Welcome to Shabo-Mekaw
Update on Construction Progress
Though we had already done the porch floor in stone, we decided to spiff it up with these old, used bricks.
A couple of weeks ago, I went down to the swirl hole (the part of the Kinneyconick Creek just below our cabins) early in the morning. Usually, I don't get a chance to take pictures until afternoon.
the 'macro' setting ...
... because I was so into photographing these really cool dew-covered spider webs,
two great blue herons flew directly over my head! They're very fast, and the camera was on
So I switched my camera back to the normal mode in case there were more...
... when suddenly a kingfisher flew right in front of me, going in the opposite direction from the herons. I aimed and shot wildly - it was even faster than the herons - and got this horribly blurry picture. (No, I do not have a DSLR.) I circled the kingfisher so you could at least tell that I wasn't making it up.
Less than a minute later,
a third blue heron followed the other two, heading upstream.
Here's what they actually look like:
You can see the mist better where the light comes through the trees...
A view of part of the swirl hole, looking upstream from the island. I'll never be able to show you the whole thing, unless I hire a plane...
The last time we left it, our sweet home-away-from-home looked quite lovely.
The tour guides would like to thank you for coming with us, but they're too tired...
See you later, alligator (or - whatever you are)!
