The morning dawned cold and grey, however forecasters were predicting 50 degree temperatures by the time the day was done. So we went about our business, my husband washing the car and me lounging about in my pajamas and sheep slippers.
It's nice sometimes to lounge about in pajamas and slippers on a Saturday morning.
Well, after a couple of hours, the sun did finally come out. It was glorious! So we packed a lunch and the camera bag and headed down to Bombay Hook Nature Center along the Delaware coastline. I could feel the sun through the car window and it was so nice and warm. I closed my eyes and was surprised at how good it felt.
It was quiet when we arrived at our destination. We drove along the ponds looking for birds and wildlife. I used to think this was a total yawnfest but I like it now. It's quiet and peaceful and we can get out of the car and into the sun and take walks with George. The photo above is a walkway out to a viewing platform along one of the tributaries. It's been closed for some time for repairs and they've done a great job.
The platform has been totally refurbished, and benches have been added.
I liked how the bench backs looked against the grasses. This is PW's Seventies Action. I couldn't help it.
I saw two buffleheads, but the little suckers swam away real fast. I did manage to capture one of them.
A field of snow geese all looking in the same direction.
And George looking in that direction, as well.
What a beautiful day it turned out to be. And guess what we heard in the little neighborhood through our trees after we returned home? The ice cream man. In February!!!
Until later, my friends . . .
