Marsh Mowers, Scarf in the Wind, Atlantic City & Bye Bye Birdie

Tough day today.  Filled with sadness.  I miss my Joe.

So, out we went, with camera in hand.  We arrived at our destination.   I spotted a great shot.  I rolled down the window, pointed the camera, pressed the power button and nothing happened.   That's when I remembered that I had forgotten to take the battery out of the charger and put it in the camera.
So, back home we went.  But, I couldn't get the shot out of my head.
So, out we went, once again, camera with battery in hand.

This is the shot:

Of course there were a few more:

 Ross said this machine is used to cut path's through the marshes so boats can get through.  
I wonder if it's called a marsh mower?

The ghost like buildings in the background are casinos in Atlantic City. 

Ross took this one pointing the camera through a hole in a fence.  
 Then he zoomed in on the house

Full zoom focused on the shutters of the house.
Amazing camera!

Great restaurant Antionettas At Pirate's Point Marina.  We celebrated my Mom's 85th birthday there.

Scarf In The WInd
So Cool!

 We were here
 We didn't spot any migratory birds hunters thank goodness.

Bye Bye Birdie
Glad to see you got away safe and sound.

Here is today's entry from Anna's Diary:
Sat. February 23, 1929
Cecile Carr came over to give me a manicure.  Met Jewel down town to go to jeweler's to see about changing her diamond ring.  Went to card party for benefit of Arlington Orphanage at the Washington.


  1. So before I saw the zoom lens go in for the shutters, I wanted you to do that on the door on the second photo - that door caught my attention.  I wanted to close up on just that part -
    And the scarf in the wind against the wind ruffled water - stunning.  and the casino ghosts?  brilliant -
    I always look forward to your posts.

  2. I completely agree with your assessment of the camera.  That zoom lens got us right to the window of that house.  I am flummoxed.
