I love living with so much water close to home; there's always a little creek or river or the bay or ocean within sight. A water view always cheers me. And if there's waterfowl in winter or herons and terns in summer, well... I'm sure to be smiling.
There were a dozen or more parasurfers out on the bay this afternoon, and foolishly I didn't stop to photograph them before the wind died down. This guy had been windsailing and was just picking up his gear while I watched. Of course he insisted he was plenty warm in his wetsuit!
Even the ever-present Canada Geese are beatiful in the right light on a winter afternoon.
I visited with some gulls in a parking lot littered with broken clam shells along the river. My car and I almost ended up in that very river today due to a moment's inattention. Foolish, but I had a good laugh at myself as a result.
