Yesterday was a very busy day. Up early to go walking before the heat rose to uncomfortable! The birding areas we walked around were quiet and near desolate of any wildlife...except for mosquitoes....that comes with the territory. Then, doctor's appointment, errands, and shopping. The blood work results were scary!!! Scary for the fact that everything was GOOD!! Trust me when I say that a natural remedy for high cholesterol is OATMEAL!!! Even the cholesterol total dropped from 218 at the hospital to a total of 102!!! But now, I'm thinking that may be a bit 'dangerous' on the opposite track of numbers' scale...too low. More adjustments probably is what it calls for... I went into shock....but very happy to have that report from my P C Physician to take with me to my cardiologist/stent surgeon next month. Maybe, if all goes well for THAT appointment, I can have my heart meds dosages lowered. That would be the icing on the cake!!!
The following photos are NOT from yesterday, but last week....
This seemed to me an illusion!! This tanker was on the channel...but looks like it's floating across the meadow/pasture!! I took the image from about 3/4 of a mile away from a birding tower, looking toward the passage---it was a bit eerie since the silence was deafening and the floatation just seemed a bit ghostly with no visible channel water under the ship!! My 'False Impression'.
...the fur!! This one is most self explanatory. Cute, huh?
Look!! Up in the sky....its a bird. In fact, THREE...two turkey vultures readying for Flight and a lone roseate spoonbill flying off into the sunrise over the marshland.
lastly, my fencing. I love the look of the weathered wood nestled in the greenery and along-side the bottle brush bush.
