A Little Nap in the Grass

I had the joy of having a little time off last week, much needed medicine for the stressed adrenal glands after a health scare. (Everything's OK, by the way). Beth and I went to CA, where she had some leadership development work for a couple of days. But before her work we had a little play time at Point Reyes National Seashore. Here's just a few of the fabulous sights we saw:

Turns out it was in the grassy gulley on the edge of the paved path that went down to the water, and thanks to the distracting view of Drake's headlands ahead, we walked right past this adorable, once nearly extinct wonder of the natural world while walking down the path. We didn't notice it's soft eyes (or enormous girth) until we walked back up the hill.
