Landart: Friday Harbor Labs
Strange Totem Poles on the Beach

Totem pole Eye Corpet Friday Harbor 2009 Easter: Eileen R0B1N is a week old, and her grand-parents come to visit her in FHL, from Toulouse, France. Denis Corpet is on the small beach of Friday Harbor Laboratories, Washington, USA, with Jeremie (4) and Myriam (2.5). Dead mini-crabs are not exciting enough for him, and he decides to bewitch the beach with strange animal totem poles, by standing up floated tree logs.

Sorry, but Camel, Hole, Raven, Gandalf stick, Dragon-B-Z, Flower basket, Giraffe and Fish cannot be enlarged.
I've build some ten other landart scupltures along the shore of San Juan Island (e.g., the egg-tree, the fur seal, ...), most of them on wild parts. To reach them one should follow the large path that crosses the Preserved Forest, North of FHL, and turn right on a smaller path on top of first slope, when the biome changes clearly. This small path is gorgeous, and reaches the shore after many curves on thick moss, between huge Douglas firs and wonderful madrone trees. You may meet a Hobbit on it (I did not). I met a friendly sea otter on the far away beach: she was playing with algae, fishing crabs and eating them with crunchy noises.
