Fantasy Island

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 16 May 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Cormorants were flying into and out of the trees on that little island. The ever present sea gulls were gliding around, too. There are some lovely inlets along Cape Flattery, the northwestern tip of the Olympic Peninsula.
