Thanksgiving 2008

Every year for the last many, we have gone for a Thanksgiving hike at the Pescadero Marsh up the coast a bit. This year it was overcast and 60F. We stopped at Swanton's for one of their Ollaberry pies.

Then, on to the marsh. This is a nice wetland with some shallow lakes and the Pescadero River meandering its way through.

Lots of birds and the goal was to get some great shots with my new Nikon 70-300mm lense (hmm, see below, house finches, buffleheads and a great white heron, but just OK shots).

There is a nice beach there where the river meets the sea. Building these little driftwood houses is a local tradition.

Those kids had a good time.

These extra Johns keep showing up...
