This weeks assignment for Project 52 is “Road Trip”. Are you kidding me? I live in Oregon, I live for road trips.
I watched the weather closely all week and as it got closer to the week-end and the weather looked like it was going to be beautiful, I knew where we were going.
Karen left work early and by 4:30 we were beach bound. We drove to Newport and the first place I headed was down on the old waterfront where the sea lions gather to bark at the people passing by.
Last time I was there, they were about 20 lined up below the pier. Yesterday when we got there all of them were out on a jetty, too far for my 200mm reach and do any justice. Except this guy and his buddy.
Every once in a while he’d open one eye just to make sure I was still there and then he would change his pose. He was beautiful.
And then, I noticed his lips.
