Grant and I loaded the bike and on Tuesday morning rode down the East Coast. We stayed over with Grant's brother, Chilly and sister-in-law, Shelly. Chilly has bought himself a Harley Davidson 1200 Sportster . Grant went down to help him fit forward controls (foot rests) and a few other accouterments.
While the men played around with this toy on the patio, Shelly took me to a bird hide a few minutes ride from her home. There I met the most knowledgeable birder and excellent bird photographer whom I'd only ever seen on e-mails. (I'll post more about our outing on Wednesday)
The hide overlooks a wide expanse of water dammed there by the SAPPI paper mill nearby. So a wonderful opportunity to photograph water birds, ducks, waders and more.
You have to take my word for it...
...that this is...
...an Egyptian Goose!
And this is...
When we arrived home on Thursday, the Amaryllis I'd posted about last Saturday
was in full bloom
Chappie had found a box stacked inside a box and actually managed to squash her large frame into it!
She always poses when she sees me !
AKA The Paw!
Here in my office the first blooms of the Spathiphyllum had opened
I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen here
Here's wishing you all a wonderful Saturday!
