Phil and I were experimenting with our new cameras and took several “retro” photographs of the Coast Guard Station. We couldn’t decide which one we like better.
Which one do you like better?
The Great Blue Heron is my very favorite bird! I love its features and the majestic way it moves. We were walking the Salt Pond Trail and saw this Great Blue looking for his next meal.
Beautiful bird, don’t you think?
It’s the time of the year to go to Snow’s in Orleans and see their beautiful Christmas train exhibit. It is always a treat! And, din’t forget to visit their other model train exhibits in the back of the store.
Snow’s also has an amazing room filled with anything you can imagine for the holidays. So, while your kids enjoy the trains, you can shop to you heart’s content!
We were taking a hike at Fort Hill last fall when we passed a group of middle school student on a field trip. Their guide was telling them about the salt marsh and that there are 3 plants that make up a salt marsh.
I thought to myself, “I never knew that. I’ll have to look that up when I get home.” I did some research and I think they are herbs, grasses and low shrubs. Does anyone know if this is correct? There are many, many different varieties of each of these plants.
This is a photograph of Glasswort or Pickleweed. You can see it along the side of the trail on the salt marsh at Fort Hill.
