Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning ( By the Sea in Hokkaido )

Woke up in the morning and found it was misty.

Got out of the hotel and walked as far as I could.

Came to a river estuary where the river meets the sea.004

The place was completely quiet apart from the occasional quacks of the wild ducks.

I sat on the pebble protected shallow beach, watching the ducks.006

By now more ducks have moved out from the beach; I presumed that they didn’t like me the stranger.

I admired how blissful these ducks were and have the place almost completely to themselves – except for the intrusion of this stranger.
