You have been where I was today…..sitting at the computer and all of a sudden the sun bursts through the clouds and hits you in the eye. Beautiful! Because I can – I did. A spontaneous picnic. I keep a basket with a blanket and binoculars at the ready and happened to have some left over cheese and crackers from all the parties recently. Some fruit and a cup of tea and I was on the path. Two minutes later I am on the edge of the ocean studying the fishing practices of the Common Merganser. Nothing common about a spontaneous picnic in the sunshine in January – bliss!
