manzanar. the history surrounding the farm confiscation's is mired in hate, profit greed using false patriotism and white male farmers wanting california's thriving japanese farms. The 76 year old greenhouse's are worse for wear but still structurally sound with most still being used.
    i laid some stones from the farm on the base of the camp cemetery obelisk which has 'soul consoling tower' written in kanji down it's side.

    ....such a sad chapter in history

    2nd and 3rd are from inside the excellent visitor center
