|To my fanciful mind, the tops of the shipping cranes rising above the fog look like modern day sea monsters eyeing the buildings beyond|
|About half an hour later, as the fog started to recede, the Vincent Thomas Bridge began to emerge and the cranes looked more like cranes|
In addition to monsters in the harbor this morning, yesterday I came home to find an alien bug sitting by the front door. About 3 inches long, even my husband was loathe to get close to it but, after taking a photo, I determined it was dead on the doorstep.
|After a cursory search on the internet this morning, I discovered that the dead creature is probably a potato bug or Jerusalem cricket, which is neither a cricket or a potato-eating bug. You can find a video featuring a live potato bug here.|
This post feels more appropriate to Halloween than the lead-up to Christmas, although that holiday is frighteningly close and I'm woefully unprepared so perhaps we can think of this as part of "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Visit Anna at Flutter & Hum to find more Wednesday Vignettes.
