It's summer

Hello has been a while!  Now it is officially summer....

and as is usual for this time of the year, the entire estuary area is under water.  What isn't usual is the fact that the water levels peaked early and levels are already dropping...

the north end of the estuary is re-emerging, levels must have dropped a couple of feet already so it will be interesting to see how it plays out the rest of the summer.

We drove over to Kilby this afternoon...

there is no beach at the moment...between the number of people, the heat and the mosquitoes all it did was serve to remind me why these next two months are my least favorite out of the entire year!

there is a view of the Harrison River, taken from just before the bridge...hopefully we'll get out in the canoe in the next few days to see if we can find anything of interest.  There is a pair of Osprey nesting on a piling on the other side of the river, we did see some crows, a flicker, a robin, some Barn Swallows, a hummingbird and heard some chickadees while dodging mosquitoes at Kilby.
