We rose early and went out to breakfast. I then walked a couple of hours along the marsh. The tide was so high, people were canoeing where the bike path is supposed to be. The birds were out and tame. I think I could have touched a Great Blue Heron and a Great White Egret. Golden Slippers was there too. I thought of how the Audubon Society began as a way to save the egrets. The women wanted the breeding feathers for their hats. I was close enough to see how beautiful they are and grateful they are protected and we don't wear feathers on our head. The ducks all seemed partnered and well-matched.
I came back and didn't even come inside, just went right to the yard to work. I have it fairly spiffy and Steve washed and waxed the car, so the rain is sure to come. I had left all the doors open to air out the house, so now it is 58 inside. I turned it up to 62 and after being out, that feels hot.
It feels so good to be outside. I am content.
I haven't yet read the paper but my son who is visiting NY, sends me this. It is an advantage of reading the news on-line.
