Thanks to my sister Anne, I was able to spend long weekend at our family vacation home in Bristol, Maine. Although I was expecting bad weather the whole time, I was fortunate enough to enjoy some sunshine on Friday and Saturday.
The big treat from a photography perspective was some early morning heron photos and a large family of Canadian Geese that has moved into the two coves on either side of the house. I got several good photos of them. On Saturday evening the geese actually chased a heron out of the cove.
It was really good to get the kayak out on the water. One of the most memorable events while kayaking was a sighting of some Harbor Pourpoises. I saw dorsal fins break water four time. I saw one seal way up near the top of the East Branch of the Johns River, which is unusual. I did not see many (two sightings) on the their usual spot near the head of the bay where the east and west beanch meet, but I was out at high tide which is not the best time to see them.
An added pleasant surprise was when Steve and Patricia Carndall stopped by for a visit on Saturday afternoon. Plus my sister Anne and her family arrived Sunday evening so I was able to visit with them and play with Tristan and Erin for a while before leaving on Monday.
