Originally we had a four-day weekend planned to spend at the condo doing some painting and relaxing. Well, the five snow days that we have had already put our school system over the three allotted so we had to give back two now and should we have anymore snow days, they'll be added to the end of the school year.
Still, HWNSNBP and I managed to get an early enough start out on Friday afternoon to make it to the lighthouse for our February visit. Friday was a gorgeous day - near 70° and it's been staying lighter longer so we took advantage knowing that the temperature was going to drop significantly for the rest of the weekend.
There weren't a lot of birds, but this black-headed duck was intent on picking at the rock in the picture....
The beach roses are long gone, but some of the hips still have added interest to the thorny branches.
Of course a lighthouse picture - from behind.
Friday night was also a full moon night and I did my best without my tripod to catch the moon and the reflection over the bay. You can see the moonshine on the water if you look closely.
With the evening came the winds. The condo units are on pile-ons and sway with the gentlest of winds, but we had steady gusts of near 40 mph which made the bed feel like a waterbed. The grasses behind the unit were thrashing about all night and throughout the day on Saturday.
