Pond and Ocean — pat morss

Our two local water habitats are Niles Pond and the Eastern Point shoreline, and we all share both.

Black-crowned Night Heron at Niles Pond.
Female Red-winged Blackbird flaps and hops between lily pads.
“You got a problem with me taking this rock”? Mr Mallard.
“I don’t take no grief from nobody.” Snapping Turtles have long necks.

How do they avoid injury running through the rocks?
A stop for a drink of fresh water.
“I think it’s a little brackish. How ’bout you”?
Careful Eddy (Egret)! It’s calmer back on the pond.

Knowing we have a slip in Manchester by using the Dockwa app to make a reservation makes the trip an easy yes decision on a nice Saturday morning

It cost us $8 to tie up at the perfect docks right in downtown Manchester. The harbor master was super friendly and greeted us and we walked up the ramp and hit up Ally’s Beach Street Cafe which is always excellent.

So I Showed Salvy His Video

Someone recently sent me this YouTube video done with Salvy Benson about his Greasy Pole victories. Yesterday I told Salvy that I had just watched it. He had never seen it himself….so I gave him my phone and had him watch it. So, here’s Salvy watching Salvy….and a link to the video if you’ve yet to see it yourself. Thanks to Carl Mckay-Stratton for snapping the photo since Salvy had mine.
