Mom came out for her birthday and we toured Elkhorn Slough on a pontoon boat.? The captain knew much and still shared excitement about the tremendous flocks of gulls, just in off their migration, and the daily changes of that nature place. Mom loved it. On the way back the fog rolled in mystifying everything except us – ensconced in life jackets, sipping hot chocolate and conversing to keep our bubble of civilized strong around the boat, even yet feeling the weight of the wildness seeping in, quiet and gray.
