The horizon….

“Paradise was always over there, a day’s sail away. But it’s a funny thing, escapism. You can go far and wide and you can keep moving on and on through places and years, but you never escape your own life. I, finally, knew where my life belonged. Home.”

Travel & Nature: Islotes Island Sea Cave

Los Islotes SwittersB

Los Islotes Island & Sea Cave (Baja Sur, Mexico)

Sea Lion

The beautiful water lapped up against the cliff wall of a nearby island. I was exploring with a sea kayak and saw a male sea lion lounging on a low rock shelf with several females. I attempted to get near, paddle, hold the camera, snap a clear shot and not get pushed up into the wall. Of course, I had one opportunity…missed the target (right edge)…attempted to recover and the Sea Lions moved into the water. Oh well.

Loreto, Mexico (La-ret-o….not La-ray-to) is a lovely little town in Baja California that has less tourism than the other larger Baja townships. The Spanish and French influences are visible. The streets are quieter and the pace perfect for the mind.

“Multnomah County Library offers free and legal music downloads; one of the country’s oldest eagles dies”


The Oregonian lead jumped out at me. Wow, who died? Was it Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Timothy Schmit, Don Felder, Randy Meisner, Bernie Leadon? I mean I was suddenly sitting in Todos Santos in the Hotel California on a bar stool listening to ‘….on a dark desert highway…”  Ok, I hadn’t had my coffee yet.

Nope, the odd headline was about a Bald Eagle (no a real Bald Eagle…a bird!). Damn, odd bit of reporting but I thought it was fitting for my 2,000 post here at SwittersB. Certainly, along the way, I have reported equally fitting minutiae. Happy Valentine’s Day too!

“Sad news out of Alaska this morning. The Anchorage Daily News reports on the death of a bald eagle considered one of Alaska’s oldest — indeed, one of the country’s oldest — eagles of its kind. The paper reports that the 25-year-old bird was killed last month when it was electrocuted.
“It would be, based on the bird-banding record that I’ve seen, one of the top 10 oldest birds ever recorded,” said Robin Corcoran, a wildlife biologist from the Kodiak Island National Wildlife Refuge. The eagle’s death was first reported by the Kodiak Daily Mirror.   The death was of high interest to raptor biologists, who have no other way besides recovered bands to confirm the ages of mature wild eagles.” The Oregonian
