From time to time a few harbor seals haul up on the mossy rocks at the river mouth, close to the old railroad bridge. The river is between them and the beach walkers, so it's a good place to rest.
For those who are dying to know, I got a temporary repair on my broken tooth today. It needs a crown though, so I'm not done. I already had one crown earlier this year, and a second one has already been scheduled. This new development is number three! My teeth are fragile and worn out after a lifetime of chewing. Teeth are not fingernails or skin--they don't fix themselves. Done is done. Luckily we have technology and I won't have to put my teeth in a jar every night.
