Away and back

No... I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! I just wandered away for a day or two and never got here to say that I'd be away. There were ducks for chasing and sunsets to see over Barnegat Bay. If you stretch your imagination past the dock and it's lonely bench to the marsh on that far shore you'll see a short-ear or two hunting with the harriers in the gorgeous golden light of late afternoon. I wish I had pics of that to share, but now that I'm back I have only to imagine them there in the far away distance.

Good you got back. Our 2-foots wandered away and left the blogging to us and we only see them at food time. Thank goodness they remember that!

You sure have a pretty view. I would like that out my window! Do you want some company?

Sounds like you went some place magical - Welcome back

nina said...

Imagine yourself there, too.

Aren't memories wonderful?

Mary said...

Off playing around, huh? We all need to do that, regularly, like every day!

Glad you're back, Laura :o)

Love the sunset photo. I'd wander away too to gaze at such sunsets.

Short-ears are magical creatures. I'd have never imagined that they fly like they do over the marsh, like a Marsh Hawk. And with the light so perfect at Owl dusk, golden light in a clear Winter sky.

Barnegat is beautiful. Been there, done that, loved it. Glad you had the trip to remember.

Glad you got a play day, Laura. And, I must say, I wish you had a picture of that view too. In my imagination, it's fabulous!

So, off shirking your blog duties, chasing ducks?

Rabbits Guy: Leaving the buns and letting them have access to the computer - that's a dangerous proposition!

DivaKitty: It was, it was!

Nina: They are, yeah.

Mary: Playing around every day might be a little dangerous, but fun, I think.

KGMom: Yes.. the sunset was lovely and worth wandering away for.


Webtoad: Magical, yes.


Bobbie: Yes it is and it was, yeah.

Liza: Oh, they're beauties!

Delia: Thanks.

Susan: Guilty as charged. But the ducks were worth it!
