Monday Mischief: 10 Degrees

It was about 10 degrees Fahrenheit. The big dogs and I went down to the river (it is way too cold for the little guy to be out long). We were going crazy cooped up in the house because of the weather.

Leave it to Sofie to find a blue crab claw hiding in the bushes. She thought she was going to have it for lunch. Though blue crabs are in the Chesapeake Bay (and my tributary the Magothy River) year round, I don’t think this crab was a recent catch.

We are blessed to live in such a beautiful place.

 What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wordless Wednesday: Cold Day and a Cormorant

Cold Day Cormant

I had to do a lot of calling because the dogs wanted to swim out to the platform in the icy water and eat the Cormorant.  I am afraid she would have eaten them.

WW 2.3.16 3

It is interesting that there is 2+ feet of snow up by the house but not on the banks of the river.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Chickens provide the fertilizer on this Pennsylvania farm. The mobile coops are relocated daily to distribute manure evenly so that it won’t drain into the Chesapeake Bay.

Black and White Sunday: First Float Redux

Reprising a picture I took in May 2013 as the baby ducklings made their way for an inaugural swim from under the dock.

Monday Mischief: Spring Has Sprung!

MM 3.20.15 3

“Hey Sofie, let’s walk around and see if there are any heron hiding down on the other side of the point.”

MM 3.30.14“Wow Louise.  That water is sure looking blue.”
MM 3.30.15 2

We are excited about SPRING!!!! The ice has melted on the river. The osprey have built their nest. So why is Mom saying it is going to snow again next week?  You must be wrong Mom.  We are ready to chase ducks.  Bring on the ducklings!

What mischief did you get into today?

Monday Mischief: Shoreline Restoration

MM 2.2.15

Down by the river on a snowy day.  Run run run.  We love to play and romp and roll.  The river front is eroding so our community is working with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to restore the shoreline.  The restoration is a holistic approach and includes shallow water habitat, submerged aquatic vegetation planting terraces, conservation areas, and a living shoreline.  We can’t wait to see all the fun critters that will make their home on our banks.  State tune for more mischief for Mondays!

Monday Mischief: What The Tide Drags In

IMG_0574

It may be cold but we still like to go down to the docks and chase whatever the wind blows our way.  Lately the water has been really low when we get there and we can see so many interesting things.  Mom won’t let us jump off and explore the bottom though, she thinks it is dangerous.  It looks really cool to us.  What do Mom’s know anyway!

Black and White Sunday: I Spy

101214

 

Sofie seems to always be playing the game ‘I Spy.’  Here she is spying a duck or fish or bouy.  Actually, I never know what she spies.

Bark Out Loud.  That dog cracks me up!

Happy Sunday!

Monday Mischief: Osprey Win Back The Nest!

Osprey Collage 2014

Remember last week I was worried about the Bald Eagles that were on the Osprey platform.  I was worried that we were going to have a turf war over the nest.  But, looks like the Osprey family has returned and there is no sign of the Eagles.  This means, even though it is rain/snowing outside right now, spring has come to the Mid-Atlantic.  Now if only the temperature would follow.

Happy Monday!  What Mischief are you getting in to?
