Oh, what a gorgeous day it has been, today! Warm enough that, after dropping my daughter off at work, I went and parked by the beach and actually went walking. The lake and beach were very busy. There is an ice structure on the beach right now, and many people drive right up on the … Continue reading On Ice
Of course, things have been busy for the past while, even though we try to keep Christmas and New Year's very low key. I finally have some time to settle in at the computer, so I'm going to take advantage of that and catch up in things. I'll be going backwards in time, for the … Continue reading This and That
I was able to swing by the lake this morning. I'd been able to swing by yesterday, as well, and saw that the first few ice fishing sheds were being put up. Today, there were a few more. I stayed nice and warm in the car to take this photo - I wasn't about to … Continue reading On Ice
This past Sunday, the weather was mild enough that I was able to spend some time on the beach. It was really fascinating. The sand was frozen solid, but you could see the effects of water and ice. One dramatic visual was at the outflow for storm drains. At the time I was there, the … Continue reading Iced
With the timing of things for my daughter's Sunday shifts, I haven't been able to continue our search for a new church to attend, but I do try to take advantage of her short shift to make Sunday a day of rest. So many kittens! And their uncle/big brother. Oh, to be a cat, some … Continue reading A day of rest
I was in town this morning, and had the chance to visit the beach. Since I was last there, the town has pushed all the rocks and pebbles that the storm had pushed across the entry onto the main dock back onto the beach. The beach is still very changed in this area, from before … Continue reading Bonus pictures: a pebble’s eye view
This past Sunday, as has become my custom, I stay in town during my daughter's short shift. It turned out to be a beautiful day, and I was able to have my first visit to the beach since the blizzard. I have to say again, how incredibly fortunate we were during that storm. Yeah, we … Continue reading On the beach
It's been another very wet day today (I've read that, last month, we got triple the average amount of rain for our region; it doesn't seem to be letting up this month, yet). We did manage to get a dump run in. Because of when it closes on Saturdays, and when my younger daughter gets … Continue reading Mystery critter: what are you?
Today was one of those days when I was able to visit the beach after dropping my daughter off at work. This time, twice! I got these shots this morning. My beach visits are a multitasking thing. They are 1 part enjoying the scenic views and getting pictures, 1 part playing Pokemon Go and 1 … Continue reading A beachy morning
While at the beach a few days ago, I tried to get photos of all the seagulls on the shore. These are just a few that I could get in frame at once! It's so nice to go to the beach this time of year. It's still pleasant out, but tourist season is over, so … Continue reading Critter(s) of the Day: so many!
