Old friends…

Yesterday an old friend asked about One-Foot Fred, who seems like another old friend after all this time, so off I went to Aripeka to see if I might be able to report on how Fred is doing. The last I had heard people hadn’t seen him in a while, and I had even heard that a two-footed great blue had been around so I was afraid Fred had left the area. And a nice sunrise, that would have been nice too.

I asked this young fisherman if he’d seen Fred but he was new to the area and didn’t know Fred’s story. He caught a flounder while we were talking, which he says is unusual for the area. Happily for the flounder he lived to tell the tale.

I stopped at the first bridge and took this shot, happy to see some glow in the sky.
I can never resist this view also, usually the sunrise lights the pastel clouds.
Suddenly there was Fred. I didn’t see or hear him fly over, he was just there. Good to see you Fred, glad to see you are doing well.
Trust the lens ball to take a so-so sunrise and bump it up a bit.
