A Beautiful day to be outside

Today, I took the day off and went for a walk. We went to Ninigret park, which is an old airforce base that has been made into a wildlife sanctuary. The new paths are gravel, so it is nice to walk on and the paths go through wooded areas, fields and points where you can enjoy the breezes of the salt water pond and the ocean beyond.

There are different sections of the park and in one cove we saw a Sand Piper darting about in the shallows looking for a meal.
He was all by himself, usually they are in groups, darting back and forth in the sand and waves.



At the point, we watched as the seagulls soared in the winds. Beyond the trees are dunes and the ocean.



I finally mounted my angel design and have it listed on ebay this week. If you would like to have this beautiful piece for your own, you can visit my ebay site to see my offerings. Hopefully I will have my newest piece ready this weekend. I am making a special board to mount it on, so look for pictures soon.



Last, but not least, is Dora, being Dora. She is just too cute and such a pain and she knows it. This is her rare moment of being nice. The rest of the time she was opening doors and drawers and trying to get the cat treats on her own. She is just too smart for her own good. This is a good picture, showing her size. That is a large rug and she fills a good portion of it, and she is still growing.

Hi Debbie,
I found your blog through primitive betty and now I check in almost daily.
While reading your post this morning and looking at your pictures, I realized that I recognized some!
I checked your profile and found you live in RI!! I am so happy to find another friend in cyberspace from the biggest little state in the union.
There doesn't seem to be many of us
God bless,
