One more week of August, Summer, left- it always goes so fast! But our weather here has been un-Summer-like for two week already... I'm bummed out I haven't gone swimming yet, because the low-tides, rain, or cool temps took the motivation away. Sunny, hot 80's F would make it far more likely to happen..
Critters at the M-cove this year have been good company, but poor pic models. These geese took a long time to decide to cross under the bridge, until I turned away not to watch them that day.
This spring an otter had a lodge on the other side of the bridge, n I got horrible, smudgy shots of her swimming from under the bridge, as she came out to see who was whistling a call, (Just me). But of course July fireworks made her decide to move further up the estuary. The Blue Heron always hides in the long marsh grass at the cove edge, n I only have teeny speck pics of him. Again today I saw him fly away when I got on the bridge. The only company there tonight were two other pic takers, n a couple of fisher-guys. I chatted a little bit, n then the graphic quality of clouds quickly sailed away, n so very few pics were clicked.
Folks are trying to get in more Summer before it's over. I'm hoping we get the missing hot weather back three weeks from now in time for my long-awaited week off. Meanwhile, I'm picking pretty tomatoes n flowers, n hanging on a few more weeks of crazy-time work.
