Find a little slice of heaven
Dream you were fishing
We arrived, and the sign read
“Only Permitted Vehicles allowed”
Where’s the storm
Will enjoy the thrill of the crashing surf
Onto and through the rocks
The colorful stone and sand
Only a few will find
If you dare to explore
The rugged California coast
Along came a sudden stinging sensation on the side of my leg.
It quickly went away so I returned to the task at hand.
A few minutes later another sting.
Now this, is starting to get my attention.
I reached for the bug spray in my bag
and sprayed my exposed skin.
It only worked a few minutes when another sting.
Another spray on the skin now that should due the trick. Not to be outdone by a few insects,
I continued to paint.
Yet another sting this time I had to pay attention to
what was trying to get my attention.
Just a small long black fly and I swatted it away.
Oh, It would not be received as I had intended.
More troops arrived now I was surrounded.
What now? Well this is my last resort.
I just I started spraying the bugs instead of me.
Well, What can I say it was the last resort.
I quickly finished and escaped to the car.
Wetlands in winter. As a meandering stream flows through to the bay.
A heron quietly waits for a fish to swim downstream.
