brought several surprises...
powder blue skies and darker blue water.
There are always a lot of Gulls.
Most of the commercial boats were out.
The Lilly Rose was here, a boat I have never seen before...
Seeing this Female Long Tailed Duck here at the inlet was a real joy.
As I was taking these pictures, I did not know what I was photographing.
I only knew it was a duck I did not recognize and do not see regularly.
Long Tailed Ducks are only present here in the winter,
they are a diving duck that are associated with open seas in winter, even among tempestuous waves.
I saw them here many years ago...
I only remember seeing the males which have long tails that point up out of the water.
I think this is a Common Loon seen here only in the winter.
Of course there were freshly made donuts and our favorite coffee flavored drink from Dunkin Donuts.
As I sit here and read this, I too am having a donut that Barb picked up yesterday in Rapid City. I don't think I have ever seen a longtail duck but the other is definitely a loon.
Great post, Debbie. Ducks to donuts…who wouldn’t like that?
We had a surprise wedding in the family and I’ve been away. It is good to be visiting you again.
Looks like you had a great time out, and it looks beautiful. Betting that water is cold though! lol....I want those donuts, yum
Haven't had doughnuts in awhile--think I'll go buy some!! I like the mini white powdered ones and also the cream filled Bismarks and the long cream filled chocolate iced ones-- they used to be called " long Johns" but not now-- they have a white fluffy sweet cream filling In side but the Bismark have a cream colored more like a vanilla pudding filling. neither are eclairs.....ANY DOUGHNUTS are good right? LOL
You are having beautiful weather and such a blue sky!
I love the first boat ( a fishing boat?)
My uncle who lived in Connecticut always went to Dunkin donuts. We begin to have donuts were i live.
So nice to see blue sky in your photographs ... ours has been rather wet and grey today!
All the best Jan
Debbie, we use Dunkin Donuts 100% Columbian coffee... and love it. As for donuts, yours look wonderful. I can have the Katz frozen gluten free ones, but not the others. However... when DH goes to Krispy Kreme and comes home with hot glazed, I usually cheat and sneak a half.
Always fun to come across new things isn't it, I bet you were thrilled when you got home and looked at the pictures. I do love how blue the water is.
You and Chuck live in auch a beautiful place, Debbie.
So much to see and enjoy. You always amaze me with your photos.
Please pass me a donut, either one, I'm not choosy. :)
Time to go to Shrimp Box! I am turning 90 this week!
Congrats on the Long Tailed Duck! That water is a fantastic blue. I'm quite certain I'd enjoy both of those donuts!
I love all the various blues you've captured here, and they would certainly chase away the blues if one had them. Thanks for sharing.
