Lighting of the Boats Parade, Essex CT
On Sunday night was the annual Lighting of the Boats Parade in Essex.
There were quite a few boats participating, however the video below shows one of the best.
Thanksgiving Weekend Project
We now have a new view from our bathroom!
I drew this free hand with pencils and my foam block to make a straight line. Then I filled in the color with craypas crayons that Julie gave me awhile ago for Christmas. I wasn't planning on this much progress; it was just supposed to be a sketch. If I expected to do so much I would have primed the wall. Too late now!
There is a sailboat heading for the sea, one out on the horizon, and one anchored in front of the beach. There is a kayaker over on the left shore, and some houses dotting the right hillside, one on top with a great view of the ocean. George has asked me to add a fisherman so he can picture himself there. (Not that he won't be fishing in paradise soon enough...) So you can look at the view and picture yourself in any number of awesome places. Oh, I also drew in a little bar on the beach, for Happy Hour.

Bored at Work
This morning I changed the language options on the office coffee machine to Dutch. It is only 9:19am and it has already paid off with a good chuckle.

Sunday Paddle- My First Eagle
Going out for paddle on a wonderfully brisk fall day!
All bundled up and ready to go!
This is the first eagle I've photographed in the wild. I paddled up as close as I could, which was to the shore of the spit of land this tree is on (in North Cove, Essex); I was about 20 yards from the base of the tree.

A Paddle with Alison
On a windy and sunny day last weekend, Alison and I went for a great paddle around Essex. We dropped in North Cove and paddled our way over to Middle Cove.
Once securely on land... we went across the street to the Black Seal to reward ourselves with beer and yummy food. Our original plan to paddle back to the car after lunch(against the wind), was soon abandoned, and we instead walked back to the car and went to pick up the boats where we left them. Good times!

Amazing view from Jeff's deck, with St. Joseph's steeple peeking over the tree tops.

Not too messy...
VW Pumpkin looks like a scary face! Bonus!
Fall Ferry Ride
George is heading across the river to mow, so I tagged along with my kayak to be dropped off on the other side.
Beautiful day for a paddle!
