LOVE BIRD’S – June 30, 2017

Two days in a row, how about that?

This morning I’ll take you on a little over three mile walk around Coupeville. It was a foggy morning so it made taking photographs a little tricky but like my brother Ron always says, “On a foggy day take foggy pictures”, so that’s what I did.

First up, “The Wharf”. I liked the way these flowers framed the foggy wharf.

Out on the wharf I looked back at the backside of Coupeville’s Front Street, huh?

And then I spotted my old friend “Frank” the Great Blue Heron. Here he’s sitting on his favorite pole, flanked by foggy sailboats in the background that are anchored in Penn Cove.

He was posing so nice I think he wanted a close up so I obliged. Frank’s happy now and I got a great shot.

And finally on the backside of the wharf, on the gas dock, were two Pigeon Guillemont’s kissing! It was a beautiful display of affection as they kissed over and over. Is nature great or what?

That should wrap this week and now onward to what should be the start of the Fourth of July holiday.

Thanks for walking with me and I’ll knock on your door soon so we can do it again.

 

MONSTER WALK

This morning’s walk was a “Monster Walk”, not because I walked a long way but instead because of the route I took. Here’s my 4.28 mile  “Monster Walk”!

The first thing I spotted was this neatly trimmed lilac tree.

Just as I was going into Kruger Woods the “Monopoly Houses” caught my eye. At least they remind me of Monopoly houses.

Out on the Coupeville Wharf this pair of Pigeon Guillemont’s were nicely posed on the gas dock.

As I was leaving the wharf the rays of the morning sun started shining through the clouds creating this rather spectacular photo.

Well that was fun, thanks for walking with me. I’ll catch you again tomorrow!
