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.
Known for a reliable updraft, Ft. Funston hosts some of the worlds top hang gliders. Click through on the link embedded in this image to view the flyfunston link and check out things at Funston from the gliders point of view.
This small colony of Goose Neck Barnacles made camp on a discarded water bottle. Which then washed up on the beach at Ft. Funston, presenting a moral quandary. Save the barnacles by tossing the plastic bottle back in the surf? Or remove the plastic waste from the ocean and cause the demise of this group of Lepas anserifera? Is this how we evolve?
