I left the cabin this morning at 5:30AM; it was 36 degrees as I headed down the mountain. I will miss my cabin life tremendously, but this is a relatively quick trip. The best part is I get to see the girls and Liam, along with a few river friends, and I am excited about that!
Our river home is lovely, as usual. I believe I prefer the mountains...I am particular to cooler weather...but the river is a different life all it's own. And I love the river too.
This is a photo of the Indian River, a brackish river (fresh and salt water), that is frequently wavy due to "on shore winds" I will call them. The ocean is about 7 miles to the East from where we are, so we don't get the ocean breeze, but it is a river, and we get lot's of "on shore breeze"! The rock is Coquina, which is basically rock made from shells (click on the link if you want to learn more). I took this photo from our dock. Is should not surprise you that we are
naturalists here too. We let the wild growth have it's way, nature's
As I approached the dock, a blue heron sat on a piling, but flew away before I could snap the picture. You will just have to imagine him sitting on a piling on the river until I can capture him...
There is a lot of wind this afternoon, but I thought you might like to see a video of the river in action...you may want to turn down (or off) the sound...
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
