Set the anchor, scan the shore to check out the neighborhood, and STOP! put the skiff in the water 'cuz there's a bear on the beach.
There were fish jumping all over the inlet, running up the creek to spawn. Waterfalls gurgled and splashed, providing background music. Eagles and heron glided above while kingfishers darted from tree to tree. But it was really all about the bear today, our welcoming committee.
