Gregg was able to take the day off so we decided to explore the Eastern Shore of Maryland this weekend. I took my laptop along with me and the hotel we are in has Wi-Fi, so here I am, checking out the photos we took today and posting them for you to see.
These were taken at the Maritime Museum in St. Michael's. We walked around the marina and came across a family of ducks.
We were startled to see a rather large, four-foot long snake swimming near them and were worried for the babies. Two other ducks came out to investigate but the snake wanted none of any of them and detoured around our family. I breathed a sigh of relief as you might imagine.
On our way down a country road later I was very excited to see what I thought was a bald eagle near its nest. It was far away and this was the closest I could get with the zoom that I had.
In the next tree was another, which I presumed to be its mate. On our way back along the same country road an eagle flew over us but had disappeared before we could investigate. I am still wondering if these are bald eagles but I am almost positive that they were. We were near a nature reserve at the time. But of course I know better now, they are Osprey aren't they?
