Lazy Day by the Water
Cue Ol' Man River on your iTunes and listen to William Warfield as you watch that river keep on moving along.
Today was a relaxation day. Of course, Mary Ann worked on her photo stuff, and I researched publishers, but we had no events to attend, no schedules to keep, and no miles to make. We just did our thing, and watched the river out the front window. The big events were a couple of large barges that made their way south. And of course, watching the birds on the river -- seagulls and white pelicans out in the middle, and great blue herons up close.
This guy fished right up close to us. He completely filled the binoculars. It was fun watching the fish keep on wiggling as it went down his throat. Sorry for this photo. I had to use manual focus because of the raindrops on the windshield, and it didn't quite do the job.
