At Recycle Bookstore I picked up a few books that have been on my mind. The last time I read To Kill a Mockingbird was 8th grade and I can barely remember it. The Little House books were among my favorites back in elementary school, and I'm curious to read them again.
The festival offered a live animal show, so I got a ticket and a good seat in the front. When the woman from the wildlife rescue center said that she was going to show us a crow, I got annoyed. I can walk out my front door and see a crow pretty much any time of day. But it turns out this was a special crow-- it's an albino, and I've never seen anything like it. She was forgiven.
(I read up on how to improve my wildlife photography skills and learned that you should always make sure the animal's eyes are in focus. Unfortunately, my camera settings got screwed up and this was the best shot I could get before the bird was put back in his box. Grrrrr.)
I might not have made it to the beach, but I did have a fun day and I'm glad things turned out the way they did. Tomorrow morning I'm going to head for the coast again and see where I end up.
