at this point in November

It's been windy. Yesterday, Cal and I walked down to the beach to watch the waves crash. We've been seeing them through the window for the past couple of days; they're far more dramatic up close. Just down the street from us, there is an eagle's nest, inhabited by a male, a female, and their yearling. As soon as we stepped out the door Cal spotted one of them, flying low above us, then disappearing down toward the water below. Once on the beach, we saw two of them sitting on a rock, then leave it, soaring high, then back down and up, again, repeatedly. Alexi said he thinks his father told him the eating's good for birds when it's windy, because the water gets stirred up.

Now there are more branches without than with leaves. The neighbor's gingko lost all it's leaves over the weekend. Overnight, it seems, it finally feels like we're in the thick of November.

A full week ahead, for us. I'm sure for you, too. I hope it gets off to a good start for all of us. xo
