Birds, Kelp, and Dragons

On my last visit to the beach for this trip, I couldn't help but take these photos - I'm sure it's a bit like looking at clouds, but doesn't it look like a dragon's head?

 And the waves and tide did an excellent job in twisting kelp into some rope.

I took my dad's old binoculars with me as well.  They are heavy, but at least functional.  I am certainly no bird watcher, but just that afternoon saw two kinds of gulls, 3 swans, mergansers, mallards, cormorants, and a couple of others that I haven't identified yet.  My greatest respect for birders that know what all of these winged creatures are!  Hopefully I will get better at this.
