These 2 Green Herons were so much fun to watch the other morning. It looks like a mother and a young one. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
The larger one would walk along the rail and the little one would follow along. At one point, it looked like they were fighting as the parent tried to get away.
The last photograph almost looks like the parent is reprimanding the little one. So much fun to watch… and then they both flew away!
Yesterday was the 30th Annual Arey’s Pond Cat Gathering, one of the largest gatherings of catboats on the east coast. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
“Our annual Cat Gathering is a time for catboats of all shapes and sizes to come together for a just-for-fun regatta through Pleasant Bay. Every year over 80 boats come together for this parade of sail.”
It was just spectacular to see all of those sailboats out on the water!
It was a gorgeous morning at Arey’s Pond with the beautiful reflections of the sailboats and their tall masts and the stormy clouds.
Beautiful view and beautiful colors!
I love walking out on the docks at Arey’s Pond Boat Yard in Orleans. There is always so much going on. Such a great view of the sailboats and motorboats and dinghys ready to go!
I love this view from the boat at Arey’s Pond in Orleans. You can see most of the catboats are now in the water, ready for a nice sail.
Have you ever sailed a catboat at Arey’s Pond? So much fun!
There are still a lot of hopeful sailors at Arey’s Pond… hoping that the weather will hold up for a few more good sails this fall before their boats are retired for the winter. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
You can see the 2 channel markers in the first photo, red and green. As you motor out through the river toward the bay, the 2nd photograph is what you will see. So pretty and so peaceful…
