Previous post was entitled «getting soaked». Since then, we’ve had a mixed bag of weather … mostly nice. However, starting tonight, we’ll be getting soaked again from the remnants of tropical storm Andrea.
Today was nice — warm, a little overcast — excellent for photos, so I grabbed my camera and went out to look for birds. One bird, in particular, actually … I was longing to see some bright yellow colour, and he didn’t disappoint! The Am. Goldfinch made a brief appearance.
First ducklings were out one month earlier than last year … at least from what I saw! Usually I go to the park almost every day, so I don’t think I’m all that wrong. Little fuzz balls are cute as always.
In a week from today, I’ll be in Sweden! It still feels a bit unreal that I’m going away, but on Thursday, going to the airport, I’m sure it will feel very real. Going to travel the usual route, Halifax > Reykjavik > Stockholm, with the only exception that this time I’m going to fly out of Saint John. The previous times, Gerry has driven me to Halifax.
