On the path to the marsh.
One of many American robins. Along the path we also saw tufted titmice, red-winged blackbirds, an American pipit & red-headed & red-bellied woodpeckers.
I really liked the shadows & reflections here.
At the marsh.
Great egret in the marsh. There were also dozens upon dozens of American coots, some brown pelicans & at least one tricolored heron at the marsh.
On the boardwalk, a "poo bear."
Since that beautiful, 72F day it has since grown very cold here (relatively speaking.) Highs lately are in the mid-40s (farenheit,) with lows well below freezing. There's even been some talk in the forecast about sn*w...but that's enough of such blasphemy!
In other news, I got the stitches out of my shoulder the other day & the doctor showed me photos taken through the laproscope during the procedure (including him bolting my labrum back to the bone.) I still have to take it easy & can't raise my arm more than 90 degrees, but I'm able to paint again (so long as I'm careful.) I've also ret'd to work & start physical therapy soon, but I already feel so much better! A million thanks & blessings to Glenda Petroff, the nurse practitioner who actually listened to me & did something about it!
In other news, Syd Barrett's birthday is tomorrow. He would have been 64. R.I.P, Syd.
