This small foxglove plant was growing in the forest undergrowth near an opening in the trees.
I saw several of these tall grass and brush area between the forest and the beach. They had new clumps of leaves and there were several old red rose hips still attached.
The large salmonberry bushes in the forest were bright with new leaves and blossoming bright fuschia flowers. On this sunny day, they were beautifully lit up across the forest.
There were many new small lady fern plants unravelling in the forest. They were only about a foot high, and some were much nearer to the ground and still in a curl form.
I spotted this birds nest on a very high up branch in the forest. I do not know what kind of bird or creature made it, but it was quite large, and made with sticks that stuck out in all directions.
I saw these deer prints on the beach. There were many prints scattered in the sand and of varying sizes. I believe it was a black-tailed deer that made these because they are quite common in the Port Ludlow area.
There were many blades of American bachgrass, Ammophila breviligulata, that were growing on the beach berm near Pt. Ludlow Bay. At this time of year they seemed to be fresh sprouts.
This type of seaweed wasn't as common as most of the seaweed that covered the beach, but every once in awhile I would come across a small piece of this purpleish red seaweed with tiny bumps.
This type of seaweed was attached to the rocks nestled by barnacles on many of the larger rocks in the tideflat areas. It has a pod-like structure and a bumpy texture.
Clusters of mussels were found on sticks, branches of trees, and large rocks in the tide flats. They were usually found next to barnacles.
I was lucky enough to have my camera with me when a robin landed close by and looked straight at me. It seemed larger than most robins.
I saw several of these limpets nestled among the barnacles attached to the larger rocks at high tide.
I saw many holly plants near the edge of the forest and very sparse holly plants in the forest. None of them had berries and they were not very tall.
