saturday critters

passed this little terror on my walk, he came out of nowhere barking like crazy.  I didn't see him at first but his bark got my attention and it caught me by surprise, I wasn't ready for him.  I think my heart skipped a beat. :)

it gets gathered up and hauled away.  Where and why, I have no idea.

this area is usually covered in seaweed when high tide comes and goes,  A storm will sometimes deposit the seaweed up on the road.

on Monday we went to phaxe 2.  We can now go anywhere in our county.  We have to wear face masks if we ride on the bus plus also in crowded places where social distance can't be done.  Libraries can open but our county's is not opened and playgrounds can open but this one is still locked up.
