They are so cute! We live next door to a National Wildlife Refuge and frequently make the walk to the end of the road to check things out.
Parts of it are not open to the public, just to the critters. Apparently the critters won't make babies if too many people are poking their heads in. We are glad to cooperate and stay out of their way.
But if you walk down our road, there are beautiful things to see. It changes with the seasons.
These grasses are called phragmites and they are everywhere in the marshes by the end of the summer, weighted down by their heavy heads.
This is the Back Bay. It's a large body of water edged by a narrow strip of land across from us that keeps out the Atlantic ocean. The land on the other shore is the northernmost portion of the famous strip of land known as the Outer Banks. It looks like a line in these pictures.
If you were to drive South on that little strip of land you would be in North Carolina. They don't let you do that, though. It's a bird sanctuary.
They close the Back Bay in winter, but we pedestrians who live on this street are able to slide in beside the poles and stay a while.
Back in the house, I sit in my chair and take a shot of my gorgeous roses. These are the dribs and drabs of my summer roses. So gorgeous on my cluttered table next to my favorite leather chair. My spot.
The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.
