Winter Doldrums Be Gone!*


This morning I could tell that the Island is on the verge of awakening. It started with ravens west raising a ruckus. (Still about housing!) Looking past the Gatehouse, subtle hues of pale greens midst marshy thickets. I’m just counting the weeks before our “peeps” sound off.

Young harbor seals playfully porpoising northside made their big splash, while two bald eagles soared across Money Pond, navigating nearly stealth in flight between Barleyfield Cove and Chocomount.
