This is Not a Bee

Halibut Point: Bees Bees I’m covered in Bees. A hundred shots of bees and the bees are all out of focus. I think they were all bumble bees and they were bumbling so much they were fuzzy. This bug was in focus.

One fuzzy bee in focus! Click on the photos to get up close and personal with my fuzzy bee and bug. Click one more time to see the fuzzy head. How does this thing fly? The wings are attached to her head and her ass is humongous compared to the wings. It did fly away.

Three Ocean Sunfish in one day?

Ocean Sunfish #3

Not one, not two, but three ocean sunfish basking on the surface from Thachers to Halibut Point. The last time I saw more than one sunfish in a day was 1972. I didn’t see a striped bass for the next 12 years. And it was also wall to wall jelly fish. Very clear water, nothing but jellyfish.

Welcome to the late Ken Kesey and son Zane’s magic bus Further

Florida visitors Sharon St Clair and husband Chuck King rolled into Gloucester about four weeks ago. By chance, they stopped into Charlie's Place and bumped into the Merry Pranksters. This trip, made by son Zane Kesey, replicated the journey from CA to NY made by renowned author Ken Kesey (One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, starring Jack Nicholson) in 1964.

Fifty years later, on September 24, 2014, they came to Gloucester, and had breakfast at Charlie’s Place https://www.facebook.com/pages/Charlies-Place/111697215533360. My friends were there…

Sharon photographed the Furthur crew at breakfast. She and husband Chuck gave them their table for the bus crew. Ken Kesey’s son Zane sits center waving his hand. Sharon and Chuck leave tomorrow for home. I got to know what wonderful and generous people they are… and like me, they’re adventurous. Fair winds and smoothe seas, my friends forever.
