Drippy day

Saturday, December 31st, 2011
Fog, from Beech Hill, Rockport, Maine, 31 December 2011.


A drippy, warmish, watery, foggy day. Got out in it late with Jack, right about the time the fog settled eerily in low points, and the upper sky opened briefly. The scenery from Beech Hill looked otherworldly. I saw a chickadee very near, heard a flicker in the middle distance, and, on our return, heard the voice of a barred owl from far away.

Tonight, I heard a lone Canada goose fly over. Sign of another year ending.
