Day 281 - 7th October 2016 - Cormorant, Dory and Fall Mornings

Well yesterday was my Friday and it was a great day! Nice morning walk - not many birds around these days - although the winter birds are re-appearing - Nuthatches, Goldfinches, Chickadees and Blue Jays. The staff and volunteers of the museums all went out to lunch together - swell time, good eats and company (and a few giggles).  Of course didn't feel like working too hard in the afternoon but we managed to make some progress on things. As our season winds down (first one for me) I look back and think, what a great summer it's been. Love the new job, have moved out of my comfort level on a few things and work with great people. I'm really looking forward to the next season.
 So I'm having a long weekend, lots to do today ( I got up too early) as we are off to Freeport once Larry gets home from work. Not Freeport Maine or Bahamas - Freeport, Digby County! House sitter is booked - a friend who wants a place to hang out and relax for the weekend. We are set to go Whale watching Saturday and of course most importantly spend time with good friends and do some birding on the Islands. Have a busy to do list today  to get ready - think I'll do up some brown bread rolls to take and throw together a Chocolate Trifle.
 Couldn't resist getting a couple of shots of this Cormorant hanging out on a Shelburne Dory made in our very own Dory Shop Museum on Dock Street.

Fall mornings are spectacular with their soft golden hues
A little burst of colors as Ferns fade away among the rocks.

Enjoy your day!
