A Trip To Birch Bay and Blaine


From the waterfront in Blaine, WA you can see across to Whiterock, BC - barely . . .


Let's take a closer look . . .

Oh now I see it - houses - big towering buildings - even the old water tower . . .


Do you see that heron out there among the Canada Geese?

Yes, that heron . . .


Such a beautiful bird . . .




Canada Geese passing through . . .



Must be feeding time . . .



And bath time . . .




Walking about and visiting time . . .









Seagulls - also on the beach at Blaine . . .






Gotta love that new camera!



Good bye!

When I was a child the first time I was ever close to a landed flock of Canadian Geese I was amazed at how big they really were!!
Lovely photos!!

My late husband and I used to stay in a friend's cabin on Drayton Harbor just across from Semiahmoo Resort and watch herons and Canada geese and some funny little puffin-looking birds on the water. We always took a day trip to White Rock and walked along the waterfront. Lots of cutesy little stores and ice cream places - open even in the winter time. Your pictures capture the area beautifully!

I've looked the other way from White Rock to Blaine!
Whenever we drive south I think about going to Birch Bay and then I just step on the gas and move on. One of these days I'll have to stop in.

Love watching birds! Those look chilly!

Enjoy your winter!

Lovely photos. The Canadian Geese have finally left as the Missouri finally froze over with our recent below zero weather. They usually aren't around in January so it was fun seeing them flying around in formation.

What a fun day. Your photos are exceptional. That is a great camera. And you certainly know how to use it well. Thanks for taking us on your photo journey.

My mothers parents used to live in a house in White Rock overlooking the water. I remember sitting on their glass and screened porch and watching the ships go by and the sunsets...it was beautiful. Thanks for the memories!

Your "goodbye" shot made me laugh Jo! There's a lot of good energy on that beach, love seeing all the birds' comings and goings. ~Lili
