China  Camp  Scenes

   China Camp is a California State Park in Marin County. The name derives from the original settlement (first image below) of immigrant fisherman who netted the (then) plentiful shrimp in San Francisco bay. With the exhaustion of the shrimp, the settlement was abandoned, but the park continues as a pleasant place to enjoy the Bay and the hills of Marin.

The Great White and a Snowy Egret - both decided to fly off at the same time but settled back down just a few yards away.
