The last few days have exposed me to more and more nature and wild life on this beautiful island. Maybe I have just become more attuned with the island and have become better at spotting the wild life. I have had several encounters with wild foxes, including a red one that was too far away to get a good photo, several encounters up close with bald eagles, but not a camera ready, and whales and eagles are making their way past our windows as I sit on my couch with a good book. Difficult to concentrate, as I am constantly distracted by the activities outside the window.
It is lovely to see the island become even greener and more colorful, as trees add more and more color each day as the days are warming up. At first, a few pink or white buds appeared, or tiny fragile green leaves, and each day, as I step out the door, I see more color. The days are becoming warmer and the sunshine more frequent.
Took a horseback ride through a forest on Saturday. Can’t wait to do more.
I hope I don’t bore you with my photos of all this nature.
