Alexandria Bay

This past weekend we went up north for a little get away. We took our boat so we could cruise up and down the river. On one outing we went to Bolt Castle. The last time Jim and I were there I was pregnant with Nicolas, he is now 7 1/2. In that time they finished Mr. and Mrs. Bolts bedrooms and bathrooms. They are beautiful. A room that I could easily sleep in. Very comfortable and pretty. I did take a few photos of the rooms but am not posting them. I am posting a few photos of the walls around the castle.

Loons at Raquette Lake

I have been going to the Adirondack mountains with my husband for 12 years now. I fell in love with the area and the loons. I have been trying for the past 12 years to get photo's of them. They are an allusive bird. You can hear them and see them but if they see you, they go under the water to emerge farther away. This year I finally took some photo's that I am happy with. Although I think I will be getting an even more powerful lens in the future so I can get even better photo's. Aren't they the most beautiful bird!

Little Chick-a-dee

Spring is coming. I have a bunch of little birds at my feeder today. We have had so much snow over the past few weeks that the birds haven't been around much. I saw a cardinal this morning but by the time I got my camera and put the big lens on it, he flew away. I'm hoping that he knows the feeder is here and will be back. The blue jays haven't really been around either. I hear them but they aren't coming to the feeder. Not enough activity around it yet I guess. I'm waiting for the squirrel and chipmunks to find it. Once that happens, the seed will be gone in no time. I would like to grow sunflowers this year and harvest the seeds. Not sure how many I will need to be able to feed the birds all winter. Probably more than I am going to plant!

Late winter snow storm

We had a pretty powerful storm blow through here yesterday. It dumped tons of snow on us. Looking out the windows on the side of the house, the snow is half way up the windows. When the boys look out the window all they can see is snow. These are the windows I'm referring to. Thankfully Jim had someone plow this morning so we didn't have to shovel.

Winter day

We woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland the other day. Actually it still looks like it did a few days ago. Seeing the snow on the trees makes a winter day special. Today the sun is out and it is hitting on the frigid snow creating millions of snow diamonds. It is very beautiful out there.
