Still sheltering at home and looking out from the living room. Some photos from the last week or so (plus the tree at Niles Pond with its coronavirus PPE). Today is the Seventeenth of May, Norway’s national holiday, with no parades this year. But Anne-Lise and I are celebrating – skaal!

A handsome Little Blue Heron came within camera range recently. Shared the marsh area with an egret who preferred to social distance. It almost looks like he’s wearing a mask!
An almost normal kind of family beach activity we noticed recently at Pebble Beach. I was able to stay distanced and masked for a short conversation with this family. That’s Giorgio under the sand bed made by Dimitri and Leo. Dad (Matthew) overseeing the effot. They seemed glad to talk to me which is probably an indicator of how bored they have been!
