Good morning on this cloudy Saturday! It’s also the warmest morning we have had in quite a while and it feels very nice. And today we are supposed to get some showers later which is also nice as it will help to melt the remaining snow that still shows up in patchy spots. Yesterday was very nice and sunny, but once again very windy, but the wind was from a different direction this time, still made things feel a bit chilly though. But I decided it was time to check out my path down to the river again. I was quite surprised to see that there wasn’t much snow and ice left along the way. I didn’t go all the way to the river, but did go more than half the distance. I still have to be a little careful with my walking, even though it’s been 6 and a half months now. But that muscle will never be the same so I will have to be much more careful from now on. But the other 2 muscles are being strengthened to take over the work of the damaged muscle so that should make things more or less normal anyway. More about my walk later.
And now for some more beautiful white bird pics to enjoy…
A herring gull last summer down by the river. It was always sitting on this rock and I took it’s picture several times, hopefully I haven’t shown this one before.
I did show a similar pic of these white pelicans last year, but that time there was more of them in the picture. They always love to sit on these rocks and preen their feathers with those huge beaks of theirs. Sometimes I have counted at least 80 birds on these rocks. They are big birds with a wingspan of up to 11 feet (about 3 meters and 30cm I think).
I hope you all have an enjoyable Saturday, please stay safe and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
