So windy here today. There were several times I wondered whether the trees in the garden would survive! We don't have a huge garden but there are several pine trees at the back that are huge. They sway and groan in the strong winds. So far, they have survived!

We did take a ride in the morning to the lakeshore. The waves weren't wild when we went but I did manage to see a new-to-me bird. An American Avocet. Four of them. I thought, at first, that they were some kind of seagull as they had their heads tucked into their bodies, but when they raised their heads, I could see their curved beaks. They actually curved upwards. 

I took several photos with my camera - here's a couple


We got home in time for husband to go to the Celebration of Life. I did a little crafting this afternoon and listed a few more Ebay auctions. Tomorrow we're off for a walk somewhere. Don't know where yet. The clocks here go back in the early hours so it will be a strange day. I always seem to struggle the first couple of days after any clock change. 

I hope everyone is having a good weekend

Day 309

A nice walk on a windswept, empty beach


  1. Glad your pine trees survived the wind! I don't think I've seen those birds before! They look rather cute! Lovely photo of the beach! Hope you have a lovely day, tomorrow. The time change is always difficult to adjust to for a couple of days. I don't like the fact that it gets darker earlier!

    1. The winds yesterday were really wild. I am so glad they suvived! The birds were really lovely

  2. How pretty those birds are. xx
