Back in the saddle!

18 08 2015

I spent the first two weeks of August on vacation in Maine. We were well away from the coast, staying on Long Pond in scenic Rome. We did run into a few waterbirds, including bald eagles harassing loon chicks, an osprey seizing fish, and the usual ring-billed gulls loafing about. We also saw a young and confused looking double-crested cormorant sitting atop a pine tree.

The flashiest bird we saw was this one, in Wilton, Maine, where we stopped off for their Blueberry Festival and town wide yard sale. We couldn’t resist pulling off the road for a photo op.


The boys astride their glittering mount.

Now, the fun is over, and I am back at my computer getting back to work on SEANET and prepping my syllabi and materials for the beginning of the fall semester. Lovely to be with you all again.
