Good morning. The sun is shining and the sky is a beautiful blue. It's looking to be another great day here in my little part of New England. Yesterday was a bit warm, but it was a good day to go to the ocean. And we did. Pogo and Miss Helen and I went to Plymouth Harbor.
Oh my, the sea breezes felt soooo good. The only down side was that there were so many people and boats that there were hardly any birds to be found. We tried to park closer to the Mayflower so that Pogo could run around on the grass, but it was crowded and there were no parking spots.
So, we parked behind a restaurant along the Harbor, and walked around until my legs gave out. Every now and then we found a bench to sit on for a while to give my old legs a break. It really felt good to breathe in the ocean air and listen to the different harbor sounds.
There were so many different types of boats in the water. Here are two that I found most interesting. One is a Paddleboat (steamboat), the Pilgrim Belle, and the other is a water taxi.
I will have more photos of the boats to share as soon as I get them cropped. Because today is Mandarin Orange Monday, I played a bit in Photoshop with a couple of the photos. Sorry, I did not write down the different textures and filters that I used.
It was a long day, and after supper last night, Pogo and I turned in early to watch a bit of TV. I did put the last few rows on the turquoise afghan, so that is finished. Woo Hoo!
An update on Kevin's games --- His team lost the game on Friday (their first loss all season), and won their game yesterday. So they are still in the running for State Championship. Go Team!!!!!!!!!
Now I think I'll have me another cup of coffee and decide what mischief we can get into today. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
