Flight from Redwood Shores



A month-long contract job consisting of twelve-hour days in Redwood Shores has just finished, which means I can finally sleep again.



The best part of this occasional gig, besides being able to pay bills, is eating lunch outside on the deck of the Redwood Shores Public Library above.



It overlooks a tidal slough from the San Francisco Bay which is a marvel for watching birds, with different species feeding depending on how much water is covering the mud flats...



...including improbably graceful cranes who look like imaginary creatures.

When we were kids (probably in 1969-70) my mother used to take us to a McDonald's in somewhere Marin because she could watch birds from the parking lot, which was on a lagoon. I remember the egrets and the herons.

That egret in the reflection of the library is a fantastic shot.

Glad you survived this working thing ...

Dear Jan: Thanks, though I'd characterize my survival as "just barely."
