What is THAT?

Eola Inn Restaurant is located along the Willamette River near Salem. The view is better than spectacular. One can often see bald eagles and golden hawks along with geese, ducks and other birds, swooping and dipping along the river. And if the view weren't attraction enough, their tasty meals are incredibly reasonable.

We were having lunch with our friend Vern, when I noticed this awesome cloud. Of course, I had my camera along and no one seemed to mind when I leaped to my feet to press my camera against the gigantic glass windows to take a picture. It must be a common occurrence? Anyhow, here you see what I saw. . .I think it might be a space ship?! What do YOU think?

Oh, it is most definitely a spaceship, but we don't want to be responsible for mass hysteria. I put on some old government-issued glasses and discovered it's "really" a sombrero. :)

Looks like a very cool cloud formation. :)

Well it might be a spaceship, but I see a sleeping bear myself.

My imagination must be on vacation. I see nothing that strikes my fancy. Ah, perhaps an aligator chowing down on a favorite dessert topped with a dollop of cream. Too far fetched?

Hmmm - my eyes were drawn to that knobby thing in the middle. I thought it looked like a nose. So someone is sleeping with their nose stuck up in the air. The dark underside is their hair.
I think my imagination is on vacation too. Ah well.

Your comments about the Bald Eagle reminded me of a photo taken of a Bald Eagle about to capture a starling in the air. I had never seen anything like that in my life.

Well! I see the nose of a sleeping giant!

Or a spaceship ... must be a rival of the Borg cube cloud you posted some time ago.

Yes, the craft looks like it's emerging from the huge cloud formation. Your description of the birds and scrumptious food make me want to visit (I'm hungry!)

Don't friends and family just love us snapping photos everywhere, all the time?

Ominous, for sure.

(I'm glad I'm not the only one who looks, er, a little odd there let lose on society!)

Definitely a space ship. People look at me like I am nuts when I shoot pics of the sky.
