As you may know, last week was the last of the fifty-two views of the Gulf. By popular demand, that feature was retired in favor of some random shots of what I’m calling the neighborhood. Of course, I don’t anticipate photos of my neighbors and their houses. I do think the concept of the neighborhood could expand into the town proper and surrounding environs. With that in mind here is the first of three photos.
The bird in the photo is a Heron we have named Peggy. In this picture, she looks like she is moving but she is standing still. Peggy broke her leg about three years ago and all efforts to capture and help her have been for naught. As you can see, she does just fine, and we are pleased to have her on our section of beach. She doesn’t like tourists so much but who can blame her.
Here is a shot of another Heron who has decided to use our walkover as a lookout post. He used to sit on the markers but feels the walkover gives him some additional altitude so is much preferred. By the way, I haven’t really discussed his perching preference with him, so I’m not sure of his reasons. Since I’m a fiction writer when I’m not sure, I make stuff up.
When I went to interview him, he decided I had a sinister look about me and took to wing. I guess we will have to be satisfied with my reason for using the walkway sign.
Hope you all have a lovely week.
