A Lovely Morning

By , January 17, 2019

I know a lot of posts have been about scenery lately, but we live in a beautiful place. Can’t argue that.

On a recent morning, although we expected and got a rather cloudy, lackluster day, we witnessed a rather spectacular sunrise.

We put aside morning tasks and went out to watch, and take photos as well as we could.

This last ray shot up from behind the mountain for about a minute, then the clouds moved in, and it disappeared (Photo: Mark A. Zeiger).

Sadly, the photos don’t capture the intensity of light we actually saw. There’s no real substitute for being here.

    Good morning (literally, as the photos show): If you are looking for subject matter I would be interested in more info/comments as to how your family utilizes boats/canoes to access your property and how these craft are launched and stored. Do you have access to property across the bay where one can safely store watercraft and automobiles while on the “mainland” (for lack of a better term)? What ever happened to the Martha Jane? Have a good day !

    Peter, thanks for asking these questions. I’ve posted about some of these topics in the past (see A Good Haul (Part 1) and When High Tides Work for Us) but I need to say more. Some will come soon, as most of our boats are stored for the winter, more will come in spring and summer, when we start using the boats more, and can get photos for the posts.

    The Martha Jane, Selkie, has sadly been stored in town for most of our time here. The homestead keeps us so busy we have little time to go give her the attention she needs, nor have we figured out how to moor her safely on our property.
