Sometimes it's difficult to find time to write a daily journal entry. Take yesterday, for example. After a leisurely breakfast with our friend Clay, Lou Ann & I borrowed a cousin's kayak (Clay had brought his own; I suppose I should purchase my own too). We put in at one of the island creeks and paddled out into the sound. Immediately we left the world of motor vehicles and all that they represent.
We were surrounded by water, marsh, blue sky, and wading birds. The water is shallow on the "back side" of the island so we were fortunate to observe a number of turtles swimming near our kayaks. There were also herons, egrets, & jumping mullets.....as well as hermit crabs crawling among the eel grass.
We found several derelict crab pot buoys that had washed up into the marsh. We loaded them onto our kayaks and carried them back to hang up on our outbuilding.
We barely had time to grab a bite to eat before 11 month old Lachlan was scheduled to come by for the rest of the afternoon and evening. We immediately set out to visit friends, including Ann (who is 95 years old) and Max (who is just 3 months old).
All in all, it was a busy day. So, if you don't hear from us for a day or two, it's probably because we're just having too much fun.
