From the past week. It’s getting more black-and-white out there, but these are all color photos.
Two windsurfers enjoying the wind and relatively calm harbor, launching off Niles Beach on Saturday afternoon.
Everything pretty normal (but rewarding) this past week.
Don’t mean to inundate you with Great Blue Heron photos, but our friend did return and put on a good follow-up act.
Three Great Blue Herons visited yesterday. They spent the afternoon in the trees preening and napping. We kept checking on the last one, that flew off to hunt at sunset. These are yesterday’s photos, but it is the same routine today.
A ‘Wicked Tuna’ film crew was busy yesterday in the harbor, and then outside slightly offshore. The captions to these photos are my imagination as to what was going on.
Teddy was offshore and nothing like our March northeast storms a couple of winters ago, or past hurricanes with a more direct hit. But teddy wasn’t timid.
Missed posting this Monarch last evening. Also, the day ended peacefully with diminished atmospheric impact from the western wildfires.
A week with the return of migrating Monarch Butterflies, a couple of our seals from last winter, and the local population growing up.
Labor Day is already in the rear view mirror.
A very nice holiday weekend, and of course a few photos. But, starting with a couple of the well documented August 23rd squall line.
Sunday afternoon we watched surfers riding modest waves immediatly off the Eastern Point lighthouse, next to Mother Ann. Then on Tuesday evening we were treated to the US Coast Guard carrying out rescue exercises closer to the shore than usual.
More walks and views from the house over the last couple of weeks.
We have had quite a weekend with walks to the causeway (between Niles Pond and Brace Cove) and a water show in front of our deck. With family visiting, we enjoyed lobsters from Joey’s operation.
Always more photo opportunities on our walks
I also took Joey up on his invitation today to meet the Calico Lobster at Capt Joe & Sons. Joey personally introduced me to a very active and handsome crustacean. He/she may look already steamed, but definitely wasn’t.
