We’re seeing hundreds of dead dungeness crabs wash in on Oregon north coast beaches and we’re not entirely sure why! They are not molts (the result of a process where crabs shed or molt their shell) which can often be found on our beaches.
We know seasonal upwelling has brought them ashore, but we’re wondering if any local marine biologists know, or have an idea why these animals are dying?
The sunrises have been filtered through a fair amount of upper level smoke the past few days. It makes for red skies, but I miss our usual illuminated cloud sunrises versus these. Still, there’s an element of beauty born of these particulates of destruction.
Weekend Bliss in the great PNW! May your summer be full of beauty and joy, there is so much to be thankful for! Here are some pics of our weekend adventure ...
