|Crescent Beach - a small marina|
|Lovely sky and water reflections|
|Beautiful peach-colored hollyhock near the old farmhouse|
|Stewart Farm - heritage site of farm home and outbuildings|
|Two very photogenic toms|
|Their chatty lady-friend - she chattered away the entire time I was there taking photos.|
|Here she is.|
|The toms were in display the entire time. Maybe the hen was sweet-talking them???|
|Then along came the family of Chinese geese. Dad was very protective, so I kept my fingers close to myself!|
|Next door to the geese and turkeys was a huge pig pen.|
|And almost home, I stopped to take some photos of the local sheep.|
I don't do well with a lot of noise and loud people. My landlady was having children, grand-children and great grand-children, and assorted other people, so I decided to head out at dinner time and see if I could get some reference boat photos for a painting I'd like to do. I missed out on the boats, but when driving around, did get lots of animal photos. The turkeys were hilarious, with the hen chattering and chuckling and squeaking to me [or herself], and I was trying to talk turkey back to her. The toms were on constant display, all puffed up, with tails fully flared, looking utterly alien. And the geese were delightful - mom and dad and four goslings.
The area where I live is farming country - small hobby farms and a lot of wooded areas. And close by [about 10 minutes away] is the ocean, with miles of beaches, piers, boats and a long promenade. So I got a bit of everything today with my camera, and came home a happy camper!
Thank you so much for dropping by!
