pictures that were never posted

These are pictures that were never posted onto the blog. Not because there's anything wrong with them, but simply because I was too lazy (or just forgot) to post them. Most are from this fall.

Below, an eel poking its head out of a glass sculpture at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. We visited the aquarium last September.
Me in front of jellyfish
A flurry of fast moving fish (say that 5 times fast)
People looking at the fish (or fish looking at the people)

Us at the Wolf Eel Cafe

Me interacting with the sea otter. Wherever I moved my head, he followed. Clearly these are very intelligent animals.

These are pictures from inside the top of the lighthouse.
This is the extremely powerful light fixture that illuminates the lighthouse.

A dead jellyfish washed up on the beach

Back on the ranch.

My friends
A western fence lizard ( aka a blue belly) and, in front of his nose, a western fence lizard's skin (probably his). When I took the picture, I didn't see the skin.

A Banded Alder Borer(zebra bug)
A creepy spider

praying mantis. Here is a cool mantis video(but you have to watch to the end)
In the Umpqua River we found some kind of wheel, possibly a paddleboat wheel or it was part of some farm equipment, which would make sense because we're on a farm. and way back when there was a sawmill on the property
