Summer’s Last Stand
We are fast approaching Labor Day in the US. That marks the end of summer in many ways. Students return to the classroom. School buses return to the highways. We go back to only being able to wear jeans on Fridays, and maybe I’ll start writing something on Mondays. For now, let’s stick with some pictures.
I hope you all have a wonderful week.
My favorite bridge. The stone arch bridge over the Farmington River in Windsor, CT. The river is very low.
I was ready to leave, when I heard AMTRAK heading south.
The tracks turn into Windsor’s train station after crossing the river.
The heron is coming in for a landing.
“You’re getting to be a big girl.”
“Hang on mom, there’s some bugs here.”
The ducks are getting out, the heron is heading in. Breakfast time at the river.
Everyone is scanning the river for food this morning.

Peter Nena has many more interests than power lines, but I always think of him when I see these.
I love seeing these guys in the morning.
This patch almost makes it worth coming to work. Almost.
We’ve switched to using Maddie’s cot on her deck, She settles in for a quieter nap.
“I guess it’s time to get up.”
