Z and I went to Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge last week. We only saw three other people while we were there but the animals were out taking advantage of the sun too. Grand total: two different kinds of turtles, a mud-covered frog, a red-winged blackbird, a skink, and an otter.
This is Z trying to get a better otter-viewing vantage point. For a second I thought he was going to jump in and swim after the otter but fortunately he stayed on dry land...or dock.
The turtles were all soaking up the sun with their legs and necks stretched out.
And there was even a little poetry to accompany the natural wonders.
Practical walking gear is my specialty.
All in all, a pretty perfect day.
