I walked down to the river at Shore Hills a couple of times, looking for the sunset and found it.
And now I’m at Wild Duck campgrounds, which is only a mile from the Scarborough Marsh Audubon site. Which may explain this as the scenery I found as I explored the park.There are quite a few egrets out there in the marsh, but even my biggest lens wouldn’t have caught them. Not well enough anyhow. This one, however, was in the little pond just inside the entrance, and I took a million pictures of him as he hunted. Take my word for it, he has a little flat fish in his mouth, it just doesn’t show against that background.
And red dragonflies are a different variety to me. I should look them up. I should do a lot of things.
Last night I dutifully locked the car, using the key fob from inside the camper. This morning I realized that I had left the front car windows open. Almost as soon as I got here I was surprised to hear the sound that the acorns make as they drop on the roof of the camper. They sound like they will leave dents in the roof of the car parked beside me. But when I got into the car just now to close it up I was surprised to find an acorn in the red baseball cap that was laying on the console. How the heck did that happen???
Yes, campers are a fun group. While I always thought I’d love to do this I never really had an inkling of what the reality of it would be. I love it. It suits me. And I could so very easily have talked myself out of doing it at all. I’m so glad I didn’t…
