We followed up the Centennial Beach visit with a walk along the dyke at Boundary Bay. I heard killdeer, and soon we saw an amorous couple frolicking before mating.

It appeared that only a few seconds is all it takes. They repeated this courtship and mounting a couple of times.
Yumi and I went down to Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen today. We’ve often seen eagles there, and today was no exception.
While I often prefer nature to man-made objects, these Spiderman and Fighter Jet kites were pretty cool, too.
