Busy day

White-breasted nuthatch, Beech Hill, Rockport, Maine, 29 November 2012.

White-breasted nuthatch.

Today was sunny, calm, nippy—really a beautiful day. I did all kinds of stuff. Was down in the cellar, out in the parking lot, vacuuming while printing out photos downstairs, writing in the kitchen upstairs, updating websites, chatting with pals online, plotting out the future, hiking Beech Hill. Didn’t ride my bike, though.

Sundown from Beech Hill, Rockport, Maine, 29 November 2012.


On the hill, late in the day, Jack and I met another friendly dude with a friendly dog. We also met four of the more common species down at the parking lot but none higher up. Got a good look at the lovely surroundings, though, as always. Got a glimpse of a sweet ol’ sundown.

Saw coots in the lake on our way to town for a few late errands. Man, I got a lot done today. Felt good.

Then, tonight, it snowed a little. Wonder what tomorrow will bring?
