I spent time yesterday taking photos for a book about Woods Hole for a great niece’s first grade son and I spent much of today publishing it as a CVS photo book. By doing this, I was able to order the completed book and have it printed at a CVS in West Virginia where it can be picked up after 10 am in the morning. Good thing since it is due at school on Monday. But the point I want to make is that in doing this, I was once again reminded of the beauty of this corner of the world. As I was taking photos in Woods Hole yesterday, I was constantly distracted by the distinctive call of nesting osprey. They were everywhere. And where there are osprey nests, there were egrets, red-winged blackbirds, and swans. All so beautiful. In the book, I toured Woods Hole and then followed the Falmouth Road Race course back to Falmouth. Some of the views from that course are just breath taking.
I took time out this afternoon to walk next door and visit with Doris and Shirley. They returned from their stay in Scituate on earlier this week and I haven’t had a moment to properly say hello. Shirley and I had a nice conversation and I look forward to spending more time visiting. Heather and gang took off late this afternoon for two nights of cub scout camping and biking, but it is possible they will return late tomorrow if the rain that is forecast becomes a reality. I have a lot of small jobs and errands to run tomorrow and plan to start setting up the raised beds in my front yard on Sunday. Sounds like a low-key weekend, but we’ll see if that really happens.
