Fishing Swans, Fishing Men, and a St. Patricks Day Wedding

A Week of Meandering Around With The Camera

Waiting For The Pool To Open
Every time we pass this house I see these birds bathing on the pool cover.  This time I made Ross stop.
He said, "Go ahead get out and take the picture. They won't fly away."  Uh huh.

Bird Peeking 
Is that a frog in his mouth?

This is what happens when Ross blows the horn so that Lynda can get a cool pic.

The Town Walking Trail
    The trail is built along the abandoned Barnegat Branch Division of the Central Railroad of New Jersey.
It is the ninth longest trail in the state.  When completed, it will occupy 15.6 miles and extends from Barnegat Township to Toms River.

Reeds In The Mist
It was bright and sunny in our neighborhood today when we went out for a ride.  Off in the distance we noticed what we thought were clouds of smoke.   Hoping for a photo op we followed the "cloud".  As we got closer to the bay, we realized that the "could of smoke" was actually mist coming off of the water.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I have created a page for Anna's Diary.  It can be found under the Tab titled Anna's Diary.
I have posted all of the entries to date there, starting with January 1, 1929.

Here is today's entry from Anna's Diary:
Sun. March 17 1929
Attended Mass at "Lady of Good Counsel". Got a flat tire.  Bought two new ones.  Dinner at Mrs. Naps.  We rode to Livingston to see Toni's house for sale.  Stopped at 360.  home. Bill with baby at night. 

[Bill is Anna's brother].


  1. I'm beginning to think you have a magical camera or a magical eye! These are spectacular as always--I especially love the two shots of birds flying off. When I worked at the flower shop we did a St. Patrick's Day wedding--the bride had ten attendants, who all wore black, but the flowers were green roses and bells of Ireland and lime green fuji mums. It was a full Catholic Mass and, of course, the bagpipes. ;)

  2. Thank you for sharing! I like that you captured the Irish wedding! And also that Ross is helping you with the photos! My Bear is starting to get more interested in my blogging.

  3. These are great!  What stories they tell!  I love the explanations too - Go, Ross!  make those birds fly!  I can always tell when we go over to the coast if the fog will be in.   I can usually successfully predict based on the temps at our house and the wind but as we drive over the ridge, I can see the fog bank sitting out there.  Question is:  how close is it?
    Loved the pretty green wedding party!  How fortuitous that you spotted them!
    And your walking trail resembles ours - part of ours is also on the old railroad bed (tracks removed)
