More Islands

I have a few spare minutes, so here are a few more pix from our islands flight. As we descended toward San Miguel from our high crossing of the Channel, I managed to penetrate the gathering haze with a polarized filter for this view of Santa Cruz stretching East toward Anacapa.

Many beaches on the islands were hosting pinniped gatherings like this North coast cove one on Santa Rosa.

The small island off the northeast end of San Miguel has an interesting shape (is it some critter with large body and pointy head?), and a steep rugged shoreline that makes it a great bird sanctuary.

At the left end of the larger “body” part is this hole toward the left end of this detail pic, that might spout water if big waves from just the right direction at high tide hit that crevice in the rock.
