Golden Stuff

This is Golden Week, which means I get a lot of days off. I intend to sail like crazy and indeed do on Saturday. Then the wind gets up and the sea goes into peril  zone.

Great weather but peril at sea.

So I go and look at things.

The tide is still like totally far out. The Scaffie is beached.

I go out to talk to her and promise that we will go for a gallop tomorrow. I spy Pacific Golden Plovers. It is Golden Week. It all makes sense.

Now, this is a really exciting photo! The plover on the right has its summer plumage whereas the one on the left is right in the middle of the change.
