A break in the action

Today we had passing showers then clearing with rainbows appearing off and on around the harbor. I was in Aberdeen (WA) most of the day at the hospital while a friend had her daily infusion. The view from the parking lot is out over the Chehalis River and Grays Harbor, looking south. I can see all the way out to Westport and Ocean Shores, and watch the bands of rain come sweeping up the river towards me. It's quite a lovely spot to watch the activities of trains, ships, and those who travel the roads below. The sound of children's laughter carries up from the streets below but I cannot see them, though I suspect they are coming from a nearby daycare center.

The ability to pick out the businesses gives me a different perspective than the ground level view I am accustomed to. The smoke/steam from Grays Harbor Paper is a constant, allowing me to easily watch the changes in the wind direction.

I share the view with a pair of ravens flying by at my level and a red-tailed hawk perched in a nearby tree at the edge of the bluff.

People come and go without noticing the birds but many stop to take in the view. It is pretty spectacular.
