To Snode Creek

To Snode Creek
 
 
 
 
 
 
We got up, ready to up anchor at seven for the thirty five mile journey to Snode Creek. The morning mist was like a scene from Great Expectations
 
 
 
As we got going it was strange that the mist was to the left of us and clear calm to the right
 
 
 
 
We enjoyed the clear morning on glass flat water, watched by a Cormorant, Old Shoe settled behind
 
 
 
Fabulous to watch our old friend the Osprey land nearby
 
 
 
A family of ducks took off as I cleaned the stanchions (fence posts)
 
 
 
Perfect peace and tranquility
 
 
 
 
Neither fancy living as remotely as this..............but it broke the scenery up a bit
 
 
Then a short while later a real treat, off in the distance - our first wild otters, just for you Danny
 
 
Our last fixed bridge before open water
 
 
Out in the sound we saw a trawler pulling an interesting addition
 
   
   
   
 
 
Then we watched a Cormorant take off, well after several attempts and a fair bit of splashing
 
 
 
Old Shoe settled beside us for the night
 
We are now about two hundred miles away from our start point in Deltaville and if bed wear is a measure of temperature - it is thankfully getting warmer. We actually managed just a t-shirt and undies; a massive difference to the hoodie over a hat, PJ bottoms tucked into socks and the quilt over our heads. Marvelous to be following the birds south
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL A GRAND DAY
