Soar like an Eagle

A Bald Eagle soars overhead while I take a break from weeding the garden.

I apologize to everyone for my absence. The weather the last few weeks has been extraordinary. In fact according to the National Weather Service, May was the 7th driest on record, but unfortunately that meant putting down the camera and focusing on some exterior home improvement projects (which required dry weather) and end of the school year activities. When I wasn’t painting fascia boards, so we can install new rain gutters, I was helping stack firewood, weeding, or doing yard work. Occasionally I got my camera out to photograph our progress, but by the end of the day I didn’t have the energy to download load photos or post on the blog. Of course, I would have much rather spent a sunny day sailing, whale watching, hiking, or something, but duty called. I appreciate your patience these last few weeks. If I get some time, I’ll post a few photos on the days I missed, so you might want to scroll down on your next visit to see if I’ve added anything.

This is so majestic! It just makes my heart sing! Down here in Seattle, we had one of the wettest Mays on record!
