December 1st - officially our first day of summer.
The dog and I went to a beach to look for birds to post on Carmi's Fly theme,
but the tide was full and there were no waders around...
There were some high fliers overhead
Of course, we still managed to enjoy our walk greatly.
It was a beautiful, still morning
Driving away I spotted this blue heron, but when he took off
he was lost into the trees before I could manage a decent shot...
"birds that rose and fell in the sky, like supplementary
breathings of the tide"
