I am a person who wants to get things done yesterday, especially concerning unpacking in my new digs. I settled for some balance and let the boxes be and drove to a couple of water spots in or near the city. A lot of water fowl were not present : Pelicans, Red-necked Grebes, and Great Blue Heron, but the Ring-Billed Gulls, Double-Crested Cormorants, Mallard Ducks and American Coots were still around. oh, and of course Magpies.The vegetation has changed considerably since before the move, not surprising since there is a lot less light but I still had a bit of a pout for missing most of August due to packing..soon the leaves will be at their natural finest, in fact some are changing now.
It was good to get out and see some feathered friends and even a curious squirrel.it was great to play with the camera again, too.
