Just About Nothing - Enjoy The Fourth

The Chinese regard fish as symbolic of abundance and plenty. Apparently, a fish's tail is a good place for a nap, too. Why haven't I thought of that before?
The waning moon to the west.
The Ospreys have been very busy at low tides in Totman Cove fishing for Flounder. There are as many as a dozen of them at once. The clumsy fledglings are honing their fishing techniques.
The wild, Maine strawberries that can be found on the roadsides and fields are almost gone, thanks in part to guys like this. Yummy! I hope you have a wonderful Fourth Of July and eat lots of delicious things, perhaps strawberry shortcake is on your menu! We will be having lobster, corn on the cob, potato salad and coleslaw, to name but a few of the items. Most of all, savor the company of those you love and those who love you.

  1. Great sounding 4th dinner. I really enjoyed running across your interesting blog and all the great pictures. The golden eagle story was especially fascinating as spouse and I participated in a Golden Eagle survey in the Upper Mississippi Valley last fall. This was thru the National Eagle Center. The participants identified over 100 Goldens wintering here along the Big River.

  2. Happy Independence Day Robin! We had lobster and corn-on-the-cob with blueberry pie for desert.It doesn't get any better than this!

  3. Thank you, Gentlemen. I'm going to be chained to the treadmill for the rest of my life after what I've eaten in the past four days. And still, there are a couple of ribs beckoning from the fridge..........
