New cat buddy

I take walks on my lunch hour around the neighborhood near my office.  I often run across cats, but lately hadn't seen my usual white/orange cat buddy from last summer, nor has the all-orange cat made many appearances either.  Today I met a new cat buddy on my walk.  I called her over (assuming female, but wasn't sure), not expecting anything, but she ran right over.  Very sweet and loving, and her markings are really nice.  She really enjoyed my petting.  At one point she even got up on a higher part of the wall, jumped up on her hind legs and put her paws on my shoulder, and rubbed her head on me!  I would have taken her home in a heartbeat.  She looked well-fed enough to have a home, though.  She walked down the street with me for a while, but stopped around the end of the property, so likely belongs to the house I was walking past.

Morning walk photos

I've dropped off on my photo project because I got busy, and I also found that some of the prompts were repeating. I haven't given it up entirely, just haven't had much enthusiasm for it in recent weeks.

I did, however, snap a few pics along my morning walk last week.

I wish my camera could actually capture what I'm seeing. The raised peninsula is the Nature Park, and the water in front of the raised area was still and glassy. Must have been high tide for it to have been that smooth.

A tanker in the middle, and a cruise ship coming in to town on the left.

These two seagulls (I like to think they're the same two) seem to love sitting on this roof most mornings. I picture them as Frank and George, having their morning coffee.

Another attempt to get a shot of the cruise ship, in the middle of the shot. I had a better angle a couple of weeks ago because I was walking an hour later when the ship was closer, but the shot was poor quality from my phone.
