I spend my day watching water and birds.

Today, the light changed swiftly.

Thirty seconds later:

I made a quick trip down the line to Exmouth--where I should go more often, for all kinds of reasons, the sea chief amongst them--and encountered a young gull. Usually, I hear a young gull before I see it. This was no exception.

And by 3:40, the sun was lowering. One good thing about our crazy early sunsets is the excellent light we have all day long--and particularly at either end of the day.
