We took the long way to breakfast this morning, tooling along backroads and side roads and roads that hug the shore.
Our first stop was a nearby pond. For the past few days it has been home to about eight egrets. Most summers you will see one or two there, along with mallards and wood ducks and Canada geese. But this summer is a banner sesason for egrets locally. I wanted to catch them in digital form.
The birds kindly allowed us each a few shots before flying off to the far end of the pond.
Then we got back into the car and made our way east to the place near the harbor with wonderful farmer's omelets, overflowing with onions, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, ham and cheddar cheese - the best omelets I've had this side of the Atlantic.
I wanted the share this enchanting late summer scene with you.
