Fern Canyon

Spent the day on Monday driving out to Fern Canyon (just north of orick here in humboldt county off the 101) then went for what turned out to be a 6 mile hike! We thought we were going to be only an hour or two... but nope... however, the unexpected ended up being waaaaaay amazing! I want to hike on all those trails...

I started making feather earrings. Here are two pair that i like the most. I hope i can sell them one day. My wire wrapping needs some major improvement, but I think its fun to wear the ones i made and maybe send some to my friends. :) Let me know if you would like to purchase a pair off me.. I'd give you a deal. Thanks!

Duckies on a windy day

The ducks are HUGE! HUGE! HUGE! they are now, at 4.5 weeks old, sleeping outside in the duckhouse. We hung up the brooder light in the duckhouse to keep them warm, a they still dont have a lot of feathers. They keep getting more and more feathers but they are not even close to a full jacket. It's unbelievable how quickly they have grown and how funny their quacks keep getting.
