Bumped into this pack of friendly Bernese Mountain doggies on the bluff the other day. They were enjoying themselves at Funston after a ride on the Big Dog Bus! They were big, big dogs with lots of smiles to go around!
This Pink Barnacle made its home atop an agreeable Sand Dollar, which was then found at Ft. Funston. Such a circular carpool companion for the pinkest of barnacles way out west. Ride ’em Pink Barnacle! YeeeeeHawww!
Found @ Ft. Funston. Winter storms wash the streets clean of all sorts of things. City looks nice, but the beach suffers, along with all the critters that call the intertidal zone at Ft. Funston home. If people could see what their careless actions lead to, perhaps they would decide against tossing that ciggy butt into the street, or throwing that styrofoam cup (they still make those???) out their car window.
On a rare warm weekend day, people from all over the Northern Peninsula convene at the beach. Dogs and their walkers, fishermen, women and children, surfers, boarders, and hang gliders all revel in the coastal life for a day.
These mossy growths inhabit the vertical cement walls of the Battery Davis at Ft. Funston. Not really sure what they are, lichen, moss, I don’t know! Do any of you? Thought they brought a pleasing composition and color mix to the walls of this former gun site.
